If you’ve recently tuned in to Play 99.6 and panicked because you didn't hear the chirpy voices of Lee McGrath and friends, don’t fret.

The popular radio station has moved its frequency from 99.6 FM to 99.5 FM.

They haven’t changed their tune, just the frequency. So you can still kick back, relax and get through the day by blasting your favourite beats, courtesy of Jordan’s number one hit music station.

McGrath, who assumed the position of station GM five months ago, told Roya News English that the change took place because “too many cars couldn’t receive an even-number frequency.”

“The market is dynamic and the world is rapidly changing, so we’re broadcasting on our new frequency of 99.5 to make us accessible on every car in Jordan.”

Play FM has been hitting the right note with the country’s residents since it was born as Jordan’s first privately-owned English-speaking radio station in 2004.

Today, hundreds of thousands of listeners use Play to keep them company, whether it’s waking up with the Big Breakfast Show (6:30am-10am), going home with the Drive Back Show (3pm-7pm), or just tuning in for some good vibes.

You can livestream Play’s shows and music from their website, and keep up-to-date with their latest news, competitions and more on their Facebook, InstagramTwitter and YouTube accounts.
