This is Radio Sylvia

Free and Alternative Radio since 1977

We can look back on a long history. Founded in 1977, Radio Sylvia was initially broadcasting as a pirate for many years on FM as well as long, medium and short wave. Since January 2009 we are legally active via the internet.

We are the Alternative to the Musical Mainstream

Then and now it is our objective to separate ourselves from the omnipresent musical mishmash. We present a unique mixture of Punk, Metal and Alternative - straightforward, professional and getting to the point. On Radio Sylvia we play tracks that are never or only very rarely heard on other stations.

Radio Sylvia supports Innovative Bands

We are always searching for new and little-known bands and artists. Please find all details on band applications here.
