ON-AIR DEDICATIONS -
for LIVE Cha
llenge winners

There are several ways to get an on-air dedication on the show...

I will randomly select a few of my TWITTER followers - especially those tweeting during the show and using the hashtag #ikontheradio.

If you text me during the show and are a winner of the LYRICS CHALLENGE. The mystery praise or worship song will be dedicated to you (or someone you nominate).

If you email me, and are a winner of the LIMERICKS CHALLENGE, I will dedicate one of the currently popular songs to you - or to someone you nominate - the following week.


The Music

The music I play includes plenty of currently popular praise and worship songs, plus a secular selection to give a balanced mix. Feel free to join in and sing! I generally go for gentler songs, although I may sometime surprise you. (And myself!) I usually end the show with a 'mellow music mix'.

The Featured Artist of Theme

Quite often I will take a particular artist, genre or period, and play several related songs. It helps to create an eclectic mix.

New Releases

I play two or three releases that are new in the current month. Great to hear new sounds or tracks.

Musical Discoveries

I generally play two or three artists or tracks that might be new to you. You might discover a new sound this way. I often do!

The Weekly Challenge

This comprises either The Artist Challenge or The Mystery Sound Challenge... or something else challenging! Who knows what?

Unless otherwise stated, copyright of mystery sounds is royalty free Attribution 3.0, or from the public domain. Unless otherwise stated, the Attribution 3.0 recordings used were recorded by Mike Koenig.

Shout-outs & Comments

Please use the Contact Form above if you would like a shout-out or dedication during the live show - or a future show.

You can also follow me on Twitter or tweet using the hashtag #ikontheradio to qualify for upcoming song dedications on the show. On Twitter I am @authorkingsley. Or just follow me on Twitter. I give random dedications to my Twitter and Facebook followers.

Funny & Fantastic Facts

The show generally includes some 'Funny and Fantastic Facts' - or 'FAFs' for short! (I'll be "faffing around" to offer many new insights on life!)

Words of Wisdom

I also offer short 'Words of Wisdom' quotes to help inspire and rejuvenate you! These are mainly in the second hour of the show - and they may be from the Bible or the wise!

Inspiring Words & Stories

These are usually connected with faith. It might be metaphorical or it might be real. Or it might be about someone really inspiring!

If you have a REAL inspiring story to tell, and would like to share it with listeners, I will try to include it in a FUTURE show.

Just use the Contact Form above. I will read out the most inspiring.

The Viewpoint Feature

This is anything I consider particularly interesting, inspiring, or beneficial - from the self-help perspective.

Humour

There's usually a funny side to most things. I'm always out to find that particular perspective!

Mellow Mix

During the last 20 minutes or so, coming up to the show ending at 10 pm, I play a mellow mix of music to help you wind down before bedtime.

What's coming up next?

My show is on Thursday evenings. So most Wednesday evenings you will find a post about my forthcoming show on the Hope FM Facebook page. When you do, remember my show is called 'INSPIRE'.

Time Zones

Hope FM is in the UK and on LONDON WORLD TIME.

If you are listening in from outside this time zone, click here to work out the time you should listen in.

Listening In

If you live in the Bournemouth and Poole areas of the UK and have any problem listening in on you HiFi at home, redirect your FM aerial to point towards Bournemouth University, where the radio station transmitter is located. It should still pick up other local radio stations with good strength.

If you live in the Bournemouth and Poole areas of the UK and want to tune-in your car radio to 90.1 FM, either do this manually, or wait until you are driving in Bournemouth and Poole and do a station scan. This should pick up Hope FM. When you are receiving it, press and hold your '1' station button for a few seconds to set it to that button (or choose a different station button). Thereafter you should pick up the station over a wider local area.

As stated above, to listen for free, via the internet, just use the tunein ap.
