Rathlyn, HB, Jun 14 – The government has this afternoon donated a sum of money to an Internet radio station specialising in instrumental music.

The popular Seeburg1000.com radio station, which specialises in instrumental music produced by the Seeburg Corporation in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, is a popular station in Sirocco, with its music adopted for a variety of purposes.

Speaking to the Times a short time ago, Premier Daniel Anderson confirmed that earlier this afternoon, a total §7 7/5d (NZ$12.41, US$10.00) was donated to the station in appreciation for its high-quality music.

“Seeburg is Sirocco’s national music, so it is only fitting that we should thank a major supplier of our national sounds for its continued free access.” Anderson stated. “The government hopes that this donation can be used to help with running costs and ensure that the station never has to shut down.”

Anderson confirmed that the money originated from the Treasury and the final donation amount was signed off by him.

The Seeburg Corporation produced jukeboxes and music systems for stores, restaurants and factories until its demise in the 1980s. Seeburg music machines are today used for private enjoyment or used for Internet radio stations.

Micronationally, Seeburg is known for its rendition of Tony Pacino’s Come Prima, the theme tune to popular SBC animated comedy Micro High, which remained unidentified until earlier this year.
