When was the last time you opened up the radio app on your phone? Has your playlist taken precedence over the contemporary radio? Maybe it’s time you rethink it and start listening to morning radio. If you’re wondering where to start, here are the top morning radio shows in Nairobi that you can tune into.
6 am to 10 am
KISS 100.3 fm
Standing as one of the most popular shows on Radio, hosted by the controversial Kamene and Kibe, the show has quickly won a great share of love and loyal listenership over the few months of its existence. Kamene’s well-spoken personality and fluency on-air together with Kibe’s overly sarcastic tone on the show as they dissect everyday issues that Kenyans face from poor governance to relationship matters and everything in between.
Vybes Radio: 104.5
Although newly launched, this Reggae radio station has quickly earned popularity as one of the top radio stations in Kenya. Their morning drive show “Morning Vybez” hosted by Sheila Kwamboka and Brian Mbunde is a phenomenal show to tune into should you be an ardent Reggae listener. Featuring interviews from people every once in a while and cool debates and conversations that take place in between bursts of cool reggae music make the highlight of this morning show.
Radio Jambo: 97.5
This Swahili morning drive show hosted by Gidi (Joseph Ogidi Oyoo )and Ghost (Jacob Ghost Mulee) has easily become the love of majority Swahili speaking Kenyan populace. The show features a segment called “patanisho” a favorite among most of the show’s listeners. The segment tries to bridge the gap between lovers by giving them a chance to call and air their grievances and then the hosts try and resolve their differences amicably. The show bears this edgy and street feel that is very easy to relate to as a listener.
Maina Kageni and King’ang’i (Churchill Ndambuki of Churchill Show) give us a dose of banter each morning dissecting through matters of concern that pop up every day. From political content to relationship matters, which are the topics most people want to listen to. The radio duo who have been at it for more than a decade now continue to wow fans with their charismatic charm behind the microphone each morning.
Milele fm: 104.8
Alex Mwakideu and Felix Odiwuor aka Jalang’o man the airwaves on this show, every morning. The show invokes thought-provoking banter on matters life coupled up with Jalango’s unbeatable sense of humour. The segment of the show where callers call in and air their problems to Jalango aka ‘Daktari’ to which he offers solutions is probably this show’s funniest export.
Is this reason enough to start listening to the radio?
