The The station's ratings fell, but improved when the transmitter was relocated to the Sky Tower from Change (In The House Of Flies) - Various - Channel Z The Best Of Vol.1 (CD) previous position on Waiheke Island and gained a higher-powered frequency. It also released a compilation of live recordings, Coleman Sessions: recorded live at York Street.
All the compilations featured New Zealand bands. It was created to replace alternative station Channel Z which had failed to deliver on its ratings. The initial station ran for around a year and was re-branded in July when legendary New Zealand music journalist Karyn Hay stepped in as General Manager with Andrew Fagan as music director. Then broadcasting minister Steve Maharey said the station had been granted the use of three FM frequencies for an initial period of one year, during which time it would work towards becoming a not-for-profit organisation.
As part of the agreement to use the frequencies, the station's brief was to be to significantly expand its content to include a greater range of New Zealand music. The new organizational structure for Kiwi FM was rather unusual: it was set up as a partnership between Government Ministries for Broadcasting and Economic Development and listed media company MediaWorks.
The new network was implemented in less than three months, launching on Change (In The House Of Flies) - Various - Channel Z The Best Of Vol.1 (CD) July with a number of respected staff members - including Opshop frontman Jason Kerrison, the Twitch lead vocalist Fleur Jack, former student radio breakfast hosts Wallace Chapman and Glenn 'Wammo' Williams, actress Danielle CormackBlindspott frontman Change (In The House Of Flies) - Various - Channel Z The Best Of Vol.1 (CD) Alexander, The Bads' vocalist Dianne Swann, and former Mockers and Lig frontman Andrew Fagan.
The international artists include alternative artists that don't normally get airplay on commercial radio, similar to the New Zealand music already played. The magazine was largely skeptical of the potential success of the website giving it as much chance of success as "a Pop Idol winner has at a second album deal". In the same issue Bradbury, who was at the time editor of Rip it Up, cited the need for a station such as channel Z to support the New Zealand music industry.
He claimed "Channel Z served an important role between the Student Radio Network and the commercial stations" and that with it gone "New Zealand music is going to find it a much harder place to get heard".
The petition has attracted over signatures, far short of its goal of 10, The show failed mostly due to the music being similar to the rest of the days music played on The Rock, and not adhering to Channel Z format. The show was canned a week before Christmas the same year. Both The Rock and Channel Z had come under the same ownership in when Channel Z owner Canwest purchased RadioWorks with all stations eventually falling under the same management umbrella. Modern day Radio Hauraki relaunched with a similar format to Channel Z in earlyplaying much of the alternative music originally played on the station.
