I am a 78 year old retiree and have worked in finance, retail, managed service stations and in the late 60’s and early 70’s worked on air in Newcastle and Sydney Radio. The days of repetitious pop music. I would often try and slip in a light classical or operetta track. My sister introduced me to the classical scene with the Magic Flute. From then on I explored the classical music scene. What a wonderful way to relax. I still enjoy listening to music on vinyl long play records due to the sound quality on good equipment.
What does Fine Music 102.5 mean to you as a music lover?
Having a very large collection of Classical Vinyl and growing CD collection one is unable to add all the music on a wish list due to availability and cost.
This is where Fine Music 102.5 fills this need. The vast music collection of the station and I believe the volunteers, does not fail to fill and satisfy the need of hearing the more unique compositions and arrangements that are hidden away from retail music stores. I listen on both FM Stereo and Digital Radio and the sound quality is very fine.
Why do you donate to Fine Music 102.5?
I do not want to see such a wonderful radio station cease broadcasting or be forced to lower its standard through lack of funds. I only donate a little each week but feel it is helping the station and saving me money on trying to purchase the records or CD’s I would like but can still listen to through your station.
