There is a map of the world that allows you to listen to every radio station on the planet

Radio Anxiety

Because who doesn’t want to listen to Alaska’s only radio station while sitting in the heart of Sandton!

 

Johannesburg, South Africa – We have stumbled across a pretty cool website that allows you to listen to any local radio station across the globe, from the comfort of wherever you are.

We thought you would love to access this handy tool, especially if you are feeling homesick or away from home for any reason. You can tune in and hear the voices of your favourite presenters. We jumped around a few stations, and there are some goodies all over the world, from oldies rock to classical and more.

How does it work?

Spin the globe to the country or area you wish to access and then click on the green orbs (the gardens) to jump between stations. Sometimes you may encounter a little static, in that case, just move the globe around a little until the signal clears.

“By bringing distant voices close, radio connects people and places. From its very beginning, 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.

Radio Garden allows listeners to tune into live radio across the entire globe.”

Radio Garden was originally commissioned in 2016 by the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in the context of an exhibition for the international research project Transnational Radio Encounters. The project was created, designed and developed by Studio Puckey & Moniker.

It was earlier this year that Jonathan Puckey turned Radio Garden into a company.

Together with a small team, he is working on the future of Radio Garden by implementing new features, better stability and most importantly simplicity. As it is still new, your favourite station might not be available, but the website allows submissions too so your station can be added.

You can listen to the various stations here or search “radio garden” on the App Store or Google Play.
