We Are Back Night and Day Forever!

After less than one week of reduced hours of broadcasting, the early verdict is that it's not working. Quite simply we are losing masses of listeners and that is not good at all. So with IMMEDIATE effect we shall go back to twenty-four hours of non-stop music. We made a mistake, because what should be remembered is that there is a PARTY going on somewhere in the World all of the time, and they will always need the cool sounds of Sven. We apologise for our stupidity - please come back and remember from now on we will always be here - Love forever and a day - Sven Radio

The Magic Dream of Music

Here on the south coast of England we are slowly getting chilled out by an enormous bank of cloud that's hung around now for several days. Looking at our charts we see that it could be "cirrostratus nebulosus" with no variation in the Lard colour. Twitter informs us that it is pollution from the continent of Europe. This must be the Alpine air that our illustrious leaders tell us about? With the quality of our air deteriorating on a daily basis I do wonder what they breathe. People who suffer with any respiratory disorder should really stay indoors. Everyone, stepping out this morning, can probably smell the acrid vapour down here at ground level. Yet, the dearly loved Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, accuses those of us who stand up for clean air and water, has being 'doom and gloom' merchants. It seems that whilst our air quality is better that that of Beijing, and our water is above that of Bangladesh, then we should count ourselves 'lucky'

The Board at Sven Radio have been discussing the wisdom of broadcasting twenty-four hours a day, everyday of the week. Naturally under these circumstances there are a number of problems that arise, particularly those relating to updates, malware, and the general hiccups that occur in the 'streaming' world. We are in effect at the mercy of outside forces who broadcast the station.

We therefore, have decided to reduce the number of hours on air. This will be governed by Greenwich Mean Time, and will switch over to British Summer Time, in a few weeks.

Sunday to Thursday will be from 6.30am to 8.30pm

Friday and Saturday will stay at 24 hours broadcasting.

Apologies to our fans in Germany, United States, Russian Federation, Peru, Japan, Netherlands, Ukraine, Sweden, France, Canada, and Greece. 

The magic dream of music will always be with us here at Sven Radio. We shall continue to support the fight for a cleaner world, Every one of us is important. Love and Peace - Sven

The Informed Radio Station

Digital media is indeed a wonderful thing if you are trained in such matters. For the uninitiated however, it can prove to be a catalogue of disaster and frustration encountering the new 'lingo' and practices of the internet. I am very pleased to announce that after much hand wringing, head banging, and all round ignorance on my part the web page is now 'fixed'. Never in the field of human conflict have so many been buggered around, by so few, for so little.

So lay back, relax if you can, and enjoy the cool sounds of Sven Radio, still living in our Ambient, Chillout, New Age world, and still fighting for a cleaner, safer, and peaceful environment. Let us support all the organisations around the globe who struggle daily against Right-wing governments, corporate greed, austerity, stupidity, and disregard for common decency. Forget the politics of hate, "We shall overcome some day."

Stacks of new music by the way, from many talented people - much love in these troubled times, your ever present Sven the Redeemer. ^_^

In The Far Distance Passing Trains

It is night time, and I lay safe in the magic of my wood. I have come from the city ten miles away, to escape the pavements, the noise, and the pollution in its many forms. The screaming skulls that wave the guns are not here. There is just darkness and the swishing trees, and the sea rolls upon the shoreline.  "The big ship sails on the ally-ally-oh, on the last day of September."

In the far distance passing trains that no longer set the night on fire, carry passengers who sit silently clicking on small windows that take them to a corporate world.

I think about being free. I make an inner world that is better than the cruel reality. I induce autism to escape the towering buildings, they hold for me so many shadows. 

My greatest wish is to sit in peace and breathe the fresh morning air, salted by a thousand miles of clean seas. Gulls squawk and dive and feed upon the morning tide.

                                               "Don't cry" I whisper, "Tears will kill us."

All Quiet On The Western Road




"The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not mov'd with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils;
The motions of his spirit are dull as night,
And his affections dark as Erebus;
Let no such man be trusted."

                                 William Shakespeare
