SYDNEY FM radio station 101.7 WSFM has announced plans to release their 91-song archive as a collectors box set.
The classic rock station is famous for their “no repeat workday” – in which no song is repeated between 9am and 5pm.
However, every “no repeat workday” is a collection of the same songs, just in a different order.
In the week ending Sunday February 1, disc jockeys at the western Sydney broadcaster played “Blinded by the Light” by Manfred Mann 89 times over 7 days.
It’s a formula that’s worked for the flagship radio station, which has consistently out-rated the more “low-brow” radio stations such as FBi and Triple J.
One WFSM devotee from Richmond, in Sydney’s far-north-west, took the broadcasters Facebook page to praise their musical playlist.
“Are you guys reading my mind?” said Sharnee Pigeonfast, 24.
“How did you know that I wanted to listen to “Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac six times before I got to work?”
“Keep up the good stuff!” she wrote.
The 3-CD box set will be on store shelves just in time for Easter.
