Capital 101.7FM Perth

I have been listening to the TuneIn app on my iPad again in recent days. Found some new radio stations transmitting on the Internet; also discovered that some radio stations have been removed from my list of saved stations.

There was one such new station from Perth in Western Australia that I tuned in out of curiosity, calling itself Capital 101.7FM. It played music from the 1940s till the 1960s. Possibly the music went back earlier than the 1940s, but I'm not certain.

I love listening to this radio station. It brought back memories of listening to the old Radio RAAF Butterworth (RRB) station on the 1445kHz dial on the AM radio band in the 1960s to 1980s. Oldies music, but definitely clearer and devoid of radio static. But what made my day were the presenters' often flat delivery. Really, sometimes still so similar to RRB's bunch of amateur radio presenters back then. I guess many things still haven't changed despite the decades. Haha...

I listen to gold 104.3FM through internet. Songs selection more to Radio RAAF Butterworth in the 70s and 80s.
