With webcasting we all have the opportunity to sample radio stations from all over the globe, but it isn’t every day that there’s a chance to listen to a curated selection of international stations. The organizers of the International Radio Festival hand-picked more than 30 radio stations for inclusion in their festival taking place September 5 through 11th in Zurich, Switzerland.
During the festival, representatives from stations as far-flung as India, Paris, Moscow and New York City will be presenting programming over the Swiss terrestrial airwaves, online, and on cable throughout Switzerland. Among the 30 or so participating stations are three from North America: Canadian campus-community radio station CJLO AM (Concordia University, Montreal), online-only community radio station East Village Radio (New York City), and commercial radio station Wild 94.9 FM (San Francisco).
A few of the other stations slated to appear at the festival include Ghetto Radio (Nairobi), 102 FM (Tel Aviv), MotorFM (Berlin), and Obo & Hobos (Moscow). There will also be a keynote panel discussion about the state of radio internationally, music performances, and other events.
