DescriptionListen Live App for Irish based radio station OpenTempoFM
Non stop open genre music day and night.
OpenTempo FM is a weekend based Radio Station situated in the heart of Waterford city, bringing you a eclectic and appealing set of shows every weekend touching just about every Genre that Conventional Radio Stations Don't.
The station idea was conceived sometime in 2009 between Kurt J and Robbin G, One havin g experience in helping set up a local station, playing music, Gigs and Festivals, and the other having the experience in playing music, Gigs and Festivals.
Both being driven with a passion to entertain and provide a service that no other station was catering to.
The idea was not really taken seriously until around November 2011.
Basically like previous stations and people involved, we were sick of hearing all the radio stations both local and national playing the exact same songs as each other, dreary fist pumping auto-tone carbon copies of XFactor successors that's been generated by pressing a button on a computer.
The way we see it, that music isn't for everyone, personally, we have nothing against whatever you may call pop or chart music, its just something that doesn't appeal to us. Whats wrong with spicing things up and changing Genre from time to time? Giving locals a chance to get involved and develop their talents.
