Radio Sylvia broadcasts climate-friendly

We are getting greener! Our 192k main stream now runs on a server of a Finnish data center that obtains its energy from wind and hydro power. The other streams (128k and 64k) remain unchanged - for quite some time they are already hosted in a data center running on renewable energy.

Our old 192k stream has been switched off on 31st May. In case you now have problems receiving our main stream, feel free to contact us via Additional tips can be found on our "FAQ" page.


The next "Radiorandale" will come on the air on 3rd June at 6 p.m. CET with the following programme schedule:

  • 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. CET: Blackout with Mark Andersen
  • 8 p.m. - 10 p.m. CET: Pluggin' Baby Radio Show with Emma Scott
  • 10 p.m. - 11 p.m. CET: New Music
  • 11 p.m. - Midnight CET: Music from Germany

You can hear the complete programme once again on 17th June from 6 p.m. to midnight CET. For further details see our schedule.

We are getting lots of submissions and enquiries from bands and artists, who would like to be played on Radio Sylvia. We listen to your music and add it to our playlist if we like it and it matches our format. But due to time constraints, we cannot reply to every enquiry. Thanks for your understanding!


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.
