Alt - X FM Radio Southwater

Alt - X FM Radio Full Spectrum Grooves

Founded with the mindset of becoming a community radio for Southwater & Horsham ALT-X FM Radio is an adult album alternative station that has evolved to play an eclectic mix of 80's & 90's centric music fused together in a freestyle set of shows and mixes. ALT-X FM Radio - Southwater community weather, traffic, and event news can be found at the bottom of this page.

Why the name? It is a play on words the founder Paul Rumsey was on FM radio back in the 80's and 90's in California and as well as radio worked as a club DJ. So one could say he is now X - FM. ALT was added as short for Alternative music and also as we are internet-based a nod is given to this by Alt which of course is a key on every computer.

Note: ALT-X FM offers unrestricted music so does not filter the language in songs that some may find offensive!

In his words - ...based in Nottingham U.K. I have a wide and varied knowledge of most genres. If I'm going to pick a particular era, I'd say the 80's is my favorite decade. I've been a professional DJ since 1979 when I was only 16. I love entertaining people. I have since retired from " normal " work, and now just concentrate on entertaining people at the weekend.
