ideally shorter sets such as quick 30 minute sets .. ..as I hardly ever get 2 hours on a stretch without some work ..

Although this post is now 2 years old, it still is valid I guess...
I like the 2h sets (or even more), please let me explain why,
Personally I like build ups and I am pretty sure some do too, starting off nice 132-134 with vocals and building up to a good uplifting 140+ bpm. That way, together with nice transitions, a single hour is ~well~ somehow the limit. My own mixes always end up being minimally 1h30min. If I make it shorter and I would just have to remove beauties...
Surely can be done, since it is currently often done on AH.FM, BUT it is perhaps cutting on songs or missing the beauty of their productions or you just skip slower or faster tracks somewhere to make it fit in...
It is no longer the flow, it is to fit...
And also please please cancel sets containing too much electro/dubstep, I respect each ones preference I even listen to it some moments too and sometimes like some works. BUT I think these genres have enough proper resources and sites where that genre can be found. Afterhours is known to be the best in Trance and Progressive so please keep it that way. Lately I cannot always say that (in a few you can even hardly find any trance left). Lucky there are many fine artists that make the title stand as a solid rock
And also why not a goa/psy trance, not too much, an hour or a few per week I wouldn't mind. Balearic bwa same (tho personally fasta uplift flowing, flying, hmm... origins of trance were mostly fast)
Another idea, why not oldschool sets (music from under year 2000 please)? Hmmm godlike that was
PS: Last but not least since Lazarus said he wouldn't mind having longer, please extend his sets (I surely wouldn't mind voted +1)
Nevertheless, AH.FM still owns, thanks !!
There are several shows which are quite annoying to listen to, if they continue to support more "nu-electro" sounds than there's supposed to be. Talking about this issue, replacing these shows with some new ones (including "pure trance and progressive") would be the best solution IMO. Otherwise, it can get difficult to change the musical interest of concerned DJs (in no particular order):
Kris O'Neil, Johan Gielen, Jochen Miller, Marcus Schössow (...to name a few)
Some ideas for new shows:
Jacob Henry - Silk Royal Showcase (one of the best broadcasts I've ever encountered)
Jaytech - Jaytech Music Podcast (always perfect 2-hour sets)
Arctic Moon - Afterworld (very popular on Mixcloud)
Katadunkass - Electronic Spectrum (should get more attention)
By the way, I recently submitted a residency application.
This concept also fits to the shows mentioned above.
Simon Patterson - Digital Showdown (massive tracks every time)
John '00' Fleming - Global Trance Grooves (all-time favourite)
Basil O'Glue - Momentum (great addition to Markus, Rick Valentine and other Coldharbour-ish shows)
Airwave - Progrez (nearly inevitable)
Thanks for sharing your ideas with the community, soundbarrier!
Directly on-topic: The current show length is perfect now, doesn't have to change!

From just lurking here, it's pretty diverse. You can hear music (EDM music, of course) of any style here and that's great.
