Kirula 96.6 FM which is operated by the Maharaja's ceased their broadcasts as of last night and has been replaced by the test transmissions of a English Language channel. The still unnamed channel is presently testing on FM 96.6 and is broadcasting manly retro music indicating that it could possibly be a retro station that plays mainly 70's and 80's music.
There has been no indication regarding why the channel was closed down. However it seems that the resignation of channel head Kinsley, has played a part in it. The main reason for the closure we believe is the financial viability of the station. If a retro channel is launched this will be Maharaja's second attempt at english retro, the previous one which failed was later relaunched as YFM.
