AJ - Online Radio AJ Home

Content updated June 26 2008.

Online radio shows, live or archived, is a pretty cool idea. The listing below is intended to point to relevant music for the acid-jazzer. I try to avoid listing general music shows, or too local stuff. Also, it has to be online, not just a regular radio broadcast.

Broke&Beat radio.[http://www.brokenbeatradio.com/]
This is a weekly broadcast show out of Philly, called Broke&Beat radio. Good feed. Done by aj listees Argo and '99'. One of the best online stations for sure.
Plenty of shows available, plus the live feed of course. Many really nice shows! Gilles Peterson's Worldwide is available here. It there only was a download possibility...
Radio Nova.[http://www.novaplanet.com/]
The french Radio Nova station, plus much more. Fresh sound and lots of 'ethno'. I'm quite convinced this is the best radio station available anyware! Simply the best - even if you sometimes really get tired of hearing french ads...
I especially like the new Compost (with Michael Rütten) show here. Brilliant. More big names: gilb'r of Versatile records has a show here. Most shows are good, not an easy thing at all. Quite consistent selection too.
Lime Sorbet.[http://www.citrona.net/sorbet.htm]
Citrona Recording's weekly selections.
No Turn Unstoned.[http://dj.polishedsolid.com/]
A weekly live radio show by DJ Polished Solid
Secret Agent.[http://www.somafm.com/]
The soundtrack for your stylish, mysterious, dangerous life. For Spies and PIs too! Plenty of groove, in an old school way. Listener-supported, commercial-free, underground/alternative radio broadcasting from San Francisco.
Illvibe Collective Radio.[http://www.illvibe.net/]
Streaming shows from a DJ crew out of Philadelphia. Two shows, one more on the hiphop side, the other more of a nujazz mix. I'm new to these shows, but the eclectic show seems good so far.
department deluxe radio.[http://radio.department-deluxe.org/]
Listee Jan Siegmund plays a mix of jazz, more in the dancefloor jazz sense. Good selection. I sometimes get a (too) low bandwidth connection but it works most of the time.
Nieuw op deze site: Output Webradio. Hier kun je 24 uur per dag, 7 dagen per week een bijzondere mix van mooie muziek beluisteren. Iedere dag heeft zijn eigen thema en live-concerten. Ok, I don't understand Dutch either, but they have live feed 24-7, and so far I have heard only good music here. Every Monday they feature jazzy, funky soulful grooves and a live concert.
Urban Landscapes.[http://www.urbanlandscapes.org/]
Urban Landscapes is a weekly broadcast (by aj listee Velanche) showcasing only good music. Styles include soulful downtempo, deep house, nu-jazz, broken beats, future soul, Latin vibes, and funked-up tastiness. Good playlist and download section.
Royal Groove.[http://www.royalgroove.org]
Royal Groove started in 1997 as a regular radioshow at a local station in the Netherlands. With an unlimited enthusiasm, a couple of selfproduced breakbeats and a bunch a funk and soul records Gibbs and DeLuca made a weekly show. Nice feed and download possibility.
Featuring on rotation: Marc 4hero, Somatik, G-Moist, Hopper, Biz-E, Marshmello, DJ Rumble, DJ Rebel, Logik, Capital Town Kru, Dez P, Starside, DJ Virus plus many special guests! Good selection, good variation. Sadly (because the music can be really nice here) the DJs too often go mental on the jingle thing: some shows play more station jingles than actual music! Come on guys, leave that button alone! It's getting ridiculus.
Globalhouse Connection.[http://www.globalhouseconnection.com/]
Lars Behrenroth & Constantin Groll airs deephouse, jazz, soul, hip-hop in a weekly 2 hour show. Excellent download links to improve sound quality.
KXJZ acidjazz show.[http://www.capradio.org/programs/acidjazz/default.aspx]
KXJZ (Sacramento, California) from 10:00 PM till Midnight local time on Saturdays. Old school, New school...the soulful experience of Acid Jazz. Looks ok, by looking at the playlists.
Solar Radio.[http://www.solarradio.com/]
Started out as pirate station in London in the 70s... later on re-incarnated under many other names and with lots of people behiind the scene. Now they are back with true 'soul music radio', live on the net. Just brilliant!
Kiss 100.[http://www.kissonline.co.uk/]
A classic London station. I find the morning show especially entertaining.

Tilos Radio (Radio Forbidden).[http://tilos.hu/]
They only have a Hungarian version, which can be quite strange... check out the many Keyser & Shuriken mixes, see the HANGTAR link. Excellent stuff!
