The year of hope has arrived. We trying to figure out what happened to the last year with all its memories. The silly days have come and now gone.
We have been on the air now almost for four years, what has changed I ask myself, nothing much but the quality of the station has. The music is cleaner, better and still adding to the repertoire.
This year going to concentrate on the South African music scene which did produce many stars to become world-renowned stars.
At times when I am not able to listen to 70vibe-fm, oh yes I am one of the few station managers that do listen to their stations, I listen to the competition station on the air.
In my thoughts, I think they are doing a good job, but then a half hour passes and I feel compelled to change the station because I have heard it all before. I ask myself why must this station always play the same songs over and over again as if they don't have anything else.
When we turn on the radio's we tend to hear more of the seventies and eighties music being repeated on a daily basis.
This was the time when music was being shaped by what it is today. Listening to modern music I notice that the seventies has its influence, but what becomes rather irritating is that they all seem to play the same songs over and over again. These programming directors have no heart when it comes to selection.
It's almost three years that we have been on the internet, giving you all the sounds published in the seventies.
The road there was difficult as we are dependent on the Internet providers for internet connects. But faced with an old Telkom infrastructure we are unable to hold a stable uploading stream which is very disturbing.
Now, we just are waiting for fibre to end all problems which are going to happen, when unable to say.
