The Chill Factor…
With Colin Hanslip
The most relaxing songs on the radio…
Colin’s radio career started in 1991 with Radio Glen in Southampton University, having been banned from his local station, Ocean Sound, for winning too many prizes! He got to see their studios and knew he wanted to have a go at it himself.
Through contacts made at the University, this lead to many short term stations in Southampton, and a three year spell on cable station Max FM in the city in the 1990s. Since then, he has worked on many FM and online stations both as a presenter and offering technical support. The Chill Factor has been running since 2007, when it started on a community station in Hampshire, and is now broadcast on many stations around the world, including Delux Radio!
The Chill Factor is all about the songs that will help you get totally relaxed, from acoustic versions of songs you know, through to some seriously chilled out instrumentals. Whether it’s Van Halen, Kylie Minogue or David Gray, if there is a chilled out version of their songs, we will play it. Of course, we also feature a number of tracks from artists best known for mellow material as well, such as Enya, Dido and Eva Cassidy.
When not broadcasting, Colin’s interests include travel, and a 1992 Ford Granada which can be seen at car shows throughout the summer.
