Pirate FM listeners choose the music we play. We recognise that playing the favourite music of our listeners is very important so for this reason we have The Soundcheck. Listeners can join by clicking here. On a regular basis, our members are invited by email to take part in a music survey where they get to hear the ‘hooks' of a selection of songs. A member of the Soundcheck has the chance to say whether it is a song they love, like or dislike and are even asked whether it is heard too much or too little. We react accordingly by using this data to decide whether certain songs should be played or not, or whether their rotation should be reduced...or indeed in some instances, increased.
