Skylab Radio's music policy has often been described as 'eclectic' or 'random',
which is very true!
Chillout music in all its forms is a worldwide phenomenon and our aim is to
reflect this in our output.
MUSIC FOR THE MIND, BODY AND SOUL (Music Policy - updated 27/02/20)
Skylab Radio utilises three interwoven playlists, unimaginatively labelled A, B and C. The 'A' Playlist for instance, features tracks recently added to Skylab Radio, featuring anything from new releases or promos to classic tracks. We endeavour to add new tracks to the playlists as frequently as possible.
Since our creation; Skylab Radio has championed emerging artists/producers who create their own chillout, lounge, ambient or soft house. We aim to continue this, even though Skylab is not an 'independent/unsigned artists' radio station. Please go to our contact page, or follow us on Twitter and send us more information about your music via Direct Message, giving a brief biography and track details from Mixcloud, Bandcamp or Soundcloud. Skylab Radio reserve the right not to play submitted tracks. Please also note the existing music genres played on Skylab Radio. If you are unsure about what we play - we recommend listening to the radio station before submitting material for airplay We only playlist tracks that are suitable for broadcast, fit the station ethos and radio friendly (Skylab Radio is licensed by Ofcom in the United Kingdom).

SKYLAB RADIO PLAYLIST PROGRAMME
During our time submitting programming to Upload Radio; we featured our most popular and/or new tracks on a programme called "The Skylab Radio Playlist", which initially ran for 25 episodes. The "Playlist" was produced by what we referred to as the "Masked DJ Collective" or Lucy and Paul, along with others who provided their voices - Ashleigh, Hazel and Andrea. When Upload Radio 'paused', we received feedback from listeners wanting the "Playlist" to return. When Skylab Radio launched on Digital radio, we were pleased to announce that the "Playlist" would return on a Saturday night. In addition; we would also upload the programme onto Mixcloud, so that it is available to a potentially wider audience.
