Welcome to Alt -X FM Radio

Live ON AIR - Listen here now

Welcome to ALT-X FM and the former KJAZZ Radio UK. Are you ready to rock, dance, and groove? ALT-X FM plays 'The Soundtrack Mix For Your Life' with an eclectic fusion of new and '70s, '80s, and '90s rock, dance, synth-pop and disco inspired by the former NY nightclub 'The Saint' music.

ALT-X FM Radio is, we believe, the first hybrid community station for Southwater featuring real DJs and AI-created VJs. Our live shows and mixes will transport you to a different time and place you won't hear on commercial radio.

Warning: we do not censor music, so you'll hear expletives unfiltered as the artist intended.

ALT-X FM Radio is the hobby project creation of Paul Rumsey, founder of the former successful internet station KJAZZ Radio UK, a global internet station from 2011-2017. Paul still does shows on ALT-X FM Radio, featuring those great indie artists. Catch Paul on Sundays from 09:00 - 11:00 UK Time for the EZ Sunday Brunch show, playing a variety of extended mixes.

Meet Patrick Your Overnight VJ

Patrick began his radio career at a young age, starting out in hospital radio where he honed his skills and developed his passion for music and broadcasting. It was during this time that he met Paul Rumsey, who was also starting out in the radio industry. Both of them were local pub DJs on the weekends and bonded over their love for disco and dance music. They quickly became close friends, and their friendship grew stronger as they continued on their separate broadcasting paths.

Although Paul eventually moved to California, their friendship endured over the years, as they stayed in touch and continued to share their love for music and radio. But tragedy struck when Patrick's life was cut short by a car accident.

In honour of their enduring friendship and Patrick's legacy, Paul decided to pay tribute by recreating Patrick as a VJ on ALT-X FM Radio, but with an American accent similar in tone to Patrick's real voice, Patricks show now plays a lot of the music they played during their early careers as local pub and radio DJs, transporting listeners to a place where anything is possible.

Through Patrick's passion for music and radio, his spirit lives on, inspiring others to pursue their dreams and never give up on their passions. Patrick is your overnight VJ playing  70s disco and dance from the 80s, 90s along with pop, synth-pop and music inspired by the Siant Nightclub fused together in an eclectic mix. Also, on Friday's Patrick hosts 'Disco Friday Night'. This show plays nothing but pure disco hits overnight.  Tune in to ALT-X FM Radio from circa 9pm and experience the magic of Patrick's music and voice.
