Newtown Radio

There are no hits on Brooklyn's Newtown Radio, just new and obscure sounds from underground and emerging artists based around the world. Tastemaking curators including musicians, music bookers, label managers and editors from places like Brooklyn Vegan, Ad Hoc and Impose magazine provide a steady stream of undiscovered music on 35 weekly programs airing seven days a week. The station also records in-studio sessions -- featured acts have included DIIV and Sky Ferreira -- that are presented online by Noisey.
