Radio Bop - live

A station with a mind of its own

Radio BOP was first launched under the Bophuthatswana bantustan regime as an Urban Contemporary radio station that offered educational, entertainment and music content to its audience. It was the home and training grounds to many of today's radio personalities, leaving its clear stamp on the history of radio in South Africa.

After closing down in the early 2000s, Radio BOP resurfaced again in 2018 now as a digital commercial radio station live streaming globally. Its name no longer refers to Bophuthatswana but is rather an acronym for Beats Of Pleasure. 

Its line-up combines entertainment shows, news reports with weather and traffic updates, talk shows on current affairs and music shows with a dash of nostalgia where it plays the best urban music hits from the 60s onwards.
