IT’S MOVING DAY!

We are (still) relocating the studios to the Mangaroa Valley! We will be off the air for a few days whilst we move our studios and gear from Papakowhai to Mangaroa.  Please accept our apologies for the silence, but we will be returning again soon to bring you the best in world-class indie rock, just as we have been for almost 20 years!  Beginning 22nd June.  Thank you for your patience.  The studio is operational but the FM & Internet broadcasts are still down. **UPDATE** 12/07/18 –  We are currently still working to get back on the air.   There have been a few roadblocks to provisioning services to the new studios, in spite of our booking the move months in advance, thanks Spark NZ and others! 🙁  Then if that wasn’t enough drama, limbs have fallen and taken out the telecom lines to the studio.  That requires another level of cat herding to get all of the moving parts working together. Good news!  The cats have been herded and it looks like we have a target date to be back on the air.  Tentatively we are scheduled to have all of the work completed by Wednesday 18/07/18 and we look to be back up and jamming the free world, one person at a time soon afterwards.  *fingers crossed*  **UPDATE** 23/07/2018 – We are back on the air!  Finally.  🙂 Please accept our humblest apologies and rest assured we WILL be back...

Happy Birthday andHow.FM!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! It was 19 years ago on 8th November 1998, that we started off on this wild & wicked ride that is andHow.FM! What a long, strange trip it’s been! Our commitment to remain commercial-free and independent has always kept us thinking outside the box, but we couldn’t have done it without all of you!  Special appreciation goes out to all of our listeners from over 150 countries all over the world! Thanks for listening and especially your gracious and generous support. Cheers to your ears from the guys & gals at andHow!...

No Facebook.  Bad.

No Facebook. Bad.

After over 5 years in its current form, the 107.5 andHow.FM Facebook page is persona-non-grata at Zuckerberg Hall. In spite of our numerous financial transactions with the social media feed’s attempt to turn a profit with our ads over the years.  As of 25th March 2016, our Facebook page has been taken down. There was no warning. No messages to advise of anything that required a review based on their convoluted, confusing, acceptable use policies. We were not aware of any questionable content and have extensively reviewed a RSS feed of our Facebook page post history and are still scratching our heads.  We still have had no communication from them, before or since this incident. One minute we were there, the next minute.  *POOF*!  Nothing. Nada. Nil. Nein. Nyet. This was a on-going and organic collective effort from our international on-air personalities and announcers such as Chris Munday,  Jeff Shelton, Marty Kuhrt aka. Marvin Hamster, Brian Blum, Jonathan L, Ola, Mark Copeland, Dennis the Menace and the indie music blog FEW Music.   A place where we could all regularly jointly promote our extraordinary passion for music with colorful and talented personalities, to create and maintain a platform for nurturing and developing the indie rock entity, that after 17 years is simply known as andHow.FM. We have submitted the standard “what the hell is going on here?” messages via their “Report an Issue” support portals.  Which you can do yourself, any little support certainly couldn’t hurt our efforts for reinstatement.   You can click here and have your say! The original URL of the page – https://www.facebook.com/107.5andhow We are expectedly a bit disappointed in their draconian efforts to do something so heavy-handed, based on a dogma that is completely unknown to us or anyone else at this stage.  This is especially disturbing because we were also long time paying customers of Facebook Ads as well.   But in spite of the perceived setback, we are still jamming the free world, one person at a time since 1998. P.S.  We are still alive and well on Twitter for those of you who are so inclined.  Be indie, Reverend...
