Jacaranda FM has announced the return of its Only Local digital pop-up for Heritage Month 2022 in South Africa.
The pop-up station, which will showcase the very best of South African music across genres, launched on 1 September 2022 and will run until 30 September 2022.
What to expect
It will also feature interviews and other content that celebrate local heritage and talent, the radio station said in a statement on Thursday (1 September).
Listeners can expect the very best of South African pop, rock, R&B, hip-hop, gqom, amapiano and more. The digital station will stream 24/7 this Heritage Month on Jacaranda FM‘s website.
“Supporting local artists is part of our brand DNA. Our Friday Live local musician showcase on Breakfast with Martin Bester is so popular that a month-long spotlight on Mzansi’s best and up-and-coming talent plugs right into our offering of ‘More Music you Love’ for our listeners,” Jacaranda FM‘s Programme Manager Hennie Myburgh said.
Besides Only Local, Jacaranda FM is planning to launch more pop-up stations in the coming months “to connect with its community on an ongoing, themed basis.” They are aimed at complimenting its daily offering.
“Our listeners love a curated local music line-up, which is why we recently also launched The SA Music Show with Thabiso Khambule, a weekend show dedicated to playing to the best SA tunes,” Myburgh added.
“The Only Local pop-up station takes this concept and amplifies it digitally for a month when South Africans come together to celebrate all that makes us different and brings us together – through music, a common language we all value and celebrate collectively.”
