We are getting lots of submissions and enquiries from bands and artists, who would like to be played on Radio Sylvia.

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 shortwave. In January 2009 we returned and are now broadcasting legally from our studios in Hamburg via internet and shortwave.
Our aim has always been (and still is today) to provide a musical alternative to the omnipresent musical mishmash. Details about our music format can be found here.
