Who We Are

Radio Sylvia is run by a dedicated team of long-time radio and music enthusiasts and can look back on an eventful history. After its foundation in July 1977, the station was on the air as a pirate for many years on FM as well as long, medium and short wave. In January 2009 we returned and are now broadcasting legally from our studios in Hamburg via internet and short wave.

Our aim has always been (and still is today) to provide a musical alternative to the omnipresent musical mishmash. We focus on music beyond the mainstream and play tracks that are never or only very rarely heard on other stations.

Radio Sylvia Supports New Bands

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