This is Brighton, England, and the home of Sven Radio. Many artists from around the world appear here on numerous occasions to give light and enjoyment to many thousands. We are one small flicker in a tiny corner. We're a non-stop stream of sounds that cover a pretty wide range of what could be termed off-beat music. We love doing this so much it's totally free to listen - so please share our good will and spread the word. Love Sven

Have The Lunatics Really Taken Over The Asylum?
Gone from the Rio agreement is a commitment to end subsidies
to the fossil fuel industry. Gone is any clear commitment to protect our
oceans from over-fishing and pollution. The money needed to pay for clean
energy, and to ensure that the growing world population has access to decent
food and clean water, is no-where to be seen. Again, our leaders have
reminded us that whilst cash can be found to pursue wars and to rescue banks,
nothing is left to help billions of people out of poverty or protect the
ecosystems upon which human life ultimately depends.
It seems once more that the World is heading for a nervous breakdown, its owners are driving it like madmen, when will those that have the money and the will-power see sense and stop the insanity?
