    Hey guys, been thinking about this for a really long time now. Ive been reading online on how to setup up internet radio sites and all that, and im really keen on getting one up for DnbForum. Think itd be a really nice addition to the forum.

    Have it run thursday-sunday 8pm-12am with a rotation of chosen djs.

    PLUS thebrakedown.com isnt really getting any use to it whatsoever and id like that to change. Im currently revamping it to make it easier to access and make the podcast a lot more prominent on there.


    If we cant setup a radio for the forum i think its still an idea to think about maybe, instead have a rotation of djs do 30 minute mixes and hand them in each week and i put them up on thursday-sunday and there available to listen to from 8pm.

    Just something to think about , anyone thats running a radio or plays on one that wants to help or give me advice and just tell me what you guys think would be sweet.

    Ive just emailed stu and mike to see what they can do to help.

    Merry christmas guys!

    Good idea, would you have it so chosen dj's had a set slot all the time, or could dj's apply to play maybe once a month on a free slot?

    The reason i ask is that ive done a fixed radio slot before and because of my work i couldnt hold it down every week, so would be good if each week there was different line ups.

    think it was something to do with servers/cost, 1000 other internet radio stations, making sure it was all run properly, and the whole thing of tying it in with the dnbforum brand. or something along those lines. there was a thread but i can't find it :-/

    edit - found it >> special place

    A long time ago in a galaxy not that far away......


    There was one. Not sure what happened with it. It was here when I first signed up to the site and you could make track requests and stuff.

    I think it's a wicked idea. Mind you you'd probably have to rotate who was on each week so it could reliably run.

    to be honest with you im not really concerned about dj slots for now its more of
    what do needs to be bought for this to happen, as we already got a domain name, with a bit of hosting. I need help with that , if anyone can clue me in.

    there used to be one.. it was a link through dnbradio.com ... Dunno what happened to it, used to be a widget in the top right corner with the site player in it, and as Adam stated you used to be able to make request. I spoke to Stu about it once, who I believe sometimes still plays on the site and he said it wasnt his just a collab, so dunno what happened since.

    I would love involvment in a net radio station and can front cost, I'll put £50 a month, to get it up and running, but I would like my own space on the site for my archive and do away with my soundcloud which cost similiar.. Lemme know what you think, as although I can pay I have no knowledge also.
