From the vision of a couple of “radio buffs”, and the establishment of our radio station by the five founding members, our first broadcast took place in March 1993. Since then, we have achieved considerable milestones (see our history page), culminating in the move to our North Gosford premises in 2009 with a broadcasting licence current to 2017. Since 1999, we have broadcast 24/7. We also include news/sport/weather bulletins on the hour from 6am to 9pm daily. Our staff are all volunteers ranging from presenters who broadcast 3 hour programs each day, to support staff who manage a myriad of things in the office, to the management committee who ensure than everything functions as in any normal business. We are non-profit and self-funded and each year we undertake a range of fund-raising events to ensure that we can continue to provide the music entertainment that the community enjoys.
You will see us out and about at community events broadcasting live from our van. We have the Freemasons Central Coast to thank for the very generous donation in 2012 that made this new van possible. Additional donations were made by Diggers, The Entrance; Gosford RSL Club; Gosford RSL Sub-branch, The Central Coast Leagues Club.
Our music ranges from 1945 through to 1985 and covers most genres. All presenters assemble their own playlists so the variety of music and knowledge is considerable. Our target audience is the mature listener but younger listeners also enjoy some of the “older stuff” too!
The Beatles, The Eagles, The Bee Gees, The Supremes, The Platters, The Beach Boys, Neil Diamond, Barbra Streisand, Judy Stone, Nat King Cole, Doris Day and Elvis Presley are amongst the thousands of artists we feature.
