The Lounge King has returned every Thursday from 5.00 - 6.00pm!

 
The return of the international man of music and retro lounge style. He is like no-one else on radio, you must visit the velvet Boudoir of the :: The Lounge King ::


Now THURSDAY NIGHTS from 5.00 - 5.30pm exclusively on-air and online on Groove 107.7FM.



While I've got your attention, two more things:

  • I'd like to publicly thank Johnny from One eyed FM. That is the station that was broadcasting on the same frequency as us in Newlands and causing interference to our transmission. They shifted along the dial to 107.5FM which we really appreciate. As it happens, they have since moved the station to Blenhiem but are still streaming online and we wish them all the best.
  • As part of our continued test of the new streaming technology, please let us know if you cannot play the stream at your place of work (i.e. through a Firewall) but were able to previously (with the old player).
Ok, that's the housekeeping, back to the Grooving.
