With an ‘alternative mainstream’ feel, the playlist is eclectic and mixes old-school with new-school tunes, and interviews with established and up-and-coming artists, all streaming from a sophisticated purpose-built studio in BurgerFuel’s Head Office.

Today, Radio BurgerFuel has become a creative platform to foster up and coming local talent through the station and BurgerFuel’s web and social channels, with international artists also submitting new tracks to debut in BurgerFuel stores. Radio BurgerFuel, keeping staff amped as they work their way through a shift and customers immersed in the total BurgerFuel experience while they eat.

NZ Music Month 2024 – Amplifying Aotearoa | Paorotia Aotearoa

AMA is proud to collaborate with NZ Music Month | Te Marama Puoro o Aotearoa, to āwhina and amplify local artists and their music. Now embedded in our cultural landscape, the month of May has grown from a period of encouraging radio to play more local tunes, to a 31-day celebration of homegrown talent across the length and breadth of the country.

This May we celebrate everyone who helps to amplify music from Aotearoa, and those who are the heartbeat of our music scene – emerging local talent and rising stars on the international stage, music fans going to local gigs and supporting their favourite artist, and those championing NZ music, taking our music across the motu and the world.
