Radio Garden Lets You Instantly Tune into Radio Stations Across the Entire Globe


A pretty cool project.

Pick a place on the globe. Any place. Then tune in and hear what’s playing on the radio in that location.

The service is called Radio Garden, and here’s what it’s essentially all about:

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.

While Radio Garden lets you tune into broadcasts across different geographies, another service previously featured here on OC–Radiooooo–lets you hear radio broadcasts across time. That is, historical broadcasts.

Between the two services, you’ll be covered spatially and temporally. What more could you want?

Update: Radio Garden is now apparently available as an app on Google and Apple.
