At the forefront of contemporary national air waves, Radio station FM4 is home to shows like “La Boum de Luxe”, featuring Patrick Pulsinger, “Swound Sound System” of former heavy-weight champion Sugar B., “Sunny Side Up” and the early-bird “Morning Show” (yes, it’s in English), among others.
You won’t be subjected to any Top 40 hits here. Rather, the radio station works like crash course for any upcoming music journalist, specializing in alternative music from down-to-earth indie rock to experimental electro and blaxpoitation.
Apart from its ambitious line up, FM4 expresses their we-love-our-audience attitude by giving back with summer festivals in various Austrian locations and selected club events. Local legends like DJ DSL, DJ Makossa, Electric Indigo, Tina 303 or Peter Kruder have all contributed to the sound party.
It’s best listening to the broadcast at night. With less—sometimes, exasperatingly thorough—talks and a heavier focused on a music and entertainment connoisseur’s needs, the radio station also plays an eclectic mix during the summer: free-spirited Radio Favelinha blares almost live from Rio de Janeiro every Friday at 22:00, just in time for the weekend.
