What a joke!!
Five Star for Classic Rock, but then, unbelievably, we had "The Day The Music Died- totally gutted now......Classic Rock Radio changed my life. When it went Digital, wow it changed my life even more, simply was awesome. I was obsessed with listening to it. The weekend morning fishing and money shows were an annoying interruption, the VFL was infuriating.......but all other times I would drive with it, work with it, shop with it, best of all, walk/run with it!! helped me lose 15kg cause I didn't want to go home, didn't want to miss out on the next tune.......now it's gone. just like that?? WHY??? Who Killed the music
After what seemed like an age of searching for a great classic rock station with Australian content, I finally stumble on this a few months ago and was loving it. Echoing the sentiments of everyone else who has commented here - you've totally and inexplicably ruined what was easily the best Aussie Classic Rock station around. To whoever the bright spark was behind this decision, thanks for nothing.
I must agree with the majority......this was a great rock station. My favourite with a great mix of rock music. Some songs which I haven't heard in 40 years! I only recently discovered it and have been listening to it since February, now it is gone. Have to find another one, which will be hard as no other station will compare.. Why did you get rid of it? Reading below, it appears it has become a sports station. There are too many of them now anyway.
What a load of crap, don't need another station with football, bring back the music. have just deleted the station from my car's DAB+ station list, and all other radios in the house.
it's called My Generation...and it's easy to find.
Colin, what is the station in NSW?
Horrible mistake only music station in Melbourne worth listening to im shattered.John,Melbourne.
There's enough bloody football on the radio, why the hell have you taken the best music away and replaced it with this? Do what you want because I won't be listening to it again
3MP began transmission 21 July 1976, as Melbourne's seventh commercial radio station and the city's first new commercial station in over 40 years. The original licensees included a consortium of businessmen and media identities.
In December 2009, existing operator Pacific Star Network and Macquarie Radio Network, the owner of top rating Sydney talkback radio station 2GB, agreed to create the joint-venture 'Melbourne Radio Operations Pty Ltd', to supply radio programming in the Melbourne market.
In April 2010, the two signed an interim agreement to launch a new talkback station MTR 1377 - replacing 3MP on 1377 kHz. The station was seen as a reboot of the failed 3AK Talk format, this time mostly Sydney based 2GB programming - to compete against incumbent 3AW.
Unfortunately for Macquarie Media and 2GB, the MTR Melbourne station achieved little listener traction, and struggled for both advertising support and listener interest throughout its short life.
In 2015, MyMP adopted the positioner of "Melbourne's greatest hits from the 60s, 70s & 80s", and in May reverted to the 3MP brand, last heard in 2010. In July, the newsroom shared between 3MP and sister station 1116 SEN was closed, replaced with a service from Macquarie National News.
Now playing on DAB+, and on 1377AM plying Greatest Hits from the 60's, 70's and 80's'.
