Similar in vision to the Rock in Opposition movement of the late 1970s, Radio in Opposition challenges the standards of the music industry and the radio world. RiO features new releases, topical interviews, and on-air performances from the deepest reaches of the musical realm. Spanning genres on a nightly basis, the show focuses on independent output from raw black metal to indie hip-hop.

RiO began in March of 2009, utilizing a public radio space to give lesser known artists the chance to gain exposure in a professional atmosphere. Live interviews and on-air performances have included Kayo Dot, Woods of Ypres, Planning for Burial, Vindensang, Woe, Time Columns, Gholas, Dante Bucci, JE double F, Deadhorse, Ominous Black, and more.

Radio in Opposition // 17.05.12 // Produce. Communicate. Transport. Destroy.

This is the first show from the home studio. My microphone is a tin can. Just kidding. The voice overs are short but the music is where the meat is. Please enjoy at adequate volumes.

Radio in Opposition // 03.05.12 // Hometown Pride

This is my last show broadcast live on WDIY in Allentown. From now on, RiO is a Subcity exclusive. In light of that, this show is all local bands that supported me in getting RiO off the ground. Enjoy.
