Do you love Cowes? Then why not listen to I love Cowes radio broadcasting 24 hours a day from the home of yachting. All you need to do is click on the play button below.

If you have an Alexa smart speaker you need to install the “I love Cowes” skill. Then just say “Alexa, start I love Cowes” whenever you want to listen.

On other smart speakers you’ll need to install the MyTunerRadio app and ask for “I love Cowes”.

You can listen on your mobile device by installing the MyTunerRadio app from your app store and searching for “I love Cowes”.

Listening in your business

We encourage you to play I love Cowes radio in your shop or other business as it means that more people will hear about what’s on offer in Cowes. The simplest way is with a smart speaker such as Alexa. All you’ll need to do is say “Alexa, start I love Cowes” and your shop will be filled with music and local information. An Echo Dot costs about £50.

Alternatively you could use a laptop or even an old mobile phone!

Please note that you’ll need a PRS licence to play music in your business premises but that’s the case whatever you want to play, even Spotify or a simple radio in the corner! You can find out about music licences from PPLPRS.

Promoting local businesses and organisations

If you’re a local business or organisation then we are here to promote what you do and encourage people to come to our towns. We do this in a number of ways.

  • Recorded interviews about your business
  • Promotion of any events you are running
  • A limited number of paid adverts
  • Sponsorship of competitions
  • Coverage of special events in the towns, live and recorded
  • Don’t forget we’ll also promote you on our website, ilovecowes.com

If you’re interested in any of these then get in touch and tell us how we can promote you and remember that some of this is free and there are big discounts for Cowes Business Association and East Cowes Business Association members!

Sponsorship and advertising

We’re not a big commercial station (yet!) so we don’t have loads of adverts but we do need to try and cover our costs to survive. We have limited opportunities for sponsorship and advertising on I love Cowes radio so please get in touch if you’re interested in helping us to spread the word about Cowes and East Cowes.

Privacy

As with most online radio stations, we collect the IP address of where you listen from so that we can report how many people listen to our service for music licensing purposes. That’s the only data we collect and we only keep it for as long as we need it for reports.

If you get in touch with us by email, phone or on social media then we’ll keep the details you send us so we can get back to you but we’ll always delete them if you don’t want us to keep them. We don’t use these contact details for sending out marketing, you’ll need to sign up to our mailing list in the side bar if you want to hear from us.

Basically we’re not interested in your data, we just want you to come to Cowes! If you want to know more then get in touch.
