we're on the air!
On Tuesday, 2/12/2014, around 3 pm we installed a loaner transmitter and we are back as suddenly as we disappeared. The loaner transmitter, from Auckland, is working fine and we are so grateful.
Thanks to all who have shared their concern for our operation and we are especially grateful to those who are donating money AND their valuable time. THANK YOU!
Welcome to TAURANGA Village Radio MUSEUM INCORPORATED SOCIETY
Village Radio is your nostalgia station and in keeping with our vintage status we broadcast on the AM frequency, which was all that was available in New Zealand before FM was introduced.
We operate from the Tauranga Historic Village and our volunteers welcome requests and chats to let us know you are listening and enjoying the unique programmes each volunteer announcer compiles. We play vinyl records mostly and have the fourth largest collection of nostalgic music in New Zealand which have been donated to Village Radio from Tauranga residents.
We broadcast daily and if you have a special preference check out the 'Programme Section' on the Home Page for the particular genre you prefer. Apart from these, the music goes round and round with nostalgic recordings from the 20's to the 80's each day for your pleasure.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
To operate as a working museum bringing enjoyable, varied, musical programmes from bygone days in accordance with our Radio License/Charter.
