    Hi there. Expat living down here in San Diego. Enjoy listening to Tim Webster each day. Unfortunately Mr. Webster has a habit of cutting in before the actual song has finished. He just did it with Do The Hustle. There were a good 30 seconds left but he started talking over it. The songs are the reason we listen to 2CH Mr. Webster so please allow the song to finish. Many thanks. And speaking of The Hustle. Mr. Webster said he didn't know what Hustle was. Check out YouTube to see how you dance the Hustle. We were doing the dance in Sydney discos back in the 70s & it's still popular at weddings around the world - along with Tina Turner's Nutbush City Limits. Regards.

    Been listening to your station for well over 12 years, all the way from CANADA. You guys rules. We lost our beautiful station dating back in the early 60s. They played only classic rocks like your station

    The music is very good at 2CH, however I must admit the news service and traffic reports are woeful, you almost need an interpreter to translate what has been said.... SLOW DOWN.

    Never listen to any other station. ( but I must admit, 2GB is my favored news service. Sorry, but the news on 2CH is a shocker!)

    I'm a boomer, and IMO Tim Webster is your greatest asset. Lately 2CH has been playing KC and the Sunshine Band: "That's the way I like it". I can't fathom why your programmer (who is probably 30 something) selects the most REPETITIVE song in the world. It does my head in. I bet Tim also can't stand that song.

    As a Baby Boomer, the 2CH radio station's music is exactly what I need to take me back to my youth every day.

    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!

As a nod to 2CH's Christian roots, the station carries Christian announcements during most commercial breaks on Sundays, amongst its regular music programming and commercials.

Some of the Sunday Christian programming on 2CH include Sunday at 7.30 Morning Service Talk and Nightsong with Kel Richards at 8 pm, as well as a brief one minute.

Christian News Commentary from the NSW Council of Churches played following the news at 9am, 12 noon, 2 pm and 5 pm; its presenters include the Rev. Bob Smith, Rev. David Reay as well as the Anglican Deaconess Margaret Rodgers.

During the week, Edmonstone has a one-minute inspirational feature preceding the news at 4 am, with Smith's 60-second feature, Guideposts, heard before the news at 7 am and 3 pm.

The breakfast programme, 2CH Breakfast, began in early 2010 currently hosted by Gareth McCray, The Bob Rogers show remains the flagship program at 2CH with many celebrity interviews, cooking and lifestyle segments, competitions and giveaways. Afternoons and Drive consist of mainly music, with the announcer usually talking every four songs.

On Saturday nights Bob Rogers hosts Reminiscing 6pm-midnight, during his programme, focusing on artists and topics of the pre-rock era. Weekends usually consist of an All Music Weekend, a themed music weekend usually promoting a particular artist or music genre.
