Testimonial Archives 2013-2016

19 December 2016

There is too much chatting, Rock and Roll and Jazz for me and not enough "Golden Years of Radio" or Light Classical. But I love it otherwise. 

18 December 2016

I'm not a big jazz fan, but don't mind the 'big band sounds' with the singers, especially the lady singers in the 'easy' style. 50s and 60s is my era when I was a teenager. I'm just 70yrs now. 

11 December 2016

I love the radio station but wish they did an omnibus edition of the serial. I have been away for a week in Melbourne and missed the end of the serial. I am devastated.!! 

30 November 2016

Have just discovered Capital Radio and love it! It has introduced me to a whole new era of music beyond the pop tunes I grew up with (I'm 41). Love the unpretentious presenters.


27 November 2016

Live and listen in UK, but visit Perth twice a year so survey not really set out for me. Love the music and presentation. favourite prog is Sat 12:00 to 15:00. 

25 November 2016

21 November 2016

Announcers commentaries on the artists of those days and other features of the particular era are very much appreciated.

Very pleasant accident discovering your station today whilst in Perth for the day, reception came and went as far as Eneabba traveling back to Geraldton. I listened till there was nothing but a hiss. Any chance you could broadcast through Geraldton? Your station would be a hit here.Absolutely love it already, thank you.

Greetings from northern California! Really enjoy Capital Community Radio; your music is a lovely mix, and it's a thrill to be "time-traveling to tomorrow" while I listen at work — keeps me on my toes, calculating the time difference.

18 January 2016

Im a 28 year old belgian who just moved to Perth and is so happy she found a radio where a combination of her golden oldies is mixed with jazz and classical. Brings me right back to listening to vinyl with my dad! Great job guys!


16 October 2015

Listened to Curtin - got sick of them, listened to Classic Rock - got sick of them. Just started to listen to your station as of 16Oct15 - not sick of you yet ! Nice and relaxing so far !!!! A young 50 year old who likes Electric Blues but also other good old stuff.

15 October 2015

Just love the music. Also love that there's not too much talking between each piece. Basically it's music that I, at 65, can relate to. Thank you one and all.

7 October 2015

I was born in 1980 so pretty much all the music you play is from before I was born but I just love 50's - 70's. My mother corrupted me at a young age and I never recovered. Keep up the good work.

Hello! My name is Vitali and I want to say that I really love your radio. I listen to it every day online, at home and at work. DJs are always positive and they are able to lighten the mood, all rubrics are very interesting. And surely you have great music. It is always a pleasure to be with you on the same wavelength. And I would be very grateful if you send me an autograph from someone of DJs and some souvenir.

Dear Capital Radio
I have recently had to leave my husband in full-time care and have been feeling rather lonely after 62 years of married life. My sister-in-law told me to tune into 101.7 and I have been singing ever since! Thank you for keeping me company every day and keeping me constantly amazed and delighted to hear all the music I haven’t heard for years and years. This morning you played ’ Bach Goes to Town’. (Rang and thanked you). Songs from ‘Pyjama Game’ and even ‘Maresiedotes and Doeseadotes’ (? spelling).  
Can I say too that I really appreciate the old hymns played on Tuesday mornings, some of those I’ve not heard since I was a teenager. Loved Bev Shea this morning. I’ve had a lot to do with Sonshine FM 98.5 but they are catering for a much age than me now, and that’s OK, but I feel that I’m a part of the Capital family. I’ve loved radio since I was about 14, even had an audition with Radio 6PM in their studio in St. George’s Terrace with an announcer named Neville Dawson, but was too star-struck to do much more than stutter!
I could say more but you get the drift!
Wish I could say more than ‘thank you’.
Barb Mellor, Como

PS Bob Crosby and the Bobcats are favourites of mine

We drove home tonight (Sunday 1st Sep) from Perth to Northam.
Really enjoyed the music from about 4.30pm till 6.00pm.

Is there any way I can get a list of the material presented?

Kind regards

I am a very new listener, as I only discovered this station through changing TV stations and finding West TV, when we were in Perth last weekend. I just love the variety of music that is being played, but it is a shame that I can only receive it with my lap top, when I at home in Albany. Keep up the good work, as it is far better than the crash bang noise that we normally have to put up with on other stations.

Cheers Julian Price.

Hi   I’m living in Northampton  and find it great to listen to your music  while   working  on my computer, via the net A  great choice of music, 

Thanks, Tony

Hey blokes, I found your station while on hols in Perth over the last couple of weeks. I loved it! Now I am listening to you via the net while I play with my toys in the shed near Darwin in the NT.
Keep up the good work, we dont have any similar sort of stations up here.


20 May 2013

Congratulations on the new website. I enjoy listening to Capital 101/7 exclusively.

Thank you for putting music into my life. Well done.

Good Morning to you lovely people.

Our three sons live in Perth and my husband and I live in Cambridge in New Zealand.  We have absolutely nothing like your community radio here in NZ. so we listen to rustycogs from my computer all the time at home.

We miss our sons terribly so your radio station helps us feel a little closer to them.  We were over in Perth for one of the boy's weddings a few years ago.

How can I donate from over here.  Do please let me know.

My very kind wishes to you all, we just love your programme.

Very kind wishes,
Andrea, New Zealand

Dear capital radio,

As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself, and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend.

I have seen too many dear friends leave this world, too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes with aging.

Whose business is it, if I choose to read, or play, on the computer,until 4 AM, or sleep until noon? I will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 50, 60 &70's, and if I, at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love, I will. I will walk the beach, in a swim suit that is stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves, with abandon, if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the jet set. They, too, will get old. I know I am sometimes forgetful. But there again, some of life is just as well forgotten. And, I eventually remember the important things.

Sure, over the years, my heart has been broken. How can your heart not break, when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car? But, broken hearts are what give us strength, and understanding, and compassion. A heart never broken, is pristine, and sterile, and will never know the joy of being imperfect. I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have my hair turning gray, and to have my youthful laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my face.

So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn silver.

As you get older, it is easier to be positive. You care less about what other people think. I don't question myself anymore. I've even earned the right to be wrong.

So, I like being old. It has set me free. I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be. And I shall eat dessert every single day (if I feel like it).

Thanks for your music Capital Community Radio 101.7fm and making my ride enjoyable!

Cool website! Great music in some of the programmes, but 40+ is seventies and babyboomers... I wish your music would reflect that a bit more. Keep up the good work!
