About 95bFM

In 1969 when students did crazy stuff, radio Bosom was born as a capping stunt. It was set up in a boat – which ran aground somewhere in Auckland's Waitemata harbour – and broadcast illegally on speakers around the Auckland University student union. Over the next few decades the Bosom morphed into the mighty 95bFM, a sizzling casserole of New Zealand music, news and views.

Like orange pith in your teeth, radio b is lodged firmly on the second floor of the former student union building at the University of Auckland. It’s run on the sounds, sweat and tantrums of volunteers (technical term: vollies), and a core full time crew. 95bFM is a compilation of dedicated people from all walks of musical genre and political opinion. This makes for a fiery world of independent news and views and Auckland’s most vibrant musical injection.

Mike Havoc wakes you for breakfast, along with his producer Adam. Matt Crawley, Gin, Tony tunes, Sean Grattan and Toni Cooper prove to be very capable of looking after your 2-4 weekday slot. An all star lineup of Hayley, Richie, Hayden and Matt & Chris crank the dial up to 11 from 4-7pm and look after you on that long drive home.

Dig a bit deeper than the good-looking b logo and you’ll find a wealth of knowledge on the 95bFM specialist music shows. Amongst many more, there’s the True School Hip Hop Show with Penfold and Mouli, Beat Freaks (breakbeats) with Timmy Schumacher, Stinky Grooves with Stinky Jim and the Rhythm Selection with former programme director Dubhead. Our DJs broadcast throughout Auckland and across the globe (via the Interweb) all day and night – even at two in the morning. These stunning individuals represent an abundance of on-air diversity.

95bFM has independent news and interviews, weekdays on the Wire at midday. This is brought to you, the people, by volunteer staff who research the news and ask the questions that cut through the rhetoric. What you get is information you won’t hear anywhere else, delivered in a style that doesn’t patronise.



95bFM offers listeners a shelter from the harshness of mainstream (crap) radio. The ads are fuckin' funny and the attitude is real. It’s the voice of the little guy or gal and the loudhailer of people who simply love good music. Give it a go. And not just once. Level 2, 34 Princes Street Auckland New Zealand
