In the proposal, DJs are asked to give their project blueprints in the way of a show title and description, along with proposed genres and links to show demos and social media links.

“We’re looking for new NTS residents. Tell a friend” read the tweet from the London station on June 1. The station announced a listener support scheme last year, where supporters were asked to pay toward the free station in aid of licensing, streaming and show production.
