I got my new car charger for my iPod in the mail today so thought I’d test it out as we drove to pick up Stink from her drama class. I plugged it in, turned on the radio to the station it broadcasts on, selected my favourite Hip album and pressed play.
To hear Frank Sinatra.
I was a little surprised to say the least.
I checked the playlist. It definitely said ‘Poets’. Hmmm. I plugged, unplugged, checked I wasn’t playing a CD but Frank still kept on singing and I was perplexed.
It wasn’t until after the next song (Neil Diamond) before the mystery was solved.
DMG Radio Melbourne Pty Ltd is having a test broadcast on 91.5 – the frequency my iTrip is set to – prior to launching their new station next month. I’m very tempted to call them and register a problem.

I hear the new 91.5 station is going to appeal to the over 40 audience. I wouldn’t be surprised if it is a clone of existing over-40 targeted stations such as 3MP, Magic 693 or the old 3AK in its “Beautiful Music” days. And by the way DMG also owns Nova 100, and until the end of last year owned Star FM in Bendigo, Albury-Wodonga and Mildura. And don’t expect “no more than 2 ads in a row” on 91.5 when it starts proper.
You can change it, but I’d deleted all the required info from the pod. Took me a couple of minutes to download them again, sync up and reset to 91.7.
Does your iTrip need to remain on that one frequency? Can you change it, or is it set at the factory?
