Disco. New Wave. Techno.
Retro can mean different things to different people, and depends on where and when they grew up. Here at Pure Retro Radio, we’ve taken a long look back at how terrestrial radio stations operated in the 70s and 80s and are here to correct a few wrongs. Genre integration. We’ll call it that. Our playlists take into consideration the various genres and sub-genres of music that did (or didn’t) make it onto the mainstream airwaves, as well as a continent’s worth of new songs that radio programmers refused to play. The goal is to give a grounded, wide-reaching variety of music to our listeners. So when you listen to Pure Retro Radio you’ll hear all the hits you love, and more.
In addition to righting those racial and xenophobic wrongs, we’ve worked hard to create interesting, dynamic original programming, and shows that go the extra mile to highlight a beloved genre (R&B, Alternative, Lounge, Schlager, Top-40). It’s all right here, available at the click of a few buttons.
We bring passion, affection, and a strong desire to make your listening experience a positive and memorable one.
