Reviews about radio station

  • Carmel
    I listen to the station every night, fall off to sleep, and wake to it. Since I've been doing this I have noticed that I often wake in a good mood. I have also noticed that my memory has improved. I am remembering things long forgotten. The music transports me to my childhood and makes me feel good. I would like to request that you play Slade. They were a great band and I'm sure my fellow-listeners would be really happy to hear them, cheers
