Other broadcast areas are Grabouw, Villiersdorp, Caledon, Hermanus, Gansbaai and Stellenbosch as well as selected areas of Cape Town including the northern and southern suburbs.

Our programming is geared for general appeal and consists of a mix of easy-listening music, regular news updates and a wide range of interesting and informative talk shows. Topics covered include travel, books, advice on financial, medical and legal matters, and motoring. It’s feel good radio that’s fun and friendly, but with a heart for the needs of the community and a passion for local music.

Broadcasting in English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa, 93.6FM is uniquely Helderberg, but with broad appeal, guaranteeing good company around the clock. The station acquired its broadcast license on July 1, 1995. It is owned by subscribers and run by a station manager acting on behalf of a board of trustees. A core team of staff is employed full-time while most of the wider network of some 50 presenters provide services on a voluntary basis.
