SAMOA’S RADIO POLYNESIA CELEBRATES 11TH YEAR, LAUNCHES NEW STATIONS

APIA, Samoa (October 1, 2000 - Samoa Observer/PINA Nius Online)---Radio Polynesia Ltd. celebrated two milestones during the weekend.

* It officially marked the 11th year of operation as Samoa's sole non-government commercial radio station.

* It launched two additional stations.

Magic FM on frequency 98.1 will continue with a program format of only Top 40 hits, K Lite FM on frequency 101.1 will provide a program format of easy listening music, and Talofa FM on frequency 96.1 will provide an all Samoan language and music program.

To mark the occasion, Radio Polynesia Ltd. organized a Market Day at the To‘oa Salamasina Hall.

More than 30 local businesses set up stalls in the hall and provided shoppers with a chance to experience a "Mall in a Hall" experience.

The Samoa Performing Arts Institute added a touch of class with the entertainment.

In doing so, they continued their quest for Samoa’s top performing artists with the Samoa National Talent Competition.

The popular New Zealand based Samoan band Jamoa Jam added the final touches with live performances to cap off the day.

Events were broadcast live on air not just on one, but on all three stations.
