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

Sunshine On A Rainy Day

Another miserable morning here on the south-coast of England, with heavy rain, and a dull, overcast sky. But hey guys and girls that doesn't stop our beating hearts. We still dance and chill here in the heart of Sven-Land in up town Brighton, East Sussex. So why allow the doldrums into your life when we have over 3,000 artists from around the World contributing their music night and day, and all for your pleasure? This fantastic collection is available on your mobile, iPad, iPhone, and PC whenever your working, resting, and playing. We are the ultimate station to the stars, and will make all your dreams come true. Love and peace - The Sven

Sheltering Skies

I still 'dig' the music that we stream, which I know sounds rather odd considering I actually chose what's played. I keep discovering whole ranges of intriguing combinations from a mass of fabulous groups. Recent examples are Bluetech, Boozoo Bajou, Nightmares On Wax, Night Smothers, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Spacecraft, Liquid Motion, Euphonic Traveller, and so many more. To me it's a complete learning curve, which I thoroughly enjoy when I find outstanding music waiting at the end of it. So many stars, so much beauty, it never ceases to making it's contribution to the uniqueness of what is Sven Radio. Stay Warm

It's A Long and A Dusty Road

The past couple of weeks have proven to be extraordinarily difficult from a technical point of view. We have unfortunately suffered at the hands of others. The problem in the main is that we are at the mercy of our Internet Servers. These are the people that Stream the music of Sven Radio around the World. So, if for some weird and wonderful reason they change our settings at very short notice, we are thrown into a situation whereby our many listeners are suddenly disconnected, and there's no way of keeping them informed.

I'm pleased to announce that we are now 'back on air.' Mind you we are still having to update the many directories, radio links, and web sites that Sven Radio is involved with. All I can do is ask for your patience and fortitude in what's been a great setback for this station, but like so many before, you cannot keep a good station down.

The news is that we shall be bringing you our Ambient, Chillout, and New Age Music as per usual, and quite naturally continuing the fight against Fracking, the Oil Industry, Chemical Companies, and GMO products. Our principles will never change

'Dover Beach'
By Matthew Arnold 1822-1888

"For the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land in dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight
When ignorant armies clash by night."
