Unforgettable Music & Affiliated Stations - RadioAuckland

Where you can hear us - See below - See LEFT pages also.

Firstly, this Site Belongs to Holiday Fm (see Tab Left) but I would like to dedicate these first few pages to Unforgettable music as without the society, most of, if not all of the below Radio Auckland stations along with a number of stations in other districts possibly would not exist today.  
It all began in 1997 when TodayFM closed and listeners vent their frustrations and anger on announcers and managers alike. With little more than a dream Former announcers Ray Mankelow and Errol Baker held a meeting in the grounds of the Auckland domain attended by some hundreds of people and the Unforgettable Music Society was formed. 
With funds from trusts and the help of a dedicated team of supporters Ray and Errol acquired time on 1593AM with the goal of Government providing an Auckland wide frequency for seniors. That goal has not yet been fulfilled and 1593AM transmission had to close, but since then the govenment (after submissions from us and others) legislated for Low power transmissions. 

A number of our members of the society have taken up this hobby at their own cost and share their music with the community, along with pooling of resources and non financial support from the Society. For those who want a deeper insight about our history, click onto our History Pages or Ray’s blog                                      > www.unforgettablemusic.blogspot.com
Our playlists include music from the 40's to present day. Ie: Ella to Elvis, Doris Day, Sinatra, Bennett and so much more. 
Each affiliated station has their own scheduled programme that includes 40's, to 70's and a little either side plus Lounge, Latin and Jazz.
Station managers/owners generally have to cover all the Financial costs or seek sponsorship, but with limited range on low power, little is forthcoming. 
Station Managers are free to join me for a page on this website as they choose and if you think you can help please feel free to contact them or the Unforgettable Music Society. 
To Listen in your area choose the Low powered FM station nearest to you.

"When the music plays, nothing else matters"

Unforgettable Music Club was formed in 1997 to promote the music of the mid 20th century. It is now known as The Unforgettable Music Society Inc'.
The music we play has significant differences to that heard on present stations. Mainstream radio has been reported as banal. We play from a library of 22,000 tracks (Most stations have only a small fraction of this figure)

We believe that a great percentage of ‘radio’ listeners are of the generation that grew up with it.
More & more of the younger group are now turning toward other electronic devices for personal entertainment. 
That makes competition between mainstream radio stations extremely competitive and yet, there are very few stations marketing toward the ‘senior’ set.

   Strange thinking as the advancing age of the Western population means the psychographics of adults 50+ are very attractive – while they represent just 25% of our population, they rank #1 in 50% of discretionary income and this senior group hold 76% of New Zealand’s wealth.

If you wish to become a member or would like more information about the Society,
please express your interest via email to the UMSI.


and I will forward on to the Secretary.
