I agree, submit your feedback and let them know.

There would be a keen market for the 80’s on the Gold Coast as 94.1 is too old and Gold 92.5 has moved younger.

Incidentally, Dan and Hans have changed the station positioned from the best music of the 80’s, 90’s and now to the Gold Coast’s best music.

Agree, it’s a horribly formatted station. Of all the songs you could populate a playlist with and it is so narrow.


#83

Some good ones there (DAF-Powerfinger) but there are some horrid ones there also (Believe-Cher)


#84

I heard there is going to be a change coming up soon. Have you had any problem getting onto their Web pages? I have for the past few weeks.


#85

Ive heard that too mate. Ill believe it when I see it.


#86

Looks like there’s a Content Director role going for all 4 stations (2QN, 3NE & Edge)

#87

The stations are a total mess at the moment. There was going to be a big change last December and it never happen, but going by that it looks like they are trying to get something in place and hopefully there is a change coming soon. :slight_smile:


#88

I’ve noticed that B-Rock in Bathurst now has their playlist posted on their website, going back to a week: http://www.brockfm.com.au/

This could make for an interesting comparison with Triple M & Rebel FM as far as rock stations in Australia go. :slight_smile:


#89

I have heard there will be new web pages soon… When they get the new Content Director change will happen, what I have been told. Their biggest problem is the music and programing. There has been a lot of complaints about the music on the Edge stations since the start of the year.


#90

It manages to be both all over the place and too repetitive - you’d hear a similar rotation in January as you would in April.

This is good to hear - hope they’ll go with Aiir’s CMS (currently used by 97.3 Coast FM & 6mm Mandurah WA)


#91

Hopefully with some better hostin too. The current websites take ages to load because they’re hosted in house - from what I can tell they’re using an old computer that can barely run Wordpress and the ADSL connection in Wangaratta.


#92

Very true mate, I swear it has been the same playlist for the past 4 year, 24/7. The only thing that they change is the newer music and they will repeat that new song every 2 to 3 hours. The other day between midday to 5PM I heard Touch by Little Mix 4 times between those hours. Its just very lazy programing.

It need to change in a big way to get their listeners and customers back, if they don’t I think they will be in trouble.

I heard that they are going to start steaming again in June or July.


#93

theinsider, do you know if they have found an new Content Director?


#94

Edge has heaps of potential. Hope they get it right


#95

Me too mate


#96

Possibly way off topic and in the wrong section but I think Melbourne is desperate for a station similar to Hot Tomatoe or Edge. I’m mid 40’s and craving for a “real music variety” type station 80’s, 90’s to now. Love the old stuff but also love the current hits. I find myself flicking between Triple M, Smooth and the 3 hits stations (Nova, Kiss & Fox). Go on holidays to the Gold Coast and hear stations like hot tomatoe and love it plus love the local and live feel. Can only hope for change!!

We’ve got one - Gold 104.3


#98

Gold never play any new music. I get sick of hearing old music all the time. I think 96fm in Perth play new and old. Melbourne and Sydney radio landscape is to tight.

I am 42 and love the SCA Greatest Hits from the 80’s to now format. I am a fan of the old mixed with the new stuff, but not a big fan of some of the top 40 teeny pop stuff that Hit flogs to death.

If Edge had a “Real Music Variety from the 80’s, 90’s and Now” format with less of the top 40 teeny pop stuff and more of the top rock, pop rock and alternative new songs and have a “No Repeat Workday” I think they would be on a winner. :slight_smile:

I personally hate the ‘variety’ stations. I like all music but I find most variety stations are bland, boring, safe and repetitive. I like the specific format of stations and don’t mind flicking around. NZ Radio does this and all their stations sound 200% better.
