Six station app brings Thai city of Pattaya closer

September 17, 2013

radiopattayaRadio Pattaya, based in the Thai beach resort of Pattaya, has launched a new six-station mobile app.

The company, which broadcasts to the city as Fabulous 103FM, has designed brand new online only stations for the project.

As well as Fabulous 103FM, the other channels are: Pattaya Radio 1 which plays today’s hits,  Radio 2 playing an 80s and 90s mix, Retro Radio for 60s and 70s lovers and Pattaya Love for a mix of contemporary romantic music.

Another Pattaya-based station Mix 88.5 has also been added to the app.

The android version is already available from Google and the iPhone version is expected to be released within a week.

Station Manager Tommy Dee told Asia Radio Today that they’ve spent a lot of time tweaking the sound quality of the app: “The sound is processed using an exclusive sound processing system designed to enhance the sound quality on low bandwidth transmissions and remove over-processing and distortion, which exists in much of the music of today, leaving it crystal clear to the ear.”

Pattaya is home to a large expatriate population from around the world, especially Europe, Australasia and North America.

But government regulations mean stations like Fabulous 103FM must operate on low power.

The station says that as more and more people listen via mobile and online, the app was “a logical step forward”.
