After close on 10 years as a purely online radio station, we are excited to announce that the South African broadcasting authority has granted Zone Radio an FM licence. In as much as this is great news, it means that we will have to relocate and reconfigure our current studio. We anticipate that this will take about a month. To this end, all live programs and special features will be suspended during September, but our auto-streaming will continue as usual.
We will be back early in October and look forward to presenting you with a “new and improved” Zone Radio experience both online and on 88.5 fm in the Western Cape’s “Deep South”
A special note to musicians: Please note that we have temporarily suspended all new music submissions as well as our “No Hoops Required” feature. Our commitment to new music play-listings remains intact and we will be accepting submissions from mid-October and will re-launching a new format for No Hoops Required in November.

Of course, he’s the guy who invented the battery. I know. You knew that. Napolean figured it was the least he could do given that Alessandro invented the very thing […]
