Those Who Do Not Move Do Not Notice Their Chains

Although it is a beautiful sunny morning, already there's a hint of chilliness in the air, which to me signifies the onset of autumn. Here in the UK we've had what has been the wettest summer on record. It is without doubt attributable to climate change. There are of course many articles that explain fully the circumstances as to why there are both droughts and flooding. Masses of scientific evidence accumulated from around the globe from leading climatologists, meteorologists, physicists, biologists, and scientists point towards the terrible consequences of denying the existence of man-made climate change.

Kumi Naidoo writes: "The hooligans, the real hooligans, are those CEO's and other leaders of the fossil fuel industry who are not prepared to accept that, in fact, they have to change."

"We need a global programme whose purpose is to leave most coal and oil and gas reserves in the ground, while developing new sources of power and reducing the amazing amount of energy we waste." - George Monbiot on the IPCC

"More than 700 chemicals are used in the fracking process and many more of them disturb hormone function. With fracking on the rise, populations may face greater heath risks from increased endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure. Water samples from drilling sites in the US with a record of spillages had levels of the chemicals high enough to interfere with the body's responses to male hormones" - Doctor Susan Nagel, University of Missouri

I could go on and give dozens of example of toxic waste from fracking. The billions of gallons pumped into rivers, lakes, aquifers, that have polluted the land and killed so much beauty. So why have the Tory Government axed money for research into renewable energy, and given massive tax concessions to the oil and fracking industry?

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 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. ^_^

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 whether you're working, resting, or playing. 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
