2CH is a commercial radio station in Sydney, Australia, at 1170 kHz AM. It broadcasts an oldies format, and is aimed at an older age demographic. 2CH commenced broadcasting on 15 February 1932 on 1210 kHz. It moved to its current frequency of 1170 kHz in 1935.
Living in Wisconsin,USA — 2ch is like a breath of fresh air. Unlike boring stations here that are all the same. Songs are great, the mix is superb. That’s from a person that worked in radio for 20 years. I wish we had announcers like Tim Webster in the states. Great radio!
PLEASE PLEASE 2CH train your newsreaders to breathe properly. Taking a huge deep audible breath at the end of a sentence is unnecessary and incredibly annoying.
Just love it!!
Please keep 2CH about music and not about politics. Don't refer to "Wokeness"on your station, as this age demographic doesn't care and soon will switch off. Tim referred to songs that may be not Woke to play, which is insulting, as we all turned out ok. If woke was so real, they'd cancel Rap or heavy metal for their real sexist and violent lyrics.
Gone to 2UE. What have you guys done??? Just fobbed off your faithful listeners.
I use to listen to all 2ch programs day & night, but now all I get is talk back program & commercials!!! 2ch have fallen off the rails!!!! Goodbye 2ch!!!
