HAPPY BIRTHDAY AFFINITY


Well it's been an age since we last talked. I was just thinking it was time to get writing again,

What's been happening!

Lots of things have changed Affinity Radio in the past year. We have seen a few presenters leave, come back and leave again....don't ask!!! We have a number of new laddies and gents on board now bringing the broadcasting crew up to 27 today. We have moved servers to Radio.co in March 2016, with the old server finally turning off in June.

Its that time again

So its fast approaching 14 August 2016 when it will be our 6th year of broadcasting 24/7

A BIG thank you to all!

I'd like to thank our listeners for sticking with us and also a BIG thank you to all our presenters, sponsors and behind the scenes folks who help to make it happen.

Thanks and here is to the next 6 years.

Best regards
Dave Kelly
Presenter and co-founder of Affinity

Staring an internet radio station?

It's been a while, but we have been busy at Affinity radio.


Keeping listeners happy is a full time occupation.

We have had a number of messages and emails asking what equipment we use and how to set up an internet radio station.

The best advice is to scour the internet, including YouTube for ideas, that's what we did way back in August 2010.

We have also included a few links that you may find useful






Here is Studio 1

Studio basics:
1 PC/Mac/Laptop
2 Streaming software (free or purchased) we started with Winamp
3 Microphone (best you can afford)
4 Mixer or Audio interface (laptop) for basic mixing of external inputs (CD player, decks, microphones etc)
5 Good internet connection
6 Obvious - Music
7 Local licences (PPL & PRS in UK)
8 Get a server provider to stream your output through
9 Register your station stream on internet radio directories
10 Get that show on the road
11 Register on iTunes, TuneIn, 
12 tell the world you exist via social media



Best of luck to you.

If you need any advice drop us an email to affinityradio.net@gmail.com and we will be glad to help.

Cheers

No "Radio" button on latest iTunes???

So you've downloaded the latest iTunes update to your PC. I'm sure there are lots of improvements, but wait a minute! Where has the "Radio" button gone?.

Someone in their wisdom has changed the name of the RADIO button to INTERNET and also has not made it a preset default setting either. So how can I listen again to my favourite internet radio station through iTunes?

All is not lost, check out the video below to get it back.

I've lost my iTunes Internet Radio Button

If you don't like to open links to You Tube, here are written instructions.


  1. Open iTunes
  2. Click on the box at Top Left of the iTunes screen
  3. Select "Preferences" from the menu
  4. in "General Preferences"
  5. Select "Internet Radio" tick box
  6. Click OK
  7. You now have a button called "Internet", this is the old "Radio" button
  8. Click on this and you'll find all the usual internet radio stations
You can find Affinity Radio under "Golden Oldies" check us out, we play the best from the 60s, 70s and 80s and a little bit more too.

Ken Lockerbie Retires from Broadcasting

Hello Listener,
We have to tell you that after a long illness Ken has informed us that he can no longer broadcast. I'm sure our regular listeners have wondered what has become of Ken. We will leave that explanation for Ken to explain later. Ken has a great following and lists a large expat community of avid listeners to his regular Monday night slot.

Ade has been holding the fort for Ken and now launches a new show from next Monday called "Golden Decades", we wish him every success and hope that Kens fans will support this new show.

Ken will be doing some work behind the scene of which we will tell more soon so watch this space.

Best regards
