Cruise FM Public File
Although not licenced by OFCOM, as Cruise FM only broadcasts through the internet, using various portals such as tune-in we have decided to place a public file on the website to give you an idea of what you can expect from Cruise FM. We hold the necessary licences provided by PRS for Music and PPL to broadcast online.
New bulletins are broadcast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are provided by Radio News Hub on behalf of Cruise FM. The service also provides us with the latest sports news on weekdays and also showbiz news at the weekend, and are provided at various times during the day and week.
The bulletins are 2-minutes at the top of each hour and is followed by the weather forecast.
An up-to-date version of the station's programme schedule is available here.
In order to provide a 24/7 service there is the use of automated music output which is provided by the station's playout software which is supplied by StationPlaylist. The system allows for live, pre-recorded and automated output and ensures that the station is always on the air. The system is also monitored to alert station staff of any problems with the transmission feed so that any interruption can be dealt with quickly and efficiently.
Cruise FM prides itself on the wide variety of music that is included within the programme service. The music core choice ranges from January 1st, 1964 to the current music charts with a sprinkling of new and pre-release songs. The database also contains music prior to 1964 and this can be included into the programme service as required. The weekly music playlist is published on the website and is available here.
Cruise FM uses two Shoutcast servers to broadcast our service using MP3 at a bit rate of 128kbps. Server 1 provided the main programme feed with server 2 providing a back-up should the main server go down for any reason. It is possible to tune into the servers using the appropriate url address which can be provided on request by contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
