OFM celebrates the best of pop in Poptober

Every Wednesday, OFM will put these iconic songs on our playlist and encourage our listeners to share their music memories. From 8am to 6pm a pop double play will feature on OFM’s playlist once every hour along with a fun fact about the songs. Lucky listeners, who share their pop music memories also stand a chance to win R1,000 on Wednesdays during the Poptober playout.

Says Lindiwe Mtwentula, OFM marketing manager: “Pop music originated in the 1950s in the United States and United Kingdom. To this day, it remains the most commercial and most accessible of all the music genres. From Michael Jackson to Maroon 5, Carly Simon to Christina Aguilera, Shania Twain to Ed Sheeran – we love them all and we will play their music this month! Tune in, dance to the beat and win yourself some cash in the process.”
