In September/October 1993 Radio Vaal broadcasted live from the Vaal show grounds for 3 weeks on a temporary broadcasting license. The purpose of this broadcast was to test the water to see how effective a radio station in the Vaal Triangle would be. The results are clear.
Since October 1993 the brains behind the station worked on a continuous basis to secure a permanent radio station for the Vaal Triangle.A broadcasting license was granted in April 1995 and 90.6FM was born and subsequently started broadcasting on the 1st of August 1995.We are a community radio station which sells advertising to sustain itself and all profits are ploughed back into the community via charities.90.6FM is controlled by a board of directors, elected from their members.
