Expresions of interest in Groove 107.7FM

Hopefully you already know that Groove is the only station of its kind in New Zealand and pretty much the only locally owned and operated independent commercial station in Wellington and the only station in the world broadcasting Wellington generated content 24 hours a day.

Well, we're inviting expressions of interest in the lease of the station including studio, equipment and use of transmission site either to continue Groove as a going concern or equipment/studio as set up to broadcast a format of your own choice.

As a second option, we would also consider sale of the station or equipment.

To find out more, email: dean at or call, leaving a message if neccesary, on 04-381 4766.

Klaus Doldinger concert tomorrow night!

Groove currently has a number of Klaus's tracks on-air in the 'A' rotate.
Klaus Doldinger’s PASSPORT
"He refined the modest Kraut rock into world class Jazz rock." – Sueddeutsche Zeitung

Klaus Doldinger is German jazz royalty and is here in New Zealand with his band Passport for the very first time.

Regarded as the most successful German Jazz artist his list of achievements could fill a book: numerous German Music Awards, Monterey Jazz Festival Award, a German honorary Medal First Order, film music to 'Never Ending Story' and 'Das Boot', honorary citizen of New Orleans, tours to 50 countries, 2000 compositions and the list goes on...

On his first tour to Australia his warm up act was AC/DC! Doldinger has been on stage for nearly 60 years and his global touring schedule is still huge. He founded his band Passport 40 years ago and has always attracted the country's best musicians. It's no surprise that PASSPORT is the most celebrated live jazz act in Germany.

In his unique melodious style he weaves beautifully haunting melodies, picks up the pace with infectious sounds and rhythms often inspired by his trips to Brazil and Morocco.

Roll out the red carpet, this is your chance to see one of the greatest living saxophonists in the world on stage in Wellington.
