Listening to Folk Radio UK13 January 2010
We have THREE Radio Channels in Total. Two are hosted on Radionomy and One is hosted on Deezer. The listen links for all are over on the right of the website under ‘Choose a Channel to listen to’
We have TWO channels here, one playing a mix of progressive Traditional music, Contemporary and Alternative folk (Folk Radio UK) and the other playing more traditional based folk music (Folk Radio UK – British Folk & Beyond).
Our Deezer Channel
Folk Radio UK runs its own channel on Deezer as a media partner. To listen just press play on the Deezer image in our listen section on the right-hand-side of our website.
You can also listen directly on Deezer by clicking here, just bookmark this link, it is free to use.
To enjoy Deezer to its fullest we recommend you sign-up to enjoy some of the other rich features that we use Deezer for such as album previews for which you will only hear a 30 second clip if you’re not logged in. Signing up is free and easy. When playing an album widget you will get a prompt to sign in after 30 seconds.
