Radio Garden – Listen to Radio Stations From Around the World

Radio Garden invites you to tune into thousands of live radio stations across the globe.

By bringing distant voices close, radio connects people and places. From its very beginning, radio signals have crossed borders. Radio makers and listeners have imagined both connecting with distant cultures, as well as re-connecting with people from ‘home’ from thousands of miles away.

Radio Garden is based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Our dedicated team is hard at work tending to the garden on a daily basis. Planting seeds for the future and keeping the weeds at bay.

Here’s a couple places I tried out.

Note – I looked up some radio stations in my own neighborhood – Denver, Colorado, USA. What I heard was representative of what I’d hear in my car. So it’s all legit as far as I can tell.

Here’s a reddit post with people talking about some of the cool things they’ve found on Radio Garden:

Coworker: So where are you going for vacation?

Meretan94 So im crashlanding on this alien planets full of agressive hippies who HATE pollution. Ill create wmd just to burn down their homes.

RootsNextInKin All the while yelling “the factory must grow” while trying to optimize production lines far more complicated than anything I’d ever do on my job and while also trying really really hard not to fall asleep (again….) because this shouldn’t take too long anymore!

Nochnichtvergeben I’m going to travel the world, get to to know alot of people and integrate myself into their culture. I’ll help some of them sleep better and solve some problems. I intend to keep a low profile.

Desultory Amazon Reviews

This review will not be helpful to anyone but me. I took a memorable girl to see this play. We did not really pay attention to the play. A long time later, I saw this book and decided to see if it was really good. After reading it, I realized that the special part of the evening was the girl and not the play.
Woman in Mind
Alan Ayckbourn

I LOVE this book. Great for those days you need to hate life but love that you hate it.
How Late It Was How Late
James Kelman

The purchase was worth the great memories in college days.
I read this book in college for my African American Literature course, more than 25 years ago. Now my daughter attends the same college and had same professor for the African American Literature class. I lost my original copy in a hurricane. I purchased this copy and had my professor sign and write a few lines about me. It was a great excuse to meet him for coffee.
The Best of Simple
Langston Hughes

It held my interest, but a little too deep for me.
I like the descriptions of the whaling ship and industry.
BUT, come on, dudes don’t make long winded speeches when in life threatening situations.
Moby Dick
Herman Melville

The trick with Cassavetes is to enjoy what you see in front of you, moment to moment, and to stop waiting for something to happen. it already is happening. It’s not a plot twist or plot device, it’s not a message he’s trying to communicate to you intellectually (“see these people and how lost they are … this is my comment on middle-aged married life …”). With Cassavetes what he is always focused on is the human experience, human relationships, and those humans so happen to be his actors. So while you watch this movie, relax, have a drink or cigarette or whatever vice that you do, then do it, and watch a masterpiece of human emotions. Because if you’re not going to enjoy watching humans in all their complexity, if you don’t find people interesting, then don’t even bother watching this film. Go watch something else and then ask yourself maybe you should change your species … because if you don’t find humans interesting, you might as well be an ant or a flower or a computer.

Getting married. I don’t regret getting married, but if my wife were to pass away or our marriage otherwise ended, I doubt I would go through the dating and getting to know them and getting married and such again. I’m too old for that, and I’m not even that old.

Farted in a board meeting.

Leaned over to get a pen out of my purse on the floor. Completely unexpected BRRRRRAAAAAPPPPP

Shocked silence from a group of uptight executives.

Pepper spray, did it once on a dare. I can say with 100% conviction that it works exactly as intended.

I came home hammered one night in my early twenties and decided to cook some ramen noodles. Before I set down to eat the bowl I put some Daves insanity sauce on the noodles. I had to piss real bad, so I went and did my business, forgetting to wash my hands off beforehand. I wish I would’ve because I had gotten some of the hot sauce on my fingers when I opened the hot sauce bottle. A shower didn’t help. Hell I poured milk on my junk in a last ditch effort to ease this horrible pain. One of the dumbest things I’ve done.

Overheard Arguments – Lines From

I love this. My sister and I lived in Brooklyn together and we heard a fight outside our apartment. Our favorite line was “well, comprehend this, FUCK YOU!”

HeartachetoHouston
My wife and I repeat this comment we heard at Disney World a couple years ago. Some lady on her phone says, “I dont know what’s going on right now, but you better hang up the phone and pray to God!”

hhtebb
Duudee, when my family was all at Disneyworld back in like 08 this lady literally yelled at her kids who were running around

“Stop messing around you dildos!”

People like these are part of the Disney magic.

My husband and mine is, “I could cut off your arms and legs and you’d still keep crawling back to me!” It was yelled in a gas station parking lot.

galifxomatosis
Also in a gas station parking lot:

“YOU 👏 DON’T 👏 CARE 👏 ‘BOUT 👏 YO 👏 SELF 👏”

ThisFckinGuy
We’ve got one too! My wife got donuts for her office one morning and saw a homeless man on the drive in. She rolled down her window and offered him on and he screamed “DONT NOBODY WANT YO FUCKING DONUTS BITCH!” It was so early, and he yelled so loud and she was so hurt lmao

Donuts is now interchangeable with whatever it is we don’t want. I said it once at home and had some family overhear it and they went from mad at me to twice as confused when we were both laughing too hard to explain it.

Small Town Scandals


What was the biggest scandal in your small town? from AskReddit

All-Seeing Upvote
DARE officer selling drugs that were evidence.

aliensweare
My fifth grade DARE officer hit on me at a high school football game while I was still in high school and while we was on duty. I’d smoked and drank to pregame right before too. While flirting he asked if his DARE education worked. Buddy NO. On all counts.

We had a US Marshal come to health class my sophomore year of high school. He gave us Starbursts when we got questions right. It was awesome!

Mayor and several city councillors were taking kickbacks and bribes from demolition/construction/cleaning companies for clean up contracts after a hurricane, funded by FEMA.

The companies would give the mayor and city councillors like a couple grand, then the company would get FEMA funds in the tens of thousands to clean up/destroy a hurricane damaged property, only the address given to FEMA and listed on the contract were fake, or already cleared, so the companies got paid to do nothing.

College professor was found tied to a tree and burned months after he disappeared. Police ruled it a suicide

Our english teacher *raped half the boys track team in high school… AND slept with the vice principal… AND the gym teacher.

Everybody knew about it and we were all fairly certain one of the kids was the actual father of her kid, not her husband.

When I came home and told my dad that a teacher had been arrested for sleeping with students, he responded:

“So they finally caught up with Marcie? Two of my apprentices have her nudes and keep showing the rest of us when we’re trying to work.”

I don’t miss my hometown, lol.

Probably the Brown’s Chicken Massacre, where 7 people were murdered at the restaurant over a robbery. Case was cold for 9 years until the girlfriend on one of the murderers went to the police that he had confessed to her. He and his friend were eventually convicted through DNA and a confession.

venomousvee
There was an anesthetist, who worked at our local hospital and another hospital in a different town. He was rather well known among other doctors and known to be good at what he was doing. He only had a small problem with being addicted to pain killers and anaesthetics.

So to feed his addiction without getting caught he shot up part of his patients’ drugs before injecting the same needle into his patient.

Thus went unnoticed until it was discovered that over 60 of his patients got infected with hepatitis. And that he was the source for it.

He was fired and his license revoked as far as I know. But the hospital’s image still suffered quite a bit.
