How do I get a show?
In order to get a show you need to:
Provide at least 1 demo mix (min of 1 hour, hosted on Mixcloud or a similar site) with a brief summary of your DJ (and production, if appropriate) career.
Look at the Available Slots Page for a slot that will suit you before applying (do not request a slot that is already taken).
Use the Contact page and put “Show Request” clearly in the message title. We will respond to enquiries asap
There are no free slots. What can I do to get a show?
Unfortunately if you want a show but no free slot is available that you can do we are unable to help. Our suggestion is to regularly check the Available Slots Page for any openings that you can do, and apply as soon as one is free.
Why wont the Chatroom let me in?
There may be a couple of possible reasons for this. Firstly is your browser up to date?
If it is and the page wont load, then the “Chat Widget” or the “Chat Server” might be temporarily down.
If you are getting a message saying your IP is banned turn your router on and off so that your ISP will give you a new one (note this may take more than 1 attempt depending on your provider).
Can I join the Chatroom by IRC?

When I click on a Media Player listen link the music doesn’t start, why?
There are 3 things you can do if you want to use your favourite Media Player but clicking the link prompts a download rather than opens the player.
1. Change your browser settings to allow .pls or .asx or .ram files (depending on your player choice) to open in your player.
2. Save the file to your Desktop and click it to tune in.
3. Copy one of the following into the “play URL” part of the media player that you use:
iTunes / VLC / XMMS / Winamp – https://www.sub.fm/listen.pls
Windows Media Player – https://www.sub.fm/listen.asx
Real Player – https://www.sub.fm/listen.ram
I’ve tried everything and still can’t tune in, why?
If you still can’t tune in and are receiving a message saying “Service Unavailable” please check the Timetable and Home pages to see if we are broadcasting.
If this hasn’t solved your problem, please contact us via the Contact page and we shall try and fix the problem.
