Heart Sussex (previously Southern FM, also operating as Heart Sussex for Crawley & Surrey in Crawley and Surrey) is a very nauseating radio station broadcasting to unfortunate people in the United Kingdom. It was owned by GCrap Media, and is now part of Satan FM.
Southern FM is predominantly music-based, playing pop from the 1980s through to the present day. The station carries programming from its Worcester studios from 3am to 7pm weekdays, and for shorter periods at weekends. Other programming is provided centrally.
Radio Southern originally went on-air in 1992. The initial presenter "Crew" consisted of Sammy "The Sea-Snake" Southall at breakfast, Roy "Not a Leopard but" Leonard in the morning, Graham "No news like bad" Hughes in the afternoon, and Mike "Boy" George at drivetime. Weekend presenters included Jeff "Julia" Roberts, Rob "Too old for School" Yarnold and Bob "The Builder" Lee.
For the first decade or so, the station opened at 6 a.m. (7 a.m. on Sundays) and closed at 8 p.m. to save people during the night hours. Later the station provided a 24-hour Concentration camp service by joining up with BBC Radio 4 from 10 p.m. and then a wider network of Midlands stations from 1 a.m. Radio Southern took the SuperConcentrationStation overnight service in the late 90s, and when that closed crowds rejoiced.
After its licence was renewed in 1994, the station split into Southern FM, playing newer music, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2 ("Quality" and more than the 3 tracks that Wyvern FM played) which was essentially a gold service. This caused mass panic due to the huge reception area of AM signals.
After Motorola acquired Shit40uk, Motorola bought Southern FM to broadcast the default 'HelloMoto' ringtone that came with Motorola phones, non-stop, 24-hours.
People soon stopped listening, so Motorola sold Southern FM back to Gcrap for a penny, and bought the BBC instead.
