What is the message of The Edge 105 FM?
Our slogan “your life, your music”, conveys our message pretty well. We carried out extensive market research for several years to find out what listeners really want from radio, then used the information we gathered to inform our music and programme offerings and set out to carve our niche in the media landscape.
You’ll find that everything we provide is not only relatable, but also designed to uplift, empower, inform and entertain you… all while celebrating the diversity and quality of Jamaica’s artistic talents and incomparable cultural influence worldwide.
What is the station’s vision?
In a nutshell, we want to spark change in a number of areas. Our aim is to celebrate reggae and, in so doing, provide a ray of hope to our listeners.
Whether through using the information we provide, which helps them to see things differently and apply this newfound knowledge to improve their quality of life; engage in and respect their culture more; or just have a safe space to come to each day where they can laugh, dance, connect, unwind and learn all about what’s happening.
The Edge 105 is being promoted as interactive and inventive radio, what does this mean?
We are indeed both of these things—inventive, because we’re the only media house in the Jamaican landscape playing the music we do; we’re entirely data-driven and we’re a themed station with a very specific focus and desired outcome, designed around our listeners’ needs and built on their feedback and engagement.
You can interact with us during shows while we’re live on air via our social media accounts, WhatsApp or calling in to the studio line directly; as well as submit your ideas and responses to us beforehand or after for us to integrate into the shows, or centre them.
Every programme is a conversation between host, listener and guest or consulting expert on the subject, so your voice is always part of every conversation we have.
So how can I interact with the hosts, submit suggestions or answer the sound off questions during the live shows?
You can call our studio lines directly to speak with the host live on air at 876-906-9559; send us a voice or text message on WhatsApp at 876-383-1166 [no calls on the WhatsApp line]; or e-mail us at [email protected] [this works much better in advance, rather than while the show is on air].
Will there be shows at nights and on weekends?
We’ll definitely be expanding our offerings as we continue to grow, so watch this space for more details.
