From the list below choose one of our FAQs. If you have a question which is not in this section, please contact us.
1. How do I tune in?
Each Channel has its own tune in page. You can access these by clicking on any of the channels listed in the left hand menu. A web player autostarts when you choose a channel and underneath that is a pop-up version (You need to click stop on the autostart version before you open the pop-up version).
If you prefer to use your own media players, a sub menu opens in the menu with further tune in options.
2. I would like to DJ for HotTrax Radio. What steps do I need to take?
Firstly each of our channels has its own chat room. It allows realtime chat with our DJs and/or listeners when they are online. They can be found via any of the channel links in the left hand menu.
Secondly you can contact us on Yahoo Messenger. Each channel has its own Yahoo ID and a link to it can be found by clicking on the channels in the left hand menu. If you add us to your contact list we will notify you when a DJ is about to go on air.
Firstly - and our recommended way - is our web request function. When a DJ is on air request links appear in their playlists, simply browse to the song you want to hear then click the request link to the left of it. A new window opens where you can say who you are and add a dedication message if you want to. Playlists can be found via the channel pages (left hand menu) or in the Our DJs page. Please note that the web request function only works with DJs that are on the air at the time.
Secondly, you can request a song in our chat room/s. Either by asking the DJ directly or by typing in the room @request followed by the song title and artist. For example if you wanted to hear Lily Allen singing The Fear you would type @request Lily Allen - The Fear
Thirdly, you can contact us on Yahoo Messenger via our channel pages (links in the left hand menu) If you add us to your contact list we will notify you when a DJ is about to go on air. Please make sure you use the correct page/Yahoo ID for the channel you are tuned into.
