Radio Polynesia celebrates 33 years of service


Radio Polynesia Ltd, today celebrates 33 years of service to our community and country. 

On September 29, 1989 my late father, Maposua Rudolf Keil launched the first FM radio station in Samoa – Radio Polynesia Ltd. 

We started with Magik 98.1 FM which was bilingual and operated primarily from Afiamalu.

Fast forward 33 years, we now have 5 radio stations under the Radio Polynesia umbrella, each catering to its own niche audience providing an array of options to choose from.

Magik 98.1 / 89.5 – Our Top 40 station targeting the youth with the latest music

Talofa FM 88.5/99.9/91.5 – A very popular station catering to our seasoned Samoan listeners here and abroad, playing old favourites from our local artists such as Golden Ali’I’s Punialav’a, Five Stars, Jerome Grey, Penina o le Tiafau to name a few, along with a wonderful mix of island music.

K-Lite FM 101.1 – Playing the Golden Oldies and favourites from artists such as Sir Jon Howard, Elvis Presley, Doris Day etc

Star FM – for our audience who enjoy a variety of music from the 70s, 80s, 90’s with a splash of 2000’s

Malo FM 105.3 – Our latest addition to the radio family, Malo FM focuses on airing music from our young and upcoming local artists and also music from our Pacific neighbours.

Embracing technological changes to constantly improve our service has always been one of our top priorities, and I am proud to say that not only does our frequency coverage reach most corners of Samoa, and we are also streaming online which makes our stations much more accessible now from wherever you are in the world. Our website keeps readers and listeners up to speed with the latest local news and is accessible for FREE.

We also have our Radio Polynesia app which can also be downloaded onto your device. 

We are blessed to have made it this far, and thank our Heavenly Father for giving us the willpower, determination and strength to keep serving our beloved listeners here in Samoa and abroad. 

I’d like to thank our wonderful clients and companies who have supported Radio Polynesia all these years, and for choosing to advertise with us. To our loyal listeners,  faafetai tele lava for tuning in, we appreciate you all. 

Last but not least, I’d like to thank my staff from on-air announcers to our office and admin, who work tirelessly day in and day out, to ensure that Radio Polynesia continues to deliver the best service 24 hours a day. 

May God Bless you all.
