  1. Hi, great radio station, love your music. I listen to you from “the other side of the world”. I live in south Germany. 😃 keep on playing your music!
    Greetings from Germany and happy new year

  2. Great job with the station. Song selections are right on! Keep up the great work. Greetings from Ohio in the United States!

  3. Just found you yesterday, a very pleasant discovery. Brilliant music, minimum talk just what I like.
    Listening in the Yorkshire Dales in England. You have a new believer!

  4. hi ive been living in Gisborne for 6 months and found you guys whilst channel surfing on my car radio and i have to compliment you on a great job, great sounds and a great format ps. i tell everyone i meet about your station and im very suprised more locals dont know about you but by the time ive finished with them they do lol keep up the gpod work

    1. Hi Leonie

      Thanks for the compliment. The station has been going since 2011 on both FM (low power) and web so you can get it on all web devices including phones. You will be hearing a lot more about Spellbound shortly when we open a Record Store here in Gisborne. Watch out for The Spellbound Wax Company opening soon.

  5. I was in your radio-station/music-store yesterday Fri-20/07/2018. Very friendly atmosphere & great alternatives to the mainstream.

  6. Spellbound is the Home of the Blues in New Zealand. Not only do they play fabulous music but they support terrific artists. We are proud and please to be played on this premier station. Thank you, Deane. Love from Annee of Annee 2CU Blues Band – Titirangi, Auckland, NZ.

  7. Hi, my best wishes for the new year from Germany to the other side of the globe. By listening to your station I’ve found so many great artists I haven’t known before. Fewweeks ago I visited a concert of Ainsley Lister, who I heard on your station for the first time. Thanks a lot and keep on goin’…

  8. Hello from Germany
    thank you so much for becoming a part of the audience of your broadcast.
    The globalized world has brought us together.
    but it is so satisfying to note that not even big data monsters like shazam are capable of naming all the music you play.
    Getting to know Spellbound wax and gisborne might one day be the reason to travel to your beautiful country and say hello.
    until then i enjoy your music and am happy every morning about the surprise when switching on the radio.

    please remain infected!!!

Sweating like maniacs as they perform each song with their hearts out for all to see, The SunBears are not just another blues band…they will entertain you, make you move and most definitely make you love the blues!
