It’s another key moment in the history of the ‘young’ station that in just a year has shaken up the South African commercial radio landscape with its catchy combination of the ‘best Old Skool and R&B’ music, complemented by some of the best DJs in the industry.

The partnership sees Hot 102.7FM take delivery of a fleet of five brand-new 2022 model Volkswagen vehicles, ranging from the Polo Hatch to the T-Cross and the Golf8 GTI, ensuring a nice spread of models for Strijdom Park VW and an eye-catching fleet of spanking-new branded cars for the radio station.

“This is an amazing partnership for Hot 102.7FM and a strategic one,” says managing director, Lloyd Madurai, “and it’s down to the fact that the vision of Strijdom Park Volkswagen aligns perfectly with our ethics and values. Further to that, the VW brand resonates deeply with our audience and I can’t wait to see these classy Hot 102.7FM ‘billboards’ winding their way through the Joburg traffic and taking our funky brand to the people of the city!”
