Questions & Answers

Yes and No. radio42 is a pure internet stream boradcasting 24/7. But we have a weekly radio show on TIDE 96.0 FM, every Tuesday at 8:00 am.
The name is based on The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, a comedy science fiction series created by Douglas Adams. In this story a group of hyper-intelligent pan-dimensional beings have build a super computer (named Deep Thought) to find the Answer to The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything. It took 7½ million years to compute and check the answer, which turns out to be 42.
If you love soul music, radio42 might be your ultimate answer.
Soul was always my passion. But at the time when I started my radio station I used to play music at a lounge bar (and lounge bars in general had been pretty fancy these days). That's why I called it Music for Lounge-Lovers, because it is the lovers of (soul) music deserving it and attending at the lounge bar.
We are streaming in high-quality with 192 kbps (kilo bit per second). This requires a a good and stable internet connection. If the connection between your device and our server breaks or is even temporarily slow you might experiance drop outs or a stuttering stream. This should normally only happen very rarely (unless your internet connection is by definition quite slow). In such case try our AAC+ stream (which only uses around 48kbps bandwidth) or consult your internet provider for a more stable and better conneciton. A standard DSL or UMTS/LTE connection should be sufficient.
