Here are two diverse but (in my mind) equally enthralling online radio station tips for you.
Under the Pavement is a weekly show on community station ALL FM. You can hear their cloudcast at Mixcloud. www.mixcloud.com/underthepavement
Branded as anarchy on the airwaves, Under the Pavement presenters David and Spike have a blend of music and chat, covering grass roots activism and an eclectic range of alternative music.
Across the pond, Radio Canada International may have been unceremoniously booted off of shortwave by Prime Minster Stephen Harper and the CBC, but The Link programme is hanging on for a 30 minute weekly online show.
