    Default Whats happening with the radio....

    Ok, so I know the full launch was on July 1st and you were promised some programming... well, it's still on it's way, I promise! Just things are taking a bit longer than expected (as per usual). We'll get there though....

    Well, you'd better get a move on as you'll get nowt done when the Bermuda Bandits and Dawn's crew arrive.

    I can see things happening at the top in the radio box. The radio stream seems to be squashed to the one side, so I can't see what's playing etc. Thought it was my PC playing up until I saw the other words come on. Maybe could do with shortening the Chatroom box a bit?

    Does this activity mean long-awaited changes are afoot?

    There's a few things happening, but don't get over excited just yet! This is just the precursor.

    Not get excited???? This is me you're talking to. I'm all of a quiver.

    I'll just sit in my corner and wait patiently or at least I'll practice sitting in my corner waiting patiently.

    Just to let all you peeps know - I am constantly updating the playlist on the radio, so if you search for a song and it's not there, try again in a few days! In the meantime remember, send any special requests through and I'll see what I can do

    Out of interest, there are a few Kiwi artists on the playlist and I am looking to add some more as time goes on: Currently, the Kiwi artists on the playlist are:-

    Evermore (currently my favourite band!)
    Opshop (another awesome Kiwi talent)
    Matt Saunoa (NZ Idol 2006 winner)
    Tim Finn (ex Split Ends member)
    The Exponents (famous in NZ, not least for being the group who sung 'Why Does Love Do This To Me' on the TV for the Air New Zealand/All Blacks ad!)

    I hope I haven't missed any other NZ artists that are currently on the list - if I have, please correct me!

    More Kiwi artists coming soon:
    Hayley Westenra
    Bic Runga
    Shihad
    Dave Dobbyn


    Keep tuning in!

    Just curious and been meaning to ask for a while, but, when you want to make a request and the little box comes up asking who you want to dedicate it to, how does that dedication manifest itself on the radio? Presumably a voice doesn't come on and speak the dedication, so does it appear in words across the top where the streaming Now Playing bit is?

    Just in case I ever have the urge.

    At present it only shows up on the website radio page, but that will change in time
