Find time today – or soon – to visit Radio.Garden, a single-serving website that re-broadcasts radio streams from around the globe. The beauty of this website is the intuitive, pan-and-scan crosshair to narrow in on a regional broadcast; the interaction operates well with mouse, or touchscreen devices. Also, radio! Can’t get enough of it, whether it’s from upper Finland, South Africa, or islands at sea:
By bringing distant voices close, radio connects people and places. Radio Garden allows listeners to explore processes of broadcasting and hearing identities across the entire globe. From its very beginning, radio signals have crossed borders. Radio makers and listeners have imagined both connecting with distant cultures, as well as re-connecting with people from ‘home’ from thousands of miles away – or using local community radio to make and enrich new homes.
