A few days ago, SWLing Post reader LondonShortwave posted a playlist on his blog; it’s a great playlist of music he’s been exposed to via shortwave radio broadcasters over the years. I was quite inspired by this playlist (of all absolutely brilliant songs, by the way), not to mention, by the clever concept.
So this morning I jotted down a few artists and songs I’ve also discovered via shortwave radio. Here are a just a few I could find on YouTube:
Ariane Moffatt’s “Montreal,” via former CBC North Quebec Service:
Istanbul Oriental Ensemble’s “Burhan Öçal” via Voice of Greece:
Ania’s cover of “Strawberry Fields Forever” via the Polish Radio External Service:
Novika’s “I Depend on You” also via the Polish Radio External Service:
Have you made any music discovery via shortwave radio? If so, please feel free to comment.
