Why You Should Listen To STAR FM

Music/shows

Star FM has a large music base of over 700,000 thousand songs and each announcer is unique to their own show. There is no station playlist so you won’t hear the same music over and over. Every program is unique and different.

Specialty programs:

These programs are based around a certain theme IE: Music Genre, Year “1990″.

General Programs:

These programs have no real theme; they are generally music picked by the announcer as the show goes on. This is considered Adult Contemporary music from the 1960’s to current hits.

Requests:

Many Announcers are happy to take requests but songs will only be played if announcers are taking requests at the time and if we have the song in our database and there is sufficient time and it fits with the timeslot.
