George FM started broadcasting in the spare bedroom of a flat in Grey Lynn, Auckland by Thane Kirby in 1998. The original pirate broadcaster on the Low Power FM Band, George FM was nurtured through it's infant years by a team of passionate volunteers, who helped shape and form it into the full featured radio station we have evolved into today.
At George FM, we pride ourselves on our unstructured music format. Our 75 presenters all arrive with a crate of their favourite tunes, and they have total control over the music they play. The result? An awesome collective library of over 1,000,000 tunes, with a total absence of high-rotate top 40 pop.
