NSB Radio is a non-profit making entity, created by, and made for, its DJs and listeners! The costs of NSB Radio are pretty huge, and this has been funded by its founders since 2004. In 2009, we gave listeners and DJs the ability to donate and help cover the costs, which has been fantastic, and helped NSB survive! Thank you!
To spearhead a new phase of growth for the station, we kindly ask all our DJs to now donate towards the costs involved with running NSB Radio and improving it,
We want to reward supporters in any way we can, and we have now introduced a tiered benefits system as our way of saying thank you for their extra support.
Every NSB Radio DJ gets access to all of this:
All our DJs get the following when you play on NSB:
1) Broadcast on the biggest breaks dance radio station in the World
We are a multi-award winning station, the biggest and best breakbeat radio station, and one of the leading dance music internet stations in the world. And we want to go further with it. Your donation will help us to ensure this.
2) World class server infrastructure + geolocated distribution
Our servers are administrated by a leader in web server infrastructure, meaning we can handle vast amounts of listeners, plus offer a high quality music stream synced anywhere in the world.
3) Professional CloudFlare-protected servers
To prevent hacking and malicious intent, our servers are now protected by CloudFlare Business, a global CDN and DNS system which helps keep our website online.
4) Host unlimited archive shows
Once you’ve broadcast your show, upload the MP3 file to our shows archive and let your listeners download it again. Let other listeners find and discover it. Host unlimited shows, get unlimited downloads.
5) Re-broadcasting your shows as part of AutoDJ
All uploaded archive shows are auto-synced in to our AutoDJ system, so if there is quiet air time we randomly pick shows to fill it. Find new listeners and new audiences even while you sleep.
6) DJ only Slack chat channels
Talk with other DJs and get help with your show on our DJs only Slack chat channels – exclusively for NSB Radio DJs. Available on PC, Mac, iPhone and Android, our chat software is super easy to use.
7) Promotion of your shows on social media and NSB website
We help promote your show by promoting it on Twitter, Facebook, VK and more, advertising your show or archive, and helping you reach new listeners.
8) Promos and tracks to download direct from artists & labels
Every month we get tracks sent to us from labels and artists requesting them to be played. We’ve built a system to get these tracks to you – upfront and for free.
9) Opportunities for guest mixes from famous DJs
We love to help artists get out there – so whenever they have a mix to promote, we will secure it for our supporters so you can highlight it in your shows. Association with big names on your show gets your more listeners and more exposure.
All of this costs the station hundred of pounds every month to provide, and takes hundreds of man (and woman!) hours to manage.
All DJs are required to donate a minimum amount to ensure the station is not only kept running, but also improving.
