Here you should find all the useful information you need as a member…
You are free to choose your own music to play on your shows. We have a PRS and PPL license for internet broadcasting in the UK. This means we are licensed for playing most commercial music releases.
Please note for licensing purposes we require each presenter to submit a playlist for each show they do, using the form below.
All unsigned artists do not fall under the PRS and PPL licenses, so you must get express written permission from the artists to be able to play their music.
And if you don’t have a big library of music to call upon you can borrow ours, which we’ve uploaded to Google Drive….
Our Dropbox includes completed jingles and logos; but also elements that you can use to create your own, like templates, voiceovers and more.
If you want your own jingles for your show you can make them yourself using the files available, or ask for help in the Slack channel. If you want a voiceover by the guy we used you can hire him on Fiverr.com. Check out Jack White Media on Fiverr.
If you create your own graphics for the show you can also make use of the station colours using the below hex colour codes:
- Dark Grey – 404040
- Pinky Orange – ff846a
- Blue – 03d0ff

If you’re new to online radio and need a system to play your music, as well as jingles, then we recommend Mixxx. It’s free for Windows, Mac and Linux!
Check out mixxx.org for more info and to download. If you’re using it on Windows you’ll also need to install a dll file to activate MP3 streaming, you can find the download link and instructions for that in this guide, which also include help in getting set up.

THE BEAR BOARD
The Board has not yet been formed. Until such time as the Board is formed all Board duties will be carried out by The Bear founder, me, Alan Galpin.
The constitution allows me to select the initial Board members, who will be charged with duties relating to membership, finances, admin and more. If there is a particular element that you want to help with please do let me know.
Once the Board is formed there will be annual elections at our AGM, which will be carried out online. Anyone can run for a Board position and there is no maximum term limit.
