108.0 Southern Sound FM

Post by teckniqs » Thu Jan 16, 2020 12:01 pm

Picking this up this morning at home, almost cystal clear with a little noise. Sounds like back to back 80s/90s hits.

..... Anyone else getting this?

Can get this about 14dB on portable radio in the back garden facing east towards Brighton, but nothing at all round the front of the house facing west.

Southern Sound was an ILR station in Brighton in the 80s.

Jingles here - https://www.localradioarchive.co.uk/sou ... /audio.php - Jingles for package 4 (the US vocal version will be added sometime in the future) has the 'classic hits' tag-line heard in that vid you sent :)

Nice one for the links...
Just listened to the 1985 Timbo show on SoundCloud. Cringe central.

Just had a quick listen myself. Terrible. Laughing at that bloke who comes on the phone at 7:07 and sounds so fed up that it makes you wonder why he phoned up in the first place.

Tuned in around 10am on Thursday and there it was, by 3pm it was off again. Not heard it again since.
