Lush 99.5FM was the first English radio station in Singapore to be located in a shopping mall (Orchard Central #02-02),[4] and was also the first MediaCorp radio station to move out of Caldecott Hill on 20 August 2009. Lush 99.5FM's last day of tenancy at Orchard Central was 7 July 2012; the station has since moved back to Caldecott Hill. Lush 99.5FM moved again to the brand new Mediacorp Campus, Mediapolis @ one-north, on 17 January 2017.

Every week, various guest DJs would be invited on The Lush Mix, which airs on Saturdays from 8pm and repeats on weekdays from 9pm.

Lush 99.5FM has ceased transmission since 1 September 2017 as part of a rationalization of Mediacorp's network of radio stations.[5]
