SOLAR RADIO EVENTS – TICKETING PROCEDURE
With the ever-increasing number of people tuning to Solar Radio, we are happy to welcome new customers to our events including the ever-popular Soul Cruises, and it may be timely to advise new folk (and remind valued 'regulars'!) of our ticketing procedures. TICKETS ARE SOLD ON A 'FIRM SALE' BASIS. There is no automatic refund for cancellations unless we have published a 'Buy Back' message - any returns will be offered to any Waiting List customers for re-sale. We do not send out tickets for our river events, either by post or as e-tickets, but we do hold all tickets for collection on the day, just before the event. After the initial acknowledgement, the buyer will later be sent another email, advising of collection time and boarding information. We hope this helps!
SOUL CITIZEN – Autobiography of Clive ‘R’
Our Sunday morning 'In Orbit' man, CLIVE R, has written his autobiography - entitled SOUL CITIZEN- relating his memories and experiences over his fifty years as a soul fan, record-collector, music journalist, club and concert-goer, oh, and soul radio DJ!
Clive is now making the book available direct to Solar Radio listeners. Purchase the book HERE
PLAYLISTS AND SOCIAL MEDIA
With so many presenters playing new music, and with the present inability of singers and musicians to earn income from indoor shows and gigs, they are even more dependent on revenue from sales of downloads, CDs and merchandise. DJs are usually careful to announce names of performers, but if you happen to miss this information, there is usually a podcast available with a playlist, these posted usually on the DJ's social media account and/or on the Solar Radio Group Page on Facebook.
SOLAR RADIO BROADCASTING PLATFORMS
Solar Radio is available to listeners on a range of streaming platforms including our free branded apps for iPhone and Android mobile devices, and similarly with smart speakers such as Echo Dot and Google now available from web dealers and electrical retailers, plus Internet Radios. Solar Radio is also readily available via other apps including TuneIn Radio and RadioplayerUK, and directly from our website at www.solarradio.com.
Solar Radio has also been involved in the path-finding small-scale DAB experiment, and is currently available on DAB+ in the Inner London area (within the North and South Circular Roads), Brighton and Norwich.
SOLAR RADIO – SOUL TOP 500 CHART
At the end of 2019, TONY MONSON asked all connected with SOLAR RADIO, including DJs, listeners, artists and all friends of the station to submit their ALL TIME TOP 10 favourite tracks and albums. Contributors totalled some 500 people, from whose suggestions the TOP 500 chart was compiled.
The first 100 can be seen here-Top 500 # 1 to # 100
The next hundred, 101 to 200 - ...the next 100, # 101 - #200
Positions 201 to 300 are here-..third segment, #201 - #300
