  • M.A.D. DJ Services

    Here's a great Concept from M.A.D. FM.

    Like the idea of having a DJ at your party but don't like the costs and hassles?...

    You know the ones, like the DJ wants you to pay them hundreds, then turns up, spends most of their time chatting to your guests, eating your food, and drinking your drink, rather than working, then expects full payment, and didn't even really play what you wanted or follow your guidelines.

    Well, we have the answer - M.A.D. FM Party Streams.

    Option 1: M.A.D. Jukebox.

    For just $100USD, M.A.D. FM will run a 2hr personalised show for your party, any time!

    That's right, you tell us the style you want, give us some must play songs, and we'll handle the rest. Hook into our internet stream, pipe it through your stereo, and at the selected date and time, we'll run a show for you from our New Zealand Studios. (Shows to a maximum length of 4 hrs can be done, for an extra charge).

    Option 2: M.A.D. Party DJ

    For an additional $100USD, we provide all of the services in Option 1, plus a Live DJ

    That gives you fully live mixed music, commentary and announcements. For a total charge of $200USD. We can cater for most styles of music, except Top40 Commercial Pop, Hip-hop and R and B, and the Service Extends World-Wide!

    How to Book M.A.D. DJ Services.

    Tell us your country and time zone, and we'll work out a NZ start date and time for your personal show....

    Here, you will find a complete list of our weekly show schedule. The schedule includes both live and recorded shows.

    Please note, all show start times are quoted in local New Zealand time. New Zealand is 12 hours ahead of GMT during the Southern Hemisphere winter and 13 hours ahead during our summertime. So please adjust for your local time offset. e.g. New Zealand is 12 hours ahead of Great Britain, so a show scheduled to run at 8 am Friday, will start at 8 pm Thursday local time. - Easy when you get the hang of it!

  • The History of M.A.D.

    Here's a brief history in time.

    We've have been heavily involved in the Music and entertainment industries over the last 20 years and formulated the concept for M.A.D. FM over a bottle of wine late one Friday night, during a philosophical discussion about broadcasting and its place in the local community.

    Drew has several years experience in underground radio, has a passion for music and also has extensive experience as a Club DJ in New Zealand. Melanie previously operated a very successful private music company in New Zealand and Australia and has a wealth of organisational and technical talent.

    What we are trying to achieve with M.A.D.

    With a hand-picked selection of local and international show hosts and an eclectic selection of music we want to bring some real diversity into online music.
    Our aim is to provide a musical variety that you will not find on any other station.

    Start Small, Think Big!

    Originally, we launched with a single live show, 2 playlists, and a 50 listener streaming limit using a small hosting service of dubious reliability. Now, in 2015, we've re-branded, added new mobile apps for both Apple and Android platforms, moved our streaming services to Europe, and can now support unlimited listeners - M.A.D.!

    Top Quality Sound, always.

    The Station is fully equipped with a state of the art custom built transmitter and broadcasts in full stereo and via the internet at CD Audio quality. All music transmissions run through the very latest equipment, so you can expect high quality sound, consistently!

    It's all about Diversity through Music!
