The Official Drive

LOTUS FM  |  Podcast , ±7 min episodes every 2 days  |  Broadcast schedule  | 
An entertaining and informative show. ‘The Official Drive’ makes for easy listening during that ‘traffic-jammed’ drive home from work.

The show offers a variety of music genres (classic & brand new), frequent news highlights, weather and traffic updates, local event talk and quirky happenings from across the globe.

The show is styled along the lines of a cultural melting-pot where a little bit of everything reflecting ‘cultural diversity’ is offered to
bring listeners closer together.
