Triple M Network

Not a proper lineup page, but it’s in their station description if you count that (which I don’t).

The regional stations (who most only have 1 breakfast host) don’t have anything listed

Using LiSTNR seems a bit clunky. With the old TripleM app you could see song history as well quite easily. Not sure if LiSTNR will work overseas ?

@Viclistener not outside Aus and NZ unless you use a VPN.

Was Luke Bona’s Nightshift talk program on this morning of the public holiday? Pat Panetta covering for the survey break.

I see they haven’t even bothered to make the LiStNr app iPad friendly.

SCA aren’t serious about investing in the app. They’re hoping for a buyout to free up cash and clear a few old execs off their books such as old man Totters.

In fairness to SCA they brought in Scott Muller who is a radio legend and the music across the FM and DAB stations has improved a lot since October last year (in Sydney at least).

Exactly and didn’t they need to? What was their strategic plan prior to not have a brain of Scott’s calibre there?

Already, Irene had gone to Nova. SCA needed a valuable music brain such as Scott.

To be honest I still don’t think the music is in a great position across the network. Too much focus on the Pure Gold market (80’s and early 90’s) and not enough 00’s to now. The TripleM I grew up with in Melbourne played the classics but also promoted new rock which was a clear point of difference to Gold.

I agree the music still isn’t right. It’s too narrow and rarely plays a big variety of rock styles. They don’t play enough stuff from the Police and a ton of others and instead fall back on the usual flogged Chisel songs etc. I also agree they should include more modern rock.

But for me the big problem is I’m not prepared to listen to the endless talk and sport to get to the music. The format just doesn’t work for me and I don’t like the blokey bogan vibe.

And I’ve got Rebel so why would I bother with Triple M at all?

I also agree. Classic & new rock is what Triple M needs to focus on. That way they’ll cater for their favourite bogan market, but also attract new music lovers with the latest rock releases (without competing with Hit, Nova or KIIS networks).

For me that is what Rebel does well. Mixing well-known classic rock tracks (although not all bogan, some even on the “softer” side) with newer, heavier, album and more alternative rock.

Looks like Triple M Perth is trying a more local approach to winning the Perth market.

Where is the alternative? I just had a look a the last hour of Triple M Perth log and it look pretty much the same as 96FM music log.

Yes, there isn’t a lot of “new rock” around

Obviously a direct dig at 96FM’s Real Music.

I’d say they will launch it on Tuesday next week, after the long weekend in Perth. It’s Flock of 80’s Friday today, so it would be a very similar playlist to 96FM.

Let’s see what next week holds. I believe “Perths Real Alternative “ was used during the period when they had the standalone digital station so I suspect the text you see on the app could be an error as opposed to a new format but fingers crossed

I doubt it’s an error. It appears on the Triple M Perth website as their generic on-air now program.
