Terry Spence is just the best on Sunday Breakfast. Light classical music with style and substance, presented with a light touch. You have made a real contribution to my life, and I am sure to the lives of thousands of other listeners. All from our little radio station, staffed by volunteers and supported by donations. Capital Community Radio really is a virtuous circle - generous people sharing their talent, and building a stronger community.Thank you to Terry and Ann for getting out of bed on a cold morning.
Murray Cox, Perth, WA.
Love your program [Ian Hazelby] and humour!! Loved the zero to 80 quip! Keep up the good show!!
Gavin & Joan, Bull Creek
Hi Ian Hazelby and Michelle, Just gave my 100 bucks [to Radiothon]. Love your show Ian and all those crap jokes. I am an Irish guy listening to you from Amsterdam the Netherlands on the Internet. I will stay tuned in now till your programme finishes before I head off to bed at 3am. Ha ha don't take it personally - your show is sending this listener off to sleep. But thanks to your show I will head off to bed to dream that COVID restrictions are lifted and I'm back jogging around Scarborough again with earphones in my ear listening to Capital Community Radio...Keep up the great work.
Garrett McQuaid, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
What a superb choice of music this morning. I'll make sure I tune in every Sunday if it's the same presenter [Rod Culley].
I’ve discovered your radio station while being on the village bus with my elderly clients in Perth one month ago. Since then I start switching to your radio and my elderly clients really love it.
Sharon Seebaluck, Western Australia.
Great stuff - discovered you when painting the house in lock down. Keep up the brilliant musical selections.
Brad, Western Australia.
What a wonderful program today, Monday, 26 April. During Lockdown you have made my day a pleasant journey through Down Memory Lane from 6am on. Thank you Capital Radio. God bless you all.
Cecilia Brukwinski, Western Australia.
I just love your programme and have told all my elderly friends about it. I particularly love the songs and music from the 1940's and 50's. My mother would switch the wireless on every morning at 6-30 am and it didn't go off until 10-00pm.
June, Western Australia.
We listen most evenings, we turn off the tv and listen to Conrad.
Keith May, Kent, UK
Hi, Great radio! Just arrived in Perth, am on a hotel quarantine and got a lot of time to check out radio stations in the city. Yours is one of few that has the most positive Type of music. Good old times when truth, honour, meant something. And love had a proper meaning. Keep on Rolling.
Michal (42 years old), WA
Fantastic songs right now. Makes me so happy.
Weni Trihaju, WA
Music is great and makes the day go faster with old music of when I was a kid growing up. Even [though] we are in lockdown [we] keep playing the music of yesteryear. I listen from 7am till 1130pm.
Frank Stevens, WA
I found your station while visiting my son and his family during November to early February 2019. I'm so delighted to find I can tune in still now I'm back in Ireland! Thank you for lovely music and treasured memories. Stay safe everyone.
A Happy New Year to all of you and your listeners. Stay healthy!! Gisela and I listen to the Cruising programme during our breakfast daily.
I'd love to give your Thursday presenter Mick a huge well done. Has he presented on radio before joining you? He has a wonderful voice that is so easy to listen to. He seems very knowledgeable about all sorts of music trivia. I often learn new things about artists and songs each week. My favourite is his quote of the day. I also want to make special mention of the Australian content in his show. It is wonderful to listen to the great talent our country has produced!
Jo Paull and family, WA
I am a very avid radio listener however I am a relatively new listener to your station. I must say the Sunday nite 8pm to 10pm slot has one of the best presentation and the songs/music played are indeed fabulous. So ever since I stumbled on this ..... I have always been looking forward to that time slot and to drink in the 2 hours of great entertainment. A very big thank you to the presenter of this slot.
I lived in Hong Kong for many years and was glad when about 8 years ago I found your station on my new DAB radio. As I am now working from home I love the daytime (well nighttime progs for you!) Programmes. Thanks for keeping me sane and playing great music.
West Sussex, England
My partner and I found the Sunday 8pm show a few months ago and now we look forward to putting the lights out and the candles on at 8pm. We love to relax listening to the songs we heard our parents play when we weren't 52! It's become the most beautiful end to our weekend.
Wonderful choice of music today. Much appreciated.
I am a night courier,the highlight of my week is listening to Capital Country. The selection of music is just out of this world.
I love listening to Ian [Hasleby]’s program. He has such a great sense of humour. Love the various snippets such as stingers in his bathers!! Keep it up Ian and we love your music choice.
Gavin & Joan
We love Peter Solomon’s programme so much each Sunday - thank you to all who participate in putting the programme of wonderful music together for us each Sunday - it is a highlight of our week.
...I connect with and enjoy Capital Country (Wed 6 pm to 8). Country music seems to gather up the threads of our erratic lives and give it expression, so keep strong dear Colleen Hunter, you are a gem...
Capital Radio plays some of the very best music around. Thank you very much and keep up the good work. You are a fantastic organisation!! Best station in the world!
I'm so happy to have discovered Capital Community Radio. You have made driving to and from work lovely and Saturday and Sunday listening relaxing and fun. I hope everyone is doing well during these different health times.
Congratulations on that brilliant interview with Troy Simmonds.
Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou. The minute I turned on the radio and heard French songs, I hoped there would be something from Charles Trenet. I adore his songs.
Have to tell you - an astounding line up this morning, one fascinating tune into the next! Superbe! French theme a delight. It's a musical education - beats Classic FM hands down in my book at least!!
i would just like to say after listening to a lot of overseas radio channels, 101.7 has the best music with very friendly dj's. I'm in the philippines now retired but came from mosman park where i lived.
Wow. What a program. Thanks for some brilliant songs. Listening online from Hungary - missing WA but at least I can still reach you.
Lovely music Konrad, I've been tuned in all day, listening, great company, thnx.
I just wanted to say thankyou for your wonderful music. I am stuck in my car whilst my 2 babies are sleeping and I am loving the music you are playing today. I am a long time listener. The music always reminds me of my grandmother who passed away a few years ago. Keep up the good work.
A big thank you to all the announcers who have come back to work. It is great to hear all your voice's again. You all do a marvelous job every announcer gives out their great charm. Our best wishes to you all.
Margaret and Loxley.
Hi, I wish to express just how much I enjoyed your Anzac Day program on the radio. The letters from soldiers, nurses, etc. the songs and music, brought tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat. Your program was very heartwarming and I wish I could have recorded it. Is it possible to buy a copy of that Anzac program? I am a Senior and my memories go back a long way, to an era of so many unforgettable instances, which made your program so perfect for me to listen to and enjoy.
Thank you again, especially for all the effort you put into the recording on this very Special Anzac Day.
Thank you for all the beautiful and continuous music. It has so many times made me waltz or jive around the house during this enforced isolation. Never think your programs are not appreciated -and for those us who live alone Capital is always with us.
Just a note to say that I’ve always enjoyed your music, but at the moment with the continuous music, it’s just terrific. Thank you all so much.
Take care and stay safe.
a big shout out to your radio station and volunteers, I listen in whenever I'm driving and I really love the songs that are played, you all do an amazing job! As a young listener - sub 40 years you have a wonderful array of music that reminds me of childhood songs I listened to
All the best!!
Hey Y'all....I am enjoying the programme very much....we are in a scary time now....but am grateful to Y'all for live streaming all over the world Hey....I will always listen to Capital... it's an integral part of my life....I find comfort in the music....I was born January 1945....final days of WWII...but I heard stories from my Mother of how it was very comforting during the war to tune in the radio to listen to encouraging music....I'm not saying these times are as dire although we as a world are fighting an invisible enemy... the music live streaming from Capital Community radio is important to all listeners...a BIG thank you to all who are making this happen....
Thank you for your time....be safe over there....
...a faithful listener....
Grove, Oklahoma USA
[In response to a message apologising that our Presenters were no longer able to conduct live broadcasts because of the station management's concern for their health regarding Covid-19]No worries. I am enjoying the continuous music. Love your station but love it even more now.
27 March 2020
I am writing from Melbourne to express my appreciation to 101.7 for continuing to provide music in the absence of your volunteer announcers and producers. We miss the excellent announcers, but the ongoing music is a welcome substitute.
I understand the reasoning behind not having your announcers on the job. I am a volunteer at the MCG's Australian Sports Museum and we also have been told not to go to work (the Museum is in fact closed) until it is safe to resume normality.
With thanks Lionel, VICTORIA
26 March 2020
Thank you for continuing to play your fantastic music while the Coronavirus is on, we are stuck at home in self isolation but it's great listening to this wonderful music, we wake up with you and the radio is on all day long, we love it - many thanks
14 February 2020
Thank you for your great music.
Particularly Paul Redman's classics on Thursday evenings.
I phoned the other day and asked for some good old Gilbert & Sullivan.
Paul said that he'd play some next week, the 20th, I believe.
My grandfather was one of the original Doily Cart opera singers.
Cheers & kind regards, David, WA

I was very privileged (& absolutely delighted) to be awarded tickets for the Andre Rieu concert on Saturday last.
The Event Innaloo theatre was decadently comfortable & the concert was beyond outstanding.
The music evoked a gamut of emotions & there were many times when there were tears of joy at the breathtaking music, awe-inspiring talent & awesome & sublimely beautiful entertainment.
I was in heaven for every second of the 3 hours & on a high for many hours after.
Thank you so much.
31 January 2020
Absolutely loving the music this afternoon. A great selection to listen to while and relaxing with a coffee.
13 January 2020
Hello, I just wanted to say how much I enjoy this station.
I particularly love Peter Solomon's session on a Sunday afternoon and wait for it eagerly each weekend. It has such a wonderful selection of music which is so enjoyable and relaxing.
When I am away from WA, I try to get the session from my locations interstate and overseas.
Thank you to all your presenters.
The station is excellent.

Trish Edwards and her producer have run a great show tonight
10 December 2019
Mark, I would just like to comment on the Jazz show Mic Gooch did on Sunday 8th December 2019 I thought it was great. I think he deserves a payrise.
4 December 2019
Never miss the Tuesday/Thursday Capital Classics. Enjoy hearing different versions of old favourites. Many thanks to both presenters. [Never in my entire long life have I heard 'The Nutcracker sung!!!!!!!]

Have rediscovered Capitol. Absolutely love the music and everything about it. I use to listen to Curtain but it went all commercial and silly talk topics etc. I am a convert to you guys, just love it.what a pleasure to have your station to listen to.
26 November 2019
I have just shifted to Perth and trying to find 100.1 on my radio was impossible and then I hit on your channel .
What an amazing channel. I have heard songs I haven't heard in 55 years. No way am I changing channels in case I miss another great oldie. I am 73 and it makes me feel young again.
Thank you, thank you.
22 November 2019
My husband and I are visiting WA in our caravan and wherever we stay we make sure we can tune in because we love all the music you play. When we go home to Sydney we are going to try to tune in on our digital radio. I do hope we can continue to listen because we have enjoyed your station so much. Well done and a big thank you to all of you amazing volunteers.

Best country music station in Perth!
28 October 2019
Mick Gooch is the best thing since sliced bread, plays my kind of
sixties music, what vintage is he?
29 August 2019
I absolutely love Capital Radio, and you're the only station I listen to. I just had to say how lovely the new Thursday Breakfast Presenter is. I'm sorry I haven't caught his name, but he was on last Thursday the 22nd as well. Keep up the great work.
26 August 2019
I am thoroughly enjoying listening to Ian this morning. He wakes us up with a laugh and a smile.
25 August 2019
I am a regular listener to Capital Radio & would like to thank Conrad - wee small hours for his programme on Friday nights, the music he plays is terrific, very much to my taste & with little or no interruptions & a great radio voice (I actually phoned up last friday/sat 23rd but phone seemed to be in faxb mode!) I have an hours journey home every friday 11pm to midnight & some times when I get home I will sit in the car listening, the music is so good. Also Crusinb is my next favourite programme, thank you Capital & keep up the great work.
Yours Ronnie, WA

I just wanted to say thank you for your tremendous radio station. I am only 19 but I love older music and capital radio really hits the spot. Keep up the great job.
18 June 2019
Great radio station! You will never know how much we love and enjoy with all my
friends, who are all listening!
Do you know The Philippines share the same time zone As Perth, Western Australia?
Please sometimes, if you can, play Joni James songs (who is now 95+ years old) Thank you very much.
More power to your lovely and sweet radio station 101.7 FM Capital Community Radio.

Thank you for brightening my day with all the beautiful memories and music of my late dad's time it brings so many memories back to me of when I was a child and I would sit on my dad's lap and listen to his music with him and mum would give me an afternoon nap and I would fall asleep listening to Acker Bilk and all the wonderful music of the yesteryear.
10 May 2019
I have just recently come across your wonderful radio station playing all the just as wonderful golden songs of old I treasure and enjoy so much.Thankyou from the bottom of my heart.
28 April 2019
I listen to your station quite often, and I just wanted to say that the music this morning (I started listening around 8am) was fantastic. I really enjoyed it.
Keep up the great work.

WHAT A SUPER CHOICE OF MUSIC THIS MORNING. THANK YOU.
25 February 2019
I'm an under 60 listener and a bit of a station hopper, depending on whether there's too much talk/advertising going on. Over the last year I've listened to Curtin Radio quite a lot and flicked regularly over to Capital to listen in for a while. One of the things I enjoy about Capital is learning about recording artists I did not know about previously. Often, I hear a song on your station and then search for the artist on iTunes. This has been adding new dimensions to my playlists. On Sunday morning I was driving my son to tennis and listened in to Trish Edwards for the first time. She's marvellous on air, and as a result of her efforts I have now added Ella Mae Morse and Cat Edmonson to my collection. Thanks to Trish and all the volunteers who make Capital possible.
12 February 2019
Thankyou for a wonderful range of music everyday 7 days a week. Love all the presenters and thankyou for the effort you all make. I cannot express enough. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart.xx

Thank you for the great "olden days,: Tunes youve been playing 2/ 2.30. Today Monday. I enjoyed Nat King Cols, Connie frances ect on my long drive. top selection beautiful songs and velvet voices.
27 December 2018
The interview of Chip Harvey about his adventures as a Spitfire pilot was incredibly touching and interesting. Such an articulate 90+year old. Wow ! His memory was amazing.
The story was even more poignant when I related it to 2018. My grandson is 17 ,he is a mature 17 year old but is he ready to take on a role in a war, I doubt it. Yet Chip had already enlisted and was training as a pilot. My other grandson is 25 but Chip was already a veteran Spitfire pilot. Chip Harvey is an incredible, humble man who shared an incredible life story. Life is not merely about pop stars and millennials. We need to hear more about these amazing senior role models. Thank you for this wonderful interview.

Wishing everyone at Capital Community radio a Merry Christmas.... I LOVE THIS STATION

Hi, I was sent a link from one of your loyal Perth listeners and am listening to your broadcast, love your style of music, great program
13 November 2018
Tuning in to The Listening Post (as I do every week) and hearing the musical documentary tribute to the men who served in WWii in the form of a story of two best friends and their loved ones followed by the tribute to those who served in Vietnam and the recent conflicts in the Middle East. Most moving; have tears in my eyes. I'm one of the very first Baby Boomers (born Jan 46). My Dad was ineligible to serve in the Second World War because of health issues and he was unfairly sent a letter inside which was a single white feather. I didn't serve in "Nam"- my marble didn't come up but many of my mates did. They all came back... and those who saw action; shadows of the men who were originally recruited. programs like this touch me deeply - "but for the grace of God go I". Brilliant programming Capital.
13 November 2018
Fanastic radio station - plays the music we love to hear - seven days a week. Love Tony Howes programme on Saturday morning - great to keep up today with what is happening in WA
20 September 2018
Love the station and the presenters. Great variety.
18 September 2018
Wonderful cocktails with Steph tonight. The usual great music especially the French Quand on danseb by Gilbert ( I didn't get the surname). Keep it up.
11 September 2018
May I say thank you and congratulations. This morning music right through from 6am this morning and until now has been exceptional. Just a magic trip down memory lane.
My husband has Dementia, however he sings along to almost every song. Well done
9 September 2018

Have just changed a few months ago from Curtin Radio to Capital, this is my type of music. Love all the oldies that normally one never hears. Keep up the good work love the music and gossip. Car Bedroom Lounge and Kitchen all tuned in to Capital FM Radio
