MaranuiFM is a school run radio station. It is based in Lyall Bay School in Wellington. It broadcasts on 106.7 FM 24/7 and streams live over the internet. MaranuiFM has been broadcasting since 2008.
All our announcers, news reporters, interviewers, advertisers are either Year 5 or Year 6 students at Lyall Bay School.
Each year we have to apply for a position on the radio station. In 2015 there were over 50 applicants for positions.
Our studio is a small room in the senior part of the school.
Previously we were housed in an office off a classroom.
Where we are now is great because all the people walking along the corridor can stop and look in at us.
That's pretty cool.
We have been very lucky that a large number of the songs we play on MaranuiFM have been donated to use by other Radio Stations - "The Breeze" in Wellington and "Red Rocks Recording Studios"
The music that we play is middle of the road music - from the 1940s - 2000s
