LM Radio is a radio station based in Johannesburg, Gauteng and Maputo, Mozambique. Historically it was a shortwave station broadcasting to South Africa and Rhodesia from Lourenço Marques, the colonial era name of Maputo, hence the name “Lourenço Marques Radio” from 1936 to 1975 when it was shut down by the government of the then newly independent country.
After an absence of more than 34 years, a new LM Radio, opened in Maputo and Johannesburg. On Christmas Eve 2009, a voice that had last been heard on the airwaves three decades earlier returned with an emotion-filled announcement. “This is LM Radio, Mozambique’s English-language music station,” it said. “We are back after a break of 34 years. I’m Peter de Nobrega. I made the closing announcement on LM Radio on October 12 1975 and it gives me great pleasure to make the opening announcement on this historic day in 2009.” The broadcast licence was granted on 20 September 2010. It is Mozambique’s only English-language broadcaster. The station’s official name is “Lifetime Music Radio” and the slogan is “Happy Listening”. LM Radio broadcasts on 87.8 FM in Maputo and surrounding areas including Matola, on 87.8 FM in Ponta do Ouro, and on 702 kHz MW in Gauteng South Africa and on satellite in Southern Africa and webstreaming.
LM Radio is your happy music station, playing your lifetime memories all day everyday! Relax and enjoy your lifetime memories with a broad range of music from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s together with a blend of modern day music in the same style and flavour. The LM Radio project started in August 2005 with Chris Turner’s dream to bring high quality music radio back to Southern Africa. The original LM Radio which broadcast from 1936 to 1975 was an independant radio station that set the standard for music radio. It was the first commercial radio to broadcast on Short Waves and the first in Africa. Chris realised that the icon station had both tremendous brand value and also provided a professional model for music radio which would appeal to the more mature listener. In December 2009, LM Radio began a pilot broadcast on the transmitters of Radio Jovem. The station was such a huge success that Chris and his Mozambique partners applied in February 2010 for a permanent licence to broadcast to the people of Maputo, Matola and southern Mozambique.
