AM FM Radio

Post by Scrappy on Sun Oct 18, 2015 6:52 pm

Ive been living in a time warp
Listening to CDs in the car
Occasionally listening to a select few stations

I intend to surf the stations from here on
So who are the SA radio stations and what are they about ?

with radio i'm old school, i listen to am radio most of the time when i have it on although it isn't on very much these days, i religiously would listen to the 5AA sports show every weeknight & Saturday mornings but the show has in my opinion gone down hill at an alarming rate over the last few years & only hear bits & pieces when at work as i don't bother to turn the radio up anymore, however i do listen to Life fm for their sanfl broadcasts Very Happy

I find the stations pretty one dimensional.

Even MMM which plays classic rock, I find to be the same old same old.

Radio is too main stream formula driven and I find myself turning to community stations like 3D. However, having to suffer through death metal is the painful reality.

There are few good jazz offerings or non-mainstream alternatives.

Radio needs to get more innovative. But then they have the commercial realities to consider.

Online choice driven stations are my current preference. You can choose the style you want.

Ventured down to the Coast FM day
Very enjoyable day
Live bands got the place boppin
There was a dance floor on the oval
Youre never too old to rock and roll

Did a studio tour
Had not realised most or all DJs do the station work for FREE

There were a few Record/CD and Music memorabilia stands
Also had novelty stalls, clothing and craft and more

If you enjoy good ol fashioned music, would suggest you Rock up to next years gig

Jeremy must have taken great pride working at 5DN
He agreed with the new owners to continue his morning show
