When Gold FM launched back in September 1998, Sri Lankans from all walks of life were ecstatic about the presence of a radio station that played pure hits from yesteryear. The station has, not surprisingly grown into the island’s number 1 choice for retro music. News being an important part of anyone’s life, Gold FM’s dynamic news team is on the ball with hourly news highlights coupled with four main bulletins which are broadcast at 7.30AM, 12.30PM, 6.30PM and the round up at 8.30PM.
The morning is dominated by the experienced duo – Nilan and Tom Hart on the ‘Gold morning drive’, 6-10am, Monday to Thursday. The show is power packed with the best humour and the most music, news paper headlines, strange stories and even dedications to give anyone a perfect for their morning.
Next comes the charismatic Keiko with over 10 years of experience in the industry, she really mesmerizes her audience from 10 to 2pm on the “Gold request show” giving the listener the opportunity to request their favourite retro hit!
The smooth and laid back voice – Michael takes the wheel between 2PM and 5PM on the ‘afternoon breeze’. This RP specializes in dishing out the maximum music during your final couple of hours at work and gets you prepared to face the evening traffic with a smile!
