Frequently Asked Questions
Oh, hello. Thanks for dropping by. What would you like to know?
What is airUK?
airUK is a totally online internet radio station. We take pride in the fact that we have great music and great presenters, and we hope that we will become one of your favourite radio stations. We don’t have a particular style of music that we play: hopefully there is something in the schedule that tickles your fancy. But if not, and you’re a budding radio enthusiast, why not join us and present your own show?
We are staffed entirely by our members, who pay a subscription fee. If you like what we do, or if there is a particular presenter that you think should be heard more, please do tell your friends!
I've heard about music piracy. Are you legal?
Yes, we are.
We are proud to admit that our greatest continuous running cost is the license fee, which we pay in order to stream recorded works over the Internet.
Music piracy is a crime. It hurts an industry without which our lives would potentially by far less fulfilling. And we’d be forced to listen to terrible, terrible things because no-one would be able to afford to create crafted pieces of work.
Can I become a presenter?
Yes, you can.
We have a few rules and standards that we expect our presenters to meet. But if you have a passion for something, and can make radio programmes out of that passion, then we’d love to hear from you.
There is a membership fee, which, if we’re lucky, will help cover the cost of the broadcast licensing. But if you want to do a pre-recorded programme, this starts at just £40.00 a year, or £4.00 a month. If you want to present live, then, as we have extra infrastructure to set up, it costs £50.00 per year, or £5.00 per month.
Do I have to come to you to broadcast live?
No. You will need to have a decent internet connection because you will need to connect directly to our Broadcast Centre. Don’t worry! We can help get you all set up.
