Galaxy spreads to Fareham

Galaxy has arrived on the south coast of England much to the displeasure of the more vocal members of Power FM's facebook group. Galaxy replaced 20-year old Power FM on 103.2 MHz on Friday night.

The changeover featured a short montage of old Power FM jingles and air checks, then songs by Alex Party and Pink played to welcome the new brand.

[link=]Messages[/link] such as "This galaxy is rubbish. i don't want to know what's happening around the country, only local. Bring back power!!!!!!" and "Why on earth do I want to know whats happening in the clubbing scene in Newcastle?".

Some listeners have already picked up on the extra networking, saying: "I couldn't careless wot the station is called, wot I want to here is prgramming coming from our studio's in Fareham."

Comments aren't as bad on the new [link=]Galaxy South Coast Facebook page[/link], but it still attracts comments such as "Erm, so far don't like tonight's broadcasting…. why do I want to know about night clubs in Newcastle wen I'm in Southampton….. This is suppose to be local radio…..!!!!!!!!!!!"
