HistoryEdit

Singapore Radio began in 1936 with stations each broadcasting in its four official languages - namely Radio One (English), Radio Two (Malay), Radio Three (Chinese) and Radio Four (Tamil). The then owner - Singapore Broadcasting Corporation - launched a revamp campaign and started several stations targeting different segments of the population. Perfect Ten 98.7 FM began in 1989 to play English hits for the youth, while its Chinese equivalent, YES 933 began broadcasting on 1 January 1990 at 09:33. The Malay equivalent, Ria 89.7FM began in December of the same year.

YES 933 began as an 18-hour station, broadcasting from 06:00 to 24:00. Broadcasting hours were extended to 02:00 in December of the same year, making it the first Chinese radio station to offer music after midnight. It finally went 24 hours on 1 May 1994.
