Radio outside of Australia - Whats good?

Yep, KOLA was the station I had in mind when I mentioned out of area stations

Not wanting to hijack the thread - but those who listen to Radio X (or R1 back when he was on it) - what is the appeal to Chris Moyles? Whatever it is, I just dont get it :slightly_smiling:

Yeah, I regularly listen to Kiss 92, Gold 905 from Singapore, but my favourite station in Singapore is Class 95FM.

@MarkHD thanks for the tip on The Wave - I’m finding myself addicted to their Just Played list!

@Brianc68 - you’re welcome, a great station and something lacking over here for sure.

Moyles is a dying breed in the UK. A proper radio personality, who is a true radio geek at heart, bucking the trend of fast-tracked TV celebs with their 45 second identikit links. Like many of the best, he’s loved and hated in equal measure.


I guess it really comes down to what your interested in. For music I often get on the Digitally Imported app as it has stations for a lot of different music genres. I think it’s more EDM skewed but the sort of stuff that I’m into anyway.

ZM and The Hits for Me

I leave this here as this thread seems the best fit.

Anyone else listen to Ministry of Sound Radio?

I sometimes listen to it on Sonos and when I went to listen tonight they are broadcasting a recorded looping message between songs about taking a break.

The Ministry of Sound Radio Facebook page is also gone (the album one is still up).

The message on the radio website reads;

“Ministry of Sound LIVE will be taking some time off the air while we work on exciting new projects…”

Although makes no mention of a return to air date.

I certainly hope they return to air although Raw FM isn’t bad in the meantime.

Currently BBC World Service English is available on analogue/DAB Radio, online, and through its partner stations around the world whilst other BBC Radio stations can be accessed outside the UK via the BBC website


Radio 2 yes please!!!

To bring this thread back to life, there’s been plenty of suggestions lately in both the “Great Songs on Radio” & “Digital Radio” threads of the following overseas stations that are seen as decent substitutes to the now-departed Classic Rock Digital, which shut down on DAB+ for being “too popular”.

These include, among many others:

KCDX from Arizona
Rock Antenne Classic Perlen from Munich
Radio Caroline from UK

The Sound from across the ditch in NZ can also be seen as a decent substitute.


The Sound in LA would probably also fit that description - (album based) classic rock.


I get the feeling that The Sound in NZ got their branding and format from 100.3 The Sound in LA

I like listening to K-Earth 101 on a Saturday Afternoon as they play heaps of awesome 80’s music.

Coast and Mix from NZ are my go-to stations in the office

Good list. I’d add Absolute Radio UK - both the main channel and the classic rock channel to that list.

Brian FM - while the format is nothing new… it’s a good listen. ~ certainly a little bit edgier than OMG!

I like the name


Brian is a Jack of all trades as far as his music policy goes. I may have picked up the 105.9 outlet via E-skip last week; it was an UNID Kiwi station playing 80s music.

Did you ever listen Iain Lee when he was on Absolute?

Iain is now doing late nights on TalkRadio in the UK.
