Actually this morning's playlist reminds me of Dutch station Jamm FM, who play soul, funk, disco, boogie, RnB and some house. Another one I have saved as a favourite.

I'm pretty sure they must have got a good deal as they are broadcasting on DAB at 32kbps which is only half of most other stations and a quarter of BBC 1Xtra.

It is now but in 1989 it was on the cutting edge of then new type of rave acid house and house music

Pure's spot on...also like the fact 88:3 is still being used in the name...& Why not, it's crazy that being some 30 years on, us original listeners can remember each frequency our beloved transmitted on...can't remember who if any was on 88:3 before Centreforce myself...as for those who float the dial, you'll never get the loyalty badge !
Two bangers I've not heard to date on the station are French Kiss & Everything starts with an E . These were played every hour guaranteed back then ! Guess they have certain guidelines, saying that tho' I'm pretty sure both got into the Top 40, for what that is worth !
For me, it's been a whole week of reminiscing ...& It's all good !!

It's a great station but very often the same classic house tracks over and over again. And too much talk while a track is playing. Do it between the tracks not while the track is playing.

i kind of agree but pirate radio never operated like this.
It was all about the shouts and the dj chat but i kind of agree with what you are saying and i personally
think they will tone it up a little when the advertisers arrive

The ramsey n recki breakfast show was good today

Hope so. It's not a pirate anymore so a little bit more professional sounding is necessary.

Isn't the point of these small scale DAB stations is so they can carry on in a way that you don't get with mainstream legal radio?

I'm with Pure94. Centreforce returning has been like a breath of fresh air and I'm pleased they have retained the raw sound we associate with pirates. I'm also enjoying the chat. Thank you to everyone involved.
