What music do we play?
Our service is generally aimed at the over 40’s, so our music is mostly (though by no means exclusively) mainstream hits from the 1960s to the 1990s. We have a good helping of current hits and hits from the 2000s and the 2010s as well.
In the evenings we broadcast a much wider variety of music, from classical to EDM, folk to country, blues to qwaito.

Exclusive SoundChecker Mug
We are giving away an exclusive Kennet Radio SoundChecker mug every week to one lucky Sound Checker drawn at random from all the Sound Checkers who email us each week. The winner will be announced on air every Friday. What are you waiting for?!
We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for getting involved with the Kennet Radio Soundcheck.
As a radio station, music is very important to us. And local music from local people is one of our passions – there is a huge amount of talent in the Kennet Radio area.
If you are a local band or performer and you would like us to play your music on Kennet Radio, we’d love to hear from you. Drop an email to [email protected] and tell us about you, your band, and your music. If you have a Electronic Press Kit (EPK), even better. And let us have a broadcast quality copy of the tune(s) you’d like us to play*, and we’ll see what we can do to bring you and your music to a wider audience!
Rather than emailing audio files to us (which fills up email inboxes very fast!) we ask that you share your music with us via a link to a cloud-based sharing service such as Dropbox or Google Drive, or send them to us using the free WeTransfer service – thank you.
*We can play most common digital audio formats, including WAV, FLAC, AAC, and M4A, but our preferred format (because it is the most versatile and the easiest to manage from the point of view of file size) format to use is 320kbps MP3, CBR, stereo.
We can also play music provided to us on CD.
Unfortunately we cannot play music on vinyl, DRM-protected digital music, and M4P format from Apple/iTunes.
