Sunshine Radio Online is not re-inventing radio – but we are passionate about HOW we do radio. We combine the talents of complete “Newbies” and a core of vastly experienced professionals.
Our DJ team can list having worked during the heyday of leading stations such as – Radio Luxembourg – BBC Radio 1 – BBC Radio 2 – Virgin – Radio Caroline – Smooth Radio – Radio 210 – GWR – Sky – Capital Radio – Buzz – Radio Victory – RTL – AFN – Beacon – Q102 – Aire – Citybeat – The Wave – Red Rose Radio – Jazz FM – Radio Forth – BFBS – BRMB – Radio Clyde – Talk Radio – Radio Wulfren – Metro FM – Hereward Radio – The Coast – Downtown Radio – and countless others…….
Our instructions to anyone joining our team of volunteers is a simple guideline “Pick great Music & have fun” – that’s it! – It’s not rocket science! – we don’t bog our team down with static playlists of a few hundred songs played in a never ending loop – we encourage our DJs to entertain, and to a point educate, listeners by playing tracks that they did not know they wanted to hear.
“A good DJ will play you the tracks you want to hear – a great DJ will play you the tracks that you did not know you wanted to hear!”
We take what we do VERY seriously – however – as you will hear – we don’t take ourselves too seriously! – many of our shows are live – so our DJs are doing things on-the-fly and often with results that will have you chuckling – this is showbiz – this is entertainment – time to leave your woes and worries behind – “turn up the volume and rip the knob off” as one DJ used to say. Spread the word and tell your friends about us – the greater our audience the more buzz the DJ team gets – and the better the radio gets – we feed off interaction with our Sunshiners – and keep regular contact through Facebook and Twitter. We are constantly looking at new ways to get our signal to you – we have free apps for your phones and we are on an ever growing number of streaming providers.
We are not in this for the money – Sunshine Radio Online Ltd. is a not for profit company and we rely totally on the generosity of the DJ team giving their time to keep this station alive – and on the amazing generosity of our Sunshiners and commercial advertisers to finance us. We do not have a central studio – we work totally “in the cloud” – all of our team have their own studios and they can hook into our cloud playout system from anywhere in the world to provide shows – we have DJs based in the UK, Ireland, Canada, The USA, Ghana, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Portugal, Hong Kong and Denmark.
Welcome to Sunshine Radio Online – we hope we bring a ray of sunlight into your life.
