WHO WE ARE
Magic 828am is the Cape’s hottest new radio station, broadcasting from the Mother City to the greater Western Cape region. The essential format of the station is one of commercially Classic Hit music dating from the 60s to the present, mixed with a little talk, sport, news and community information.
This is intended to appeal to the tastes and interests of most age, gender and race groups, within the broadcast reception area.
WHO LOVES TO LISTEN TO MAGIC 828 AM
Designed to appeal to a broader cosmopolitan audience, both male and female, young and old across all race groups, Magic 828 doesn’t just make the hits – “we play them”. Our format of ‘mainly music’ will resonate with every listener, from Constantia to Khayelitsha.
WHO CAN HEAR US
Magic 828am’s 25,000 watt Medium Wave transmitter is sited at the centre of a geographical triangle with Paarl, Durbanville & Malmesbury as the three centre points. This ensures a quality signal to all across the Western Cape. The signal is at its strongest all the way from Cape Town to Vredenburg, Ceres and Kleinmond but can be clearly heard as far as Still Bay and north of Vredendal.
AM, as a ground running signal, has the great advantage of being unaffected by the mountainous terrain, which notoriously plays havoc with FM signals around the Cape.
Not being restricted by ‘line of sight’ beacons, the AM signal has great reach. Magic’s 25 000 watt transmitter can, weather dependant, be heard as far as the Eastern Cape and Johannesburg using just a standard radio at home or in your car.
