3 Great ways to listen live each week

- Last Tuesday’s show was not uploaded to mixcloud, due to a technical fault with Roch Valley Radio’s software. Please accept my apologies.
Just a reminder for those out having fun last night, Yesterday’s Summer, Sunshine & Soul is repeated at 12 noon today here on K.T.F.I.R.
Tonight’s live broadcast is now available on Mixcloud
Or via the Listen again page at www.keepthefaithinternetradio.uk
where there is also an off-line podcast available to download too
Due to technical problems at RVR, Soul Scene with Louise Bugeja was not recorded last Tuesday and the quality of our recording of the show here at KTFIR was unfortunately not good enough to enable us to re broadcast it today. We do sincerely apologise to you.
Sorry If anyone was listening, but crucial update was needed to the station software, plus we’ve added another 50 tracks to the playlist
I discovered 10 minutes from the end of tonight’s show that the microphone had not been broadcasting. Everything sounded normal through the headphones so I had no idea.
I wasn’t sure I would make it home in time to do a live show this week, as a back up I had done a pre recorded version earlier in the week. This version has been up loaded to Mixcloud and will be broadcast Sunday at 12 noon
So having decided the problem wasn’t their end, virginmedia suddenly noticed that actually it was.
We are now back on air thankfully.
Unfortunately the connection problem cannot be sorted out today. A virginmedia engineer will be with me between 4 and 7 pm tomorrow. I am hoping we can be back on air in time to stream Soul Scene as usual.
I am aware the station is offline, unfortunately day job means I am unable to correct this until I arrive home somewhere between 4.30 & 5pm. Please accept my apologies.
You can watch us live on the cam at
For copyright reasons there is no sound, so you still need to have the station open in another tab.
Tonight’s playlist is now uploaded to website.
Scroll to the bottom of Summer, Sunshine and Soul page and follow the link
We have added 100 new track to the station this weekend. Enjoy!
Station offline until about 21.30 whilst I add another 100 or so tracks to the playlist
Roch Valley’s Soul Scene with Louise Bugeja is now available
Unfortunately the stream from Roch Valley Radio went down tonight and we were unable to bring the last 20 minutes of what was a brilliant show, this was outside of the control of both Roch Valley Radio and Keep The Faith Internet Radio and we do apologise to you all.

Big thank you for a fantastic show tonight by Louise Bugeja. We will repost the mixcloud recording to the website once Roch Valley radio upload it, so that you can either listen again or if you missed it, hear it for the first time!
Keep The Faith Internet Radio is a hobby and not a commercially run station and whilst I try to keep the service running 24/7, there are occasions like today where the music computer that feeds the server freezes during the day when I’m at work. I do apologise for any gaps in entertainment, and will always turn it back on when I get home
Thank you for your understanding
What a fantastic 2 hours of great music by Louise Bugeja. Can’t wait to listen again when Roch Valley Radio upload it to mixcloud
