Jazz, rock, hip hop, world music. Every music genre has its own programme or its own channel. Narrow-mindedness is still around and even more so it seems. High time to radically tear down some walls. Free Radicals is an eclectic programme which only has one motto: good music.

So today an hour of ‘noise music’ but from the last century. ‘Alternative’ as it was known at the time.
