It's our Birthday Today!

30th September 1995. How well do you remember it?

It was a Saturday.

Mariah Carey made chart history when she started an eight week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with 'Fantasy', making her the first female act to enter the chart in pole position.

Simply Red scored their first UK No.1 single when 'Fairground' started a four-week run at the top of the charts.

Here in South West Wales, Swansea Sound was celebrating a milestone birthday at 21 but it was also the day that The Wave started broadcasting at Midday! (Soundwave as it was then) ... 

Since then we've been serving you 24/7, keeping you company with good tunes and being there when you needed us the most (bad weather, travel issues) and of course, our amazing Cash for Kids appeals raising so much money for worthy charities serving our area.

Thank you SO MUCH for your continued support and helping us stay your number 1 station for South West Wales!
