Fine Music Radio have announced that they are now available on the DStv audio channel 838. At the touch of a button, listeners from around Africa will be able to enjoy cool classics and smooth jazz. As the only classical and jazz music station in the Western Cape, Fine Music Radio is peerless.

Station Manager at Fine Music Radio, Mark Jennings said: “We’re thrilled to be on DStv. It really opens up the airways for more people to experience the magic of music that brings calm in chaos and restores the human spirit.”

Fine Music Radio is committed to delivering the very best listening experience from outside broadcasts, compelling content and social initiatives. The classical music selection is melodic and non-raucous appealing to a wide audience without compromising on integrity. Fine Music Radio’s jazz is a mix between mainstream smooth and classic soul.

As a community radio station, Fine Music Radio is mindful that their mandate is to serve the community not only with music, but also upliftment. FMR listeners are motivated to make a difference. So far this year, Fine Music Radio has been involved in a number of community initiatives:

·         MusicWorks: This is a non-profit organisation that offers music therapy to children in dire need. In celebration of Fine Music Radio’s 23rd birthday, listeners were asked to donate R200 for one music therapy session per child. In a month over R77,000 was raised.

·         Strictly Water: Fine Music Radio appealed to their listeners to help raise R30,000 for an alternative water system for Zama Dance school in Gugulethu. Although they reached target in just three days, listeners still insisted on giving donations which totalled R52,300.

·         Mandela Day 2018: In celebration of Nelson Mandela’s centenary, Artscape foyer was electrified with energy and passion as volunteers packed snack boxes for Peninsula School Feeding’s after school programme. It was a creative collective, organized by Fine Music Radio with employees from Artscape, musicians, ballet dancers, opera singers and Fine Music Radio listeners.

Fine Music Radio is available to DStv Family, Compact, Compact Plus and Premium customers.
