We are Brap.FM
We’re an Internet Radio Station. We like good music. Just like you.
The majority of our shows are scheduled during the week from 6PM to 12AM UK time. These shows feature anything from Techno to DNB, Dubstep to House but we’re open to all genres so don’t be afraid to get in touch if you’ve got an idea that might be slightly off the wall. When we don’t have live shows we have our ‘Random Rotation’ playing the previous months archives on a random rotation. Catchy title eh
You can tune in via the Brap.FM website or through iTunes where all of our archives are podcasted making them available for all enlightened listeners to download whenever they like.
We’re always on the lookout for new DJs to join our roster. If you’ve got a couple of hours to spare every two weeks then we want to hear from you. Get a mix together or write up a bio and then get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org - we’d be interested to hear what you’ve got to offer.
Why join Brap.FM?
We’re a community of like minded individuals with a universal love of music. Mostly Brap is all about electronic music but we do have a wider general music policy as well. While this might not get us the most amount of listeners it does mean we are able to step outside pigeonholes and offer you a broader range of music to listen to. There’s nothing better than tuning in to an Internet radio station and discovering new sounds. This is what drives us and pushes us to continually deliver high quality programming.
Brap DJs are all involved in music in some way, shape or form. Be that a resident DJ, a producer, a label owner or a promoter. Brap DJs play at most of the UKs biggest festivals; Glastonbury, Glade, Waveform and many others. We’re always proud to see Brap DJs appear on flyers for some of the biggest events up and down the country. We could even say that being a part of Brap gives you some weight when getting gigs. So don’t be afraid to say you’re part of Brap when promoting yourself.
So what do you get?
Brap is ultimately a subscription based service. That is, you pay a small sub which goes towards paying for the stuff that keeps Brap running. This includes web servers, stream servers, site hosting costs and domain renewal costs. However, we like to offer DJs a grace period of a month to see how they get on. If they like it then they’re invited to chip in and contribute.
You’ll have access to an automated iTunes podcast service which means after you upload your show to the archives that show will then be added to the overall Brap.FM podcast and then to your very own personal iTunes podcast. With this combined we have a generous number of downloads per month. On top of that you get unlimited hosting for your archives and your mixes.
We’re also now allowing DJs to submit pre-records. If you have time to put together a 2 hour show but can’t commit to a live show then we want to hear from you. You get all the benefits of being a Brap DJ with the added flexibility of recording your shows before hand and uploading to our FTP. We’ll then schedule your show for you and you sit back and relax.
Brap is a platform and you are free to use that platform to promote yourself and your show however you see fit. You can even add news to the Brap.FM main page (as long as it’s music or Brap related, of course).
We’ve been going for some while now and we plan to be around a lot longer.
If this sounds like something you want to be a part of then the first thing you should do is check out the schedule and look for anything labelled as ‘The Random Rotation’ as we’re looking for someone to fill that slot. Drop us an email at email@example.com with links to mixes (Soundcloud, Mixcloud etc) or enclose a short bio.
If we like the cut of your jib, we’ll be in touch.
