All that fuss and palava and it's over so quickly, It's just the one day now isn't it? I can remember a time when we had the two full days for Christmas, boxing day was just like the big day again, with another lovely roast and perhaps visitors or visits and/or games for entertainment. Hardly any vehicles on the roads as well. Nowadays, boxing day means packed roads and shopping centres - Christmas is over and it's queues for the sales, I'm not in them though - I'm a grumpy old git!

OKay fm was unfortunately off air (line) from late Christmas eve to midday today (Monday) due to a remote systems error that was beyond our control. There was no technician available to fix it - understandably. These things happen from time to time regrettably and I would ask you to please accept our apologies. I was very annoyed because we re-capped the mixing board PSU last week with minimal disruption to service and I love listening to the weekend music.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Well, that's nearly another year over and I would just like to say a big THANK YOU to all our loyal listeners for the complimentary emails and for keeping us on our toes with requests - the feedback is much appreciated.

PLEASE NOTE! Engineering are carrying out some work over the Christmas break - this may result in brief disruption to our service from time to time. We are hoping to limit this to the occasional brief loss of audio in either the left or right channel (hopefully not both!) as we connect some new equipment - essentially we are re-capping our board's power supply unit, it hasn't been switched off for eighteen months and it is twenty two years old! So please be assured that it's our end not yours and apologies to those naughty people recording our music.

From the OKay fm team - have a fabulous Christmas and a very happy, healthy and wealthy New Year to everybody and keep on keeping the faith!
