Welcome to 986themix, KkMX. We are an internet station offering a MIX of music from all decades and genres! Our aim is to keep all content family friendly as much as possible so that anyone can listen.
We have 4 different servers for your listening pleasure: Channel 1, which features automation and most of our live shows: Channel 2, for extra programming plus additional shows: and Channel 3, featuring magnatune and Independent artists. Magnatune is a label that promotes independent music artists and has released over 1500 albums in a variety of genres from classical to jazz. More servers may be added as we attract new DJs and dedicated listeners.
Miss your favorite show? No problem: go to our podcast. page where you can find all show's going back a month. You'll never have to miss a show again!!
If you want to have closer interaction with the DJs or get up-to-date information on what's coming up on 986themix, then keep reading to learn about our multiple options such as the listeners list, Skype, TeamTalk, and much more!!
We have shifted to account based users on our TeamTalk server. If you would like tojoin us on TT, please send an email to and include your name, desired user name, and password.Please note that you should double check the info you provide as we paste it exactly without any modifications.
During some of our live show's you can find us on TeamTalk. We also stream most of the show's when we are on the server so that smart phone users can listen to the show and chat with us at the same time. Feel free to hang out even when no show is on. We'd love to have you join us! In order that your experience is a pleasant one, we ask that you please observe the following guidelines.
- Do not share your user account with anybody. If they need access, then please have them ask for there own account.
- There will be no sexual talk of any type. This includes conversations/jokes about sex, making direct or indirect advances towards anyone online, or anything of that nature!
- Do not repeatedly come on and off the TeamTalk server. It’s fine if you come on and off once to see who is online, but don’t do it again five minutes later. If you are experiencing technical difficulties, please either text or send a private message to one of the admins or anyone on the server.
- Do not do anything intentional to disrupt a dj or show that is currently in progress. This means, do not try to distract a DJ when he/she is talking on air by verbal or text means. We also encourage DJs to mute TeamTalk when doing Voice Breaks. Also, if a show is streaming on TeamTalk, do not use your media stream to override the show.
- Only channels that are designated as on air may be transmitted on a show or recording for later use. Anyone who does not want to be heard on a live show should remain silent during talk breaks and inform the Dj that they intend to remain silent. Private show channels are to be considered on air channels. Channels such as the main 986themix channel or ones that do not have the on-air designation may not be transmitted under any circumstances regardless of people’s consent.
- Please use headphones when coming on the server. This is important whether you are on the computer or phone. If you are unable to use headphones, please switch to push to Talk mode so that others on the server do not hear loud background noise or echoes. Also, when not using headphones and push to talk is enabled, please keep your volume at an extremely low level for the same reasons.
If you break the rules, then the following will occur:
- First, you will be given an official warning by a present admin. A warning is not official until given verbally and written in a private TT message. It will be clearly stated that this is an official warning and not a mere request.
- Second violation will be removing you from the channel. Do not come back in until you have corrected the problem.
- Third violation you will be kicked from the server.
- Fourth violation will result in a ban. We will allow a one-time appeal after 15 days. Violation of the first rule may result in getting banned sooner if we feel people’s comfort and safety are at risk. Banns resulting from the first rule cannot be appealed.
