What happened to Vicious Volume?
I am not exactly a fan of this station, I don't quite understand or appreciate it's format. Having an old soul in me, I can appreciate its sister station 94.2FM, one that I grew up with. However, one particular programme, Vicious Volume receives my vote for the hardest hitting programme on the Singaporean airwaves.
It started out as Rock, Ria, Rock. That's about the only programme here where you could tune in to listen to the latest rock and metal. Classic rock and metal also featured regularly in various languages. Believe me, language or skin colour is no barrier here.
I used to listen to this during NS. Whenever I was on guard duty on the day it aired, everyone would immediately turn up the volume of the radio, provided the RSM was not around.
Later it took on the name Vicious Volume, helmed by a bona fide metalhead with an honours degree. That show rocked even harder than before..sadly, after he got promoted, I started to hear less of the programme. I think it is no longer around now....what a pity.
