DZFX 101.1 (1980–1985)Edit

Owned by the Makati Broadcasting Network, it transferred from the 87.5 mHz and began broadcasting. It played classical songs until October 11, 1985, and a few minutes before 12 noon, it played its last song, a Mozart piece, just before the top of the hour. A five-second silence ensued, and the production launch presentation was played saying goodbye to DZFX and saying hello to DWKS-FM or KISS-FM.

Kiss FM 101.1 (1985–1988)Edit

Shortly after DZFX 101.1's sign off in October 11, 1985 it rebranded as Kiss FM 101.1 (call letters DWKS) with studios located at 14th floor, Insular Life Building, Ayala Ave. cor. Paseo de Roxas, Makati Central Business District. It introduced innovations like having the frequency number on its telephone number, programs like the " Top 20 at 12" and the launch date as 10-11, standing as the frequency. From 1985, it had the Contemporary Hit Radio format, competing directly with 99.5 RT.

Kiss Jazz (1988–1992)Edit

It changed its name to Kiss Jazz 101.1 and transformed into a smooth jazz format from 1988 to 1990 competing directly with Citylite 88.3 (now Jam 88.3) before it quietly went off the air.

101.1 Showbiz Tsismis (1995–1998)Edit

Launched in December 18, 1995, MBC acquired the 101.1 FM frequency and launched the first show business gossip and music-format FM station in the country, 101.1 Showbiz Tsismis. At that time, its call sign was DWST, which stood for "Showbiz Tsismis" (Showbiz Gossip). 101.1 Showbiz Tsismis had a mix of show business news and the latest music hits, and even employed reporters with a reporting style similar to that of local AM stations.

101.1 YES! FM (1998–present)Edit

On December 8, 1998, 101.1 was re-launched as YES FM! with a different call sign (DWYS). Its format was hot adult contemporary / easy listening similar to its sister station 90.7 Love Radio and became the undisputed number 1 FM station in 1999 to 2002. On July, 2002, all MBC stations from Makati City were relocated and transferred at Star City Complex in Pasay, Philippines and in 2008, YES! FM 101.1 was again repackaged and it adopted the slogan Automatic 'Yan! YES-FM. The playlists used were almost the same as 90.7 Love Radio's but the programming was different. In 2012, as part of "Radyo? Dalawa Lang Yan!" campaign (which was launched by Yes FM and Love Radio in the first quarter of 2011), some DJs from Love Radio such as Missy Hista, Rica Herra, Rico Pañero and Lala Banderas are moved to Yes FM in exchange to Diego Bandido, Emma Harot, Robin Sienna and Kristin Dera, as well to the new slogan as the "Hayahay" station which later became also the slogan on other Yes FM and several Hot FM and Love Radio stations.
