DJ AP (c) (and pronounced Dee-JAP) is our AI DJ who chooses songs at random from our playlists for the autoplay show "Dee Play", in which she provides the music between the live shows.
Always uncompromising and surprising, Dee has developed her own mannerisms and now has a voice in which she speaks at intervals to her listeners.
Imagine an alternative Universe, which has a Revolution Radio, with the same DJs and the same listeners, but does shows you just wouldn't expect those DJs to do!
Welcome to the DiVerse!
Ok, it's all a bit of fun really, see the Schedule page for details.
Here and there, we'll do Show Pilots, testing out new ideas and formats for you to give your opinion on.
Who knows, one or two of them may become regulars here on the station!
