96FM – ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC
96FM – ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC
‘Sunshine Hits’ on 96 is the stations motto. However, what is a ‘Sunshine Hit’ you may ask? Basically, it’s any music that is bright, popular, uplifting, with a feel good factor and compliments Pattaya as a fun city. Of course, not everyone will be satisfied by our output but other stations are available, providing dance, rap, extended news etc.. If that still doesn’t fulfill your needs, the internet can provide every genre available.
Our philosophy at Pattaya People Radio is to provide a commercial soundtrack to each beautiful day here in our wonderfully colourful city targeted to the age range of Ex Pats most likely to be listening to local radio on a daily basis, whether at home, driving, or living far away but needing a connection to keep in touch with this area.
Therefor you’re going to hear plenty of singalongable classic oldies with a smattering of recent releases that will fit into the ‘Sunshine Hit’ description. In addition there’s news from around the world and a regularly updated ‘Whats On – Pattaya Events and Gig Guide’ featuring a ‘heads up’ on what’s coming up in the coming week and in a few weeks time. We even try to make the ads entertaining so it’s a feast on non stop fun.
We have hosts and feature programming but the music is the main ingredient. Best way to judge is by observing how the next track that comes on makes you feel. Does it make you smile and get you trying to sing. Does it make you feel like dancing or, at least, tapping your fingers or foot.
Feedback is always useful and the biggest response we get are from those sixties and seventies fans with the eighties another popular era.
Let’s face it, songs by the The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Small Faces, The Who, Tamla Motown, etc., will never die and still sound as fresh as when they were first released. Tracks by T.Rex, David Bowie, The Bee Gees, Abba and other amazing musical seventies artists have a fun quality that has never been surpassed. The appearance of the synthesizer in the eighties changed the sound of popular music and a whole new generation of shiny artists emerged focusing on production as well as good songwriting and performance. In addition there have been some original and interesting new artists in recent years who make great radio tracks. Even the fifties, despite using basic recording techniques, gave us Rock ‘n Roll artists with so much character and style that certainly fit into the ‘Sunshine Hit’ category.
So, our lives really can be all about the music we love and enhance our existence on this planet everyday. 96FM is the one station in town that cares about its’ musical output and tries to give that ‘wow’ factor everytime a new track is played.
Whatever you might be doing, driving, cooking, relaxing by the pool, partying, …. Enjoy the vibrant and go-ahead dynamic sound of ‘Sunshine Hits’ on 96FM, Pattaya People Radio…….DIG IT.
