Affinity Radio was formed as a hobby which has progressed into a professional internet radio station. We are online 24/7 playing music from the 60's, 70's and 80's. We have themed music shows every day. We broadcast from Aylesford and Rainham in Kent, United Kingdom
Well Dave is in Aberdeen again. He is meeting an up and coming new rock band called Estrella. Good sound and you will hear them soon on Daves Thursday Nite Rock Show on www.affinityradio.net.
We also use as guest / outside broadcast microphones a brace of Behringer XM1800S Ultravoice dynamic microphones now at a bargain price of £35 for a set of 3. We also use a Shure SM58 (£95) and to be honest you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between the Shure and the XM1899S.

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.
