Radio hasn’t gone away, you know – it is just evolving. Radio Garden is an amazing web app that lets you discover a world of radio.
Radio is strangely robust in this time of media decimation. Yes, it is threatened by podcasts and all kinds of video platforms but radio is a doughty beast that plods on as the shells rain down.
Most of us who grew up with radio will remember a time when what station you listened to defined what tribe you belonged to.
Enter the Radio Garden
Radio Garden is an ingenious web app that lets you navigate the airwaves on a Google Earth like canvas.
It is complete with the beautiful crackle and hiss of scanning the airwaves.
Whether there are stations in the North Pole region or western Australia, the Outer Hebrides or urban London, a whole world of radio is discoverable at Radio Garden.
