Daily drives to work stuck in bumper to bumper traffic is everyone’s worst nightmare. But over many years of patience and tolerance, we have grown accustomed to this with multiple contributing factors. Topping our list would definitely be good radio! Whether you’re into more chatter or tunes, local morning radio shows got it covered to let you head off to work on a positive note.
As difficult as it is to find a pair of hosts with natural chemistry on air it’s even more difficult to make them stay in the same radio network! (you know what I mean).
So here’s our attempt to let everyone know who’s hosting what, where.
Yes FM- Morning FIX with D & A
Yes FM morning show has had quite a few transitions, but we feel like these two are here to stay. Hosted by Dominic Keller and Asanka Sahabandu every weekday from 7-10 am, their dynamic funny selves will keep you company, educate you on a range of current social topics and let you listen to some very interesting song choices too!
