Well I voted a ‘no’ here, but having read the thread I wouldn’t object to a few idents and/or promos. As long as they were discreet, of course, not slashed over the top of the music at exact 15 minute intervals as some stations do 🙁 But I know our DJs wouldn’t do that to their own mixes :-))))
Nowt wrong with a bit of banter and interacting with the chat room either. It makes it even more fun to be part of it as it goes out – since we can’t see you behind the decks as we could at a party raaa . However it’s also a bit distracting when I listen to downloaded sets from a couple of years ago, cos it seems as though some folk used to talk more than they played in those days !! :omg: 😉
Go for it guys. Just be discreet and go with the flow, is all I’d ask :weee:May 12, 2007 at 10:20 am #1104246priv8greenParticipant

nah, this usually either happens with some more commercially minded FM pirates for whom money making is a big part of the game (i.e the UK Garage crew), or in legal stations (including some online broadcasters) it comes from a centrally operated computer system that the DJ/s presenters do not have any control over…
AFAIK PV radio does not have such a system in place.
Plus the “smashy and nicey” style of presentation (which ironically some urban/underground dance stations do tend to slip into!) has never been very popular here.
However I got a leaflet with my telephone bill, in which was an advert for a device that looked like a “ghetto blaster/boombox” but picked up internet radio from a WLAN or played MP3s.
At present it was a bit pricey at £150 but I can see these devices dropping in price. They are clearly intended for times when you wish to the music away from a conventional PC and therefore are unlikely to have access to the chatroom.
I think in the next few months/years it is definitely going to be worth having some form of on-air identity as people start to listen to internet radio through this sort of equipment..May 12, 2007 at 9:15 pm #1104215Anonymous
Is there an internet surfing fee for a radio that picks up internet radio?
And why doesn’t it just pick up other stuff if the internet connection with the receiver is free?May 13, 2007 at 11:26 pm #1104226SdZParticipantideosphere wrote:I think it would be great to get some proper partyvibe/djshow/lv1 jingles together. Got a couple ideas and I’ll try and get round to something soon 😉 Could they be set to play randomly in between the mp3 streams? :bounce_fl
Yes this is totally possible. You can have randomly between streams or as an intro i.e. played as soon as you connect before the show starts.Space Master wrote:Is there an internet surfing fee for a radio that picks up internet radio?

They usually work by connecting to your home wireless network to a directory of stations maintained by the manufacturers. Ive got all L1 & PV streams listed in all the ones i can find. 😉May 13, 2007 at 11:39 pm #1104241Ill HorseParticipant
u listen to the radio to hear music
the best station would be one with no talking. IMO raaaMay 14, 2007 at 2:50 pm #1104238KensakenParticipant
Personally im not a massive fan of talking over the set, an introduction and a goodbye is ok, but i find it breaks up the music a bit having someone talk over it. I dont mind a TALENTED mc (not some fucking idiot talking shit for ages), because they know what theyre doin, but generally i dont like talking. (i do love samples saying something simple like “motherfucker” or “You got knocked the fuck out….BIATCH!!!”raaa or something like that.)February 21, 2014 at 9:49 am #1104247Dr BunsenParticipant
I quite like DJs chatting during their shows. Not MCs at a venue unless they’re fucking brilliant at what they do and it’s the right kind of music mind.
