DJ Shows

You can text the studio at 79008 or call 1-888-946-2471.  Our DJs pick up as many calls as they can.  We’re not able to transfer to the Studio from other Air1 phone lines. You can check all our DJ pages and bios on our website, just click here.

We don’t have transcripts but sometimes our DJ will post special content after their show.  The best place to check is their page or Facebook posts.  Just click here to our DJ pages; you’ll see our social media connections there.

Click on Careers on our website (this is a link under “About Us”).  All our openings are posted on our website.

Since we are a music station, we keep our focus on the songs we play.  We don’t include long form shows or interviews in our program.

We are live, so calling the Studio (1-888-946-2471) is for on air purposes and all calls are recorded and may be aired.

You can email a DJ but they aren’t always able to respond personally.   The best way is to reach out is through social media, all the DJs have links on their page If that’s not an option you can use our Contact Us link to send an email.  Our DJs aren’t always able to respond personally but they appreciate your notes.

First, thanks for listening, we’re glad you do. The Bible says “iron sharpens iron” and we take this to heart.  We aren’t able to respond to all feedback but we want you to know it is read and reviewed by our Programming Leadership.  Our mission and focus is to provide content that encourages our listeners in their relationship with Jesus.  If something was said that gave a different impression then we apologize. We appreciate your prayers as we go forward. You can always call or email us if you’d like your message shared with our Programming team.

There are events all year long so we hope that even if a ticketed event doesn’t work out this time, maybe there will be other options in the future. Concerts and tours are usually held in a large center or arena to accommodate larger audiences. The venue is contracted with a ticket vendor. There are some limited opportunities where we’ve been able to offer promotional discount codes, but these will always be shared on air or on our website if they are available. There are some venues that may reduce extra fees if you purchase in person; this is something you can always inquire about by calling the ticket sales office.

Our DJ teams keep a full schedule here at Air1. We aren’t able to offer services or bookings through our station.

Mobile App

Go to the Google Play Store
The bandwidth that the mobile app uses varies depending on your connection quality. At maximum quality, we use a 64K stream so at the most, data usage is about 29 MB per hour.
The sleep timer is located inside the mini-player. When you are streaming, the mini-player appears at the bottom of the app. Tap to open the mini-player and you will see the Timer displayed at the bottom left of the screen. Timer options are 15, 30, 45 minutes and 1 hour.
We know how nice it would be to set an alarm and wake up to Air1 music playing. While this is not currently a feature in the app, we hope to be able to include it soon.
You can start listening to music by tapping the play button on the main player. As long as music is playing, the mini-player will be visible on the app. When you stop the music, the mini-player disappears so that you can focus on other areas of the app and not be distracted by the mini-player. Resume the music stream by simply tapping play on the main player.
We have introduced a new feature to favorite and unfavorite songs. You can see and manage your list of favorite songs in the "More" tab of the app. From the song list, you can access the artist profile, lyrics (if available), play a sample (if available), share the song information, remove favorite, or search on Spotify.
Right now, favoriting a song simply creates a list of favorite songs for you to reference. In the future we will look at other ways to enrich your experience, such as showing news and articles about your favorite artists.
Right now, you can favorite songs you like, but the app does not currently offer the ability to request songs. Favoriting a song simply creates a list of favorite songs for you to reference.
We take prayer requests very seriously. Therefore, it is important to verify the authenticity of our audience that is praying for others. As a feature of the app, you need to create an account so that prayer activity can be shown. Then we can show you how many days you have prayed, how many people you have prayed for and allow you to set a daily prayer goal. With an account, you can also see a record of your prayer submissions.
Praying for others is an important part of our ministry. Our staff meets every day to pray for each and every prayer request. In addition, our Air1 audience is filled with prayer warriors who also pray for others that have submitted prayer. When you sign-in to the app, you can see how many people prayed for your request.
After 5 minutes of inactivity, the app will stop fetching new song information and show the Air1 default image instead of the Artist image. This is done to maintain a high level of performance. When the music stream is not playing, you can "pull down" from the top of the Radio tab to refresh the current song and last played song tiles.
Yes. When the music stream is not playing, you can "pull down" from the top of the Radio tab to refresh the current song and last played song tiles.

Yes, we want to know about that! Please contact us with as much info as you can provide on the type of device you’re running our app on and what you tapped before the app crashed.


Although Air1 does not do regular daily/hours newscasts, we do keep listeners informed during emergency type events both nationally and locally when warranted and for as long as needed. Additionally, we feature a healthy dose of daily trending stories digitally on the Air1.com news page which includes a search option here.

Air1 researches and reports on stories from many different sources. These include the Associated Press, other major media outlets, Christian news sources, local community news, and listener submitted news tips. All news items are examined before sharing.

For more information about news stories, visit Air1’s News page. Our News team also provides updates through Facebook and Twitter.

As a ministry, Air1 doesn’t endorse political parties, issues, or candidates. We share factual headline news updates without bias or editorials.

Air1 is committed to connecting listeners to vital news and information. Closer Look provides that weekly connection. As a radio network, we are required by FCC law (Federal Communications Commission) to broadcast programs that educate listeners on issues affecting their city, state or nation. As a ministry, Air1 fulfills that obligation with public affairs shows that spotlight topics listeners care about, like health, safety, lifestyle, family and faith.

In addition, we offer weekly Closer Looks for local Air1 cities, on our individual stat ions, identifying and addressing important community issues.

If an area was at 100% last fund drive, it will often lose 20 to 30% of its financial support due to donors relocating to another area, loss of employment, family changes, financial changes and sometimes catastrophic events. The goal you hear on the air is the percentage to get back to 100% funding.

If funding is not met, then our EMF Board of Directors will meet to determine how to allocate the resources given. Financial decisions are thoughtfully and prayerfully made.

It’s awesome you want to serve God through music ministry. Artists have given advice sharing that the best thing to do is start wherever you are, sing or play your instrument and don’t stop, especially in church or other ministries.  We don’t have an entry program or special connections through Air1 but we hope you’ll check artist pages for tips, write record labels and in the meantime stay involved.

If you'd like to submit a song, you can send it in mp3 format to submissions@air1.com. Choose the one song that you think represents your best work.  Though we will be unable to keep you updated or provide an evaluation, our programming team will contact you if they are able to use your song.
