- Radio Garden provides listeners with the chance to pick any radio station from across the globe.
- People can tune in to the stations live just by choosing a green dot on the service’s map.
- The project was first introduced in 2016 and it has recently attracted a lot of online attention once again.
Remember the times when people actually listened to the radio? Well that has become much easier these days because everything’s already accessible online. With the internet, it’s easy to jump from one station to another – including those broadcasting from far-flung locations.
In fact, you can find them all in one place if you check out Radio Garden, a non-profit radio and digital research project that makes it possible for listeners to tune in to any radio station from across the world.
Radio Garden invites listeners to “explore live radio by rotating the globe.”
As you visit their website, you’ll see a Google Earth-like map which you can navigate by clicking and dragging the mouse. Each green dot represents a radio station so if you want to listen to a pop station in South Korea, a news program in Spain, or a talk show in Australia, you can do exactly that.
Based in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Radio Garden allows you to listen in live to a station of your choice.
Just pick a dot and the service will show you the name of the radio station, along with the local time in that area. You can even tap the heart icon to add a station to your favorites.
Thousands of stations now available at your fingertips.
According to Radio Garden’s official website:
“Radio Garden invites you to tune into thousands of live radio stations across the globe. By bringing distant voices close, radio connects people and places. 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.”
Naturally, netizens couldn’t help but be fascinated by the service.
If all that sounds amazing to you, you should go head over to their website right now.
