The Top 40 is constantly played in various formats every morning between 6am and 10am on the breakfast show with DJ Grant, Monday to Friday. This is a very popular show with folks rising for work and school, including our National and Global listeners tuning in to the good sounds and expert guidance of DJ Grant. The following is growing by the day.

 NEW ZEALAND ON AIR music is intermingled with all sorts of wonderful tunes and popular hits played throughout the day that is commercially viable to local businesses extending through, to a more adult audience after 6pm thus, generating a wider age of interests in the music industry.

 GalaxyFM has speakers in the awnings of the C.B.D Kawerau, Jellicoe Court in conjunction with the local council which gives GalaxyFM a opportunity to be heard by the public that would normally not hear our station.

BREAKFAST SHOW - Sunday

Mountain View Rest Home Request Show is on Sunday mornings between 9am and 12noon. Mountain View submits a request sheet with all their information each week as the residents tend to change. This is for the older generation so they can ring the radio station and request a song.

You do not have to belong to the rest home to ring in. The show has a very large following both locally and on the web. DJ's Terinova and Grant host this section with a quirky twist on the classics offering to the delight of our older generation with a chance to relive memories and create new ones every week.


News & Sport

 

Inserted throughout the music is up-to-date local, national and international news via the internet.

We have a local member of the community, Koro Colin, who visits us on Fridays to tell everyone what sport events are happening around the area over the week and forth coming events over the weekend. He returns on Mondays to report the results and feedback. These segments are very engaging full of local and wider district sports and are informative and worth looking forward to.
