At midday this Sunday the mighty Kool FM returns to the airwaves!
Since December 2022 Kool has been off air following the departure of Eastman, the stations founder & long standing manager. In January it was announced that the station had been acquired by none other than bass music mogul Geeneus & the team behind the infamous Rinse FM.
Over the past few weeks the Kool FM socials have teased an updated new red & black logo, some classic mixes from the stations pirate radio history featuring the likes of DJ Rap, Andy C, Pressure X & Mampi Swift, Marly Marl & DJ Kane, plus some talking head videos featuring Kool alumni Brockie & DJ Ron telling stories of the stations 30 year heritage.
