Yoh. Tune Into Cape Town’s New and Online Radio Stations

The magic of radio is often forgotten. We're sharing some special new and established stations with you

Latest Update: 4 December 2018

NEW CAPE TOWN RADIO STATIONS

Let's start with unique and fresh. 

NEW UPCOMING LOCAL RADIO STATIONS: YOH Radio. 
Update 4 Dec: Yoh radio (hopefully) coming from 5 December 2018. 

This summer season Cape Town, and especially communities in Mitchells Plain and surrounds can look forward to its very own, locally-based community radio station. 



YOH Radio – the brainchild of radio veteran, Gavin Arends – has partnered with the Cape Flats YMCA (CF YMCA) with one goal in mind: uplift the communities of Mitchell’s Plain and the wider Cape Flats, and through facilitated action, improve their overall life experiences.

below quotes on the stations by Grant Jansen (from back in 2011 when he was with online radio station The Taxi)

567 Cape Talk

"It's Primedia Broadcasting, it doesn't get better than this, oh sorry, I forgot I don't work for them anymore..."

567am

Bush Radio 89.5fm
"Great community radio station, wide variety of shows, voices and music - reflecting the community it finds itself in. Every now and then I channel hop to their breakfast show with Victor J."

89.5fm

Fine Music Radio
"Not only classical, but some great jazz shows as well. These two genres are so deeply rooted in the Cape, I wish they'd consider changing, even a little bit, to move away from their current image and become more accessible to more people, they are a community radio station after all, many people don't know this and they themselves forget this."

101.3fm

Good Hope FM
"Started listening again to this frequency, some really happening shows on this station - love the content especially in the evening shows, not for everyone, but definitely speaks to a younger Cape audience."

Hout Bay: 94.1fm
Constantia Berg: 95.3fm
Franschhoek: 93.9fm
Paarl: 94.8fm

Sea Point: 96.7fm

Simonstown: 93.9fm
 Stellenbosch: 94.1fm
Table Mountain: 95.8fm
Tygerberg: 96.2fm


Heart 104.9
 
"This station has become rather controversial, but when most radio stations play similar music, and their hosts do and say similar things, I'd rather have a different kind of radio served up."

104.9fm

94.5 KFM
"If hit music is your thing and by that I'm not too sure what that means anyway, and you enjoy repeated play-listed tunes (after 1 week you'll know the lyrics) and you don't want the host to engage with you on a human level... Oh I forgot to mention, all the great giveaways (which is why you listen, right?) then I highly recommend KFM 94.5, oops, they've officially changed the name to 94.5 Kfm, don't forget that."

94.5fm

 

(NATION WIDE) SOUTH AFRICAN RADIO STATIONS

5fm
"One of the few stations who've moved on from what they were and developed a cutting edge brand that caters for their audience, whether you’re 'a youth' or young at heart."

City Centre: 89.0fm
Paarl: 88.5fm
Sea Point: 90.4fm

Simonstown: 87.6fm

Stellenbosch: 87.8fm

Table Mountain: 89.9fm
Tygerberg: 88.2fm

Metro FM
"Not sure what's going on here...but they still have some moments of greatness, just not sure at what times."

Sea Point: 91.7fm
Table Mountain: 88.6fm
Tygerberg: 93.0fm

Radio 2000
"Look, I'm not sure about 2000, but the one great thing about this station is that you can be sure if there's a big sports game going down, they‘ll broadcast it."

98.5fm

Radio Sonder Grense
"It may not be my thing, but these folks know how to produce good radio, you can't take that away from them."

101.5fm

SAfm
"Sjoe! It's a pity that you have a news and information station on the FM frequency, with aspirations of doing talk radio, but with one thing missing... I'm not going to insult anyone, so take a listen to the morning show yourself."

107.5fm

 

Radio is cool, but live music is cooler. Check out Cape Town’s jazz clubs and live jazz venues to keep on rocking.
