who are we?

The Cheese is a Low Power FM station, located in the gorgeous Hutt Valley! 

We play you the best Gen-X Music Variety, all day, every day! 

Our announcers love sharing their favourite music with you, as well as a few good yarns and local information, and we keep you up to date. 

The Cheese has been playing the best Gen-X hits for over 17 years, so we feel we know a thing or two about music! 

Donations are also a way you can help with our day to day costs and to ensure we can keep playing you the best music for generation x!
