A Lush Goodbye

(Source: Facebook – Lush99.5)

After 13 years of operation, Singaporean indie music radio channel Lush 99.5FM has stopped transmission on 31st August 2017 (which was yesterday) at 11.59pm.

It played local music ranging from indie to pop, rock and alternative music, and previously occupied the 99.5 MHz frequency on the FM band.

The station was also known for their smart commercials back in the day, which poked fun at pop-culture horror movies, promoting their station with the tagline “Music changes the mood”.

Lush 99.5FM was launched after the frequency was awarded and acquired by Mediacorp in 2004, after its predecessor, Passion 99,5FM, closed down in 2003 due to a lack of sponsorship and advertising revenue.

In a Facebook post published on 17 July 2017 (which is a Monday afternoon at 3pm), the radio station acknowledged their fans and followers, while announcing that the local music it features will go forward as a project titled “Singapore Sounds”, which will be featured on other radio channels, and online.

Here’s the text of the post, in case you can’t see it:

Lush 99.5FM will be stopping transmission on 31st August at 1159pm after 13 years. Whilst we have built a loyal core of followers, the listeners, who are supporters of local music, we have not managed to grow the base of listeners enough to sustain the operating costs of the station. But we are as passionate as you are about local music so we have put in place the Singapore Sounds project, which will feature local music, artists and gigs on other music stations, 987 and 938LIVE, as well as on 8days.sg. We hope you’ll continue to show your support for the cause through these channels. In true form we’ll be celebrating all things local in the month of August so keep your ears and eyes peeled.

Lush99.5FM isn’t the first radio channel to retire from the scene in recent years.

Expat Radio XFM 96.3, formerly known as International Channel, was founded in 1998, targeted towards the expat community in Singapore, ceased operations in 2016.

SCOOT and tigerair Singapore were merging!

On 25 July 2017, Scoot and Tigerair will officially be merged as tigerair brand is coming into the Scoot brand. However, Scoot’s TZ-coded flight numbers will be replaced with tigerair’s TR-coded flight numbers. For more info on Scoot’s merger with tigerair, visit www.flyscoot.com/en/en-brandmerger.

Here are some tips from our writer:

  • If you’re travelling on Scoot on/or after 25 July, your Scoot flights will depart as scheduled, however the designator code TZ will be replaced with tigerair’s existing designator code TR. For example, if you were originally booked to travel on TZ 2062 from Singapore to Hong Kong, your new flight designator code will be TR 2062.
  • The Conditions of Carriage will be updated to reflect the new company information. All other aspects of the conditions, including fare rules and terms of booking will remain the same. In short, it’s business as usual.

Happy reading! Visit flyscoot.com to Scoot off to your next holiday.

Train services for North South/East West MRT Lines hit by delay

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TODAY: Train services throughout North South MRT Line and between Joo Koon and Tuas Link were hit by a series of delays, as therefore free regular bus services were activated. SMRT engineers went to investigate the matter. It was caused by heavy rain in the western, northern and southern side of Singapore today.

As I get home, train service on North South Line is delayed. Free regular bus service is available.
