FRS aims at providing a balanced 'diet' of music and information for as many listeners as possible. True Sunday entertainment on SW, that's what it is all about! We try to keep the programme standard as high as possible offering a wide variety of programmes presented by an experienced crew of deejays. This is a solid basis to achieve our goal. Besides, we hope that our programming greatly adds to maintain the listeners’ interest in Free Radio. Broadcasting on SW makes the world smaller and keeps the communication between all sorts of people going. Radio Format

FRSH programmes are primarily aimed at an audience in Central and Western Europe. For that reason our shows are presented in mainly English, a tiny little bit of Dutch and not to forget German: since the beginning FRS has always had a fairly large German following. We do play a wide variety of quality pop music emphasizing on rock covering the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s & 2000s. Current hits are rarely played, instead we try to play music which isn't heard that often on the radio stations these days. That doesn’t mean we don’t play new tracks! Programmes like the German Service, FRS Magazine & Radiowaves certainly pay attention to new tracks which mostly do not fit the catagory ‘hits’. In addition we try to keep the listeners well-informed in the world of (free) radio. Most SW listeners are people having a keen interest in (free) radio. For that reason we feel very strongly about providing radio news/ information. Remember one of our slogans: "a balance between music and information". FRS goes DX is informs the listeners about a wide range of radio and more specifically: free radio related items. Each programme contains, apart from the music, radio related items (see later). Of course we do appreciate listener’s input/ letters. In the past we ran a mailbox show (the ILLS), nowadays listener’s letters/ reports are handled in most FRS shows.
Programmes are presented by Jan van Dijk, Peter Verbruggen, Dave Scott, Paul Graham and last but not least Roger Davis. Bert van Leer returned in 2015 to the station after 28 years!

Listeners' mail is handled in all shows except FRS goes DX.
On special occasions such as Christmas/ December or anniversaries, FRS-Holland can (will) depart from its usual programme output.
