Cox Media Group Classic Rock KISS-FM (99.5 KISS)/San Antonio is giving away a divorce for Valentine's Day. The 99.5 KISS Billy Madison Show will celebrate Valentine’s Day by announcing the winner of a simple agreed divorce from the Law offices of Carroll and Hinojosa.  Starting February 4 and continuing through February 13 at 12 p.m., the Billy Madison Show will read parts of the submissions on the air and qualify that person for the chance to win the divorce.  “The response has been incredible. You wouldn’t believe the amount of people we’ve heard from. The entries have ranged from simple—“I hate my spouse but I love KISS”—to comical—“I just want out. He doesn’t have money and I don’t want his (word referring to private anatomy deleted), I just want out!” said KISS PD Keith Hastings.
