Day 126_2017 “Retropia” pre launch

Another week draws to a close, and a busy, and at sometimes frustrating one for AJK Radio.

I.T issues continued to plague the studio this week, so much so I went back to using Windows 7

My voice tracking presenters have had to suffer too, with RVT (remote voice tracking) being unavailable during the down time.

One a more positive note….

Leee John has recorded some voice overs for the station, and we’ve EXCLUSIVE pre launch play of the NEW album ‘Retropia”

To top all that, last wednesday I chatted to Leee for 45 minutes about music and the new album… as my first music interview, it didn’t have a dull fixed format of questions Leee has heard 1000 times before. in fact I came away as if I’d just caught up with an old friend.

Please do pre order the album, It is proper music, an album you will want to listen to time and time again.

For exclusive tracks from the album Leee is our “Artist on the Hour” throughout May, and the back catalougue of Leee’s work with Imagination is also showcased.

As always , thanks for listening, following and sharing

Day 119_2017 Not an Illusion

Been a busy few weeks since I last blogged.

I.T issues due to the station being online 24/7 that means the computers running the station have been giving me sleepless nights.

The Studio PC in particular haas been giving me problems of late however….

for the geeks amoung us, Broadcast Radio are working on V5 of their Myriad Playout software, we went live with a preview on the studio machine last week to overcome issues of V4 just conking out on us mid broadcast (compter related, not the software)

On a side not we have v4 working on a MAC!! via Parallels, and it’s more reliable than it’s windows counterpart (go figure)

Our latest presenter Paul Beavis goes from strength to strength with his show Weds 7-9pm (GMT)

The BIGGEST news is (drumroll please)

Leee John of Imagination has asked AJK Radio to promote his new album “Retropia” out on June 9th 2017

Listen out as Leee is our Artist on the Hour, EVERY hour for May, and you might just hear a track or two from the new album

Head over to our website to pre order the album

Into March we go , day 59_2017

Thought I’d post an update 😀

On the SoundCloud and mixcloud platform is a special three part countdown of the biggest selling singles of the 1960’s.

Who’s at #1?

Go grab the shows on catchup over on those sites.
We welcome Paul, to the station, he is our second autistic presenter and is currently awaiting some shiny new radio kit to get him online and out to you on the www.

Songs. Onto use to grow the catalogue, last count 25,000 songs to choose from! No same 10 songs in a row here 😄

Is it live or recorded…. can you tell? When myself and Trevor are on air, are we??

Technology at the station, as with most of the professional ones, has come on heaps over the years, allowing the presenters to have a more 9-5 job, the trick is to sound convincing 
Thanks for listening and keep following our development throughout 2017
