Subversive Sounds
for Freaks of All Ages.


We were sick of radio. It died a long time ago when the corporations bought all the little guys and DJ'z we grew up with. Then the internet gave us a stream of tunes 'curated' by a machine. We are weirdos. We have souls. We have ideas and opinions. We love music. WholesomeRadio is our gift to you.
