It was cool meeting up with you yesterday!

Omani Jewel,
They DO have Omanis presenting: Rumaitha (a cool hip lady) everyday during the Lunch Break and Sami, a young Omani gentleman during "Oman Talents" on Friday evenings.

I thought the same as OJ when I only saw the names of unknown provincial British presenters via Dubai: HiFM all over again - talking to a small audience of British expatriate 18-25s with learning difficulties.

But...having heard the first couple of hours and seen how they are at least trying to approach things, it's OK. I mean, it's not great, and it's not what I would want to listen to. But the music is more varied than Hi, and after a shaky start I thought, it feels more competent than OFM while less generic than Hi.

My expectations were low, but have been exceeded so far anyway. Really, not bad. I was expecting to give them a panning but although it took an hour for Mr Fisher to wake up, by GCC standards it was a perfectly decent performance so far.

*Anon: "These guys are awesome"? Based on the content-light and error-strewn web page and one cautious debut show? I take it you're an employee, in which case here's a PR tip: If you're going to plant some "public opinion" at least make it look like it might be genuine. ;)

Music so far is definitely more varied, but the Fisher dude is sort of corny, if you ask me. It's nice though, to be able to flip to 3 (wow) English stations here now.
