Introducing Dirty Bristow Radio

As a magazine, Dirty Bristow works backwards—content then layout, structure, size. It works as a way to give the most freedom to let creators create, the magazine acts as a framework, encouragement, as a gallery. And we thought, can that work for another medium?

And so, Dirty Bristow Radio is about to launch.

It won’t have a studio, it won’t be having adverts, or jingles, or trailers, or playlists. It won’t be 24/7, or even 1/7 necessarily. When it’s on it will be good, and when it isn’t good it won’t be on.

We’re now looking for radio creators, who can pretty much get on with the whole business of making the sounds for themselves. Dirty Bristow Radio will handle the streaming, host your podcast versions, and like the magazine help and encourage if needed. There’s no commitment to regularity or series, if you’ve got a show, we can find a time and it can happen.

If you’re not doing live, or not playing the best music in the universe, or not breaking the boundaries you’re no better than a Spotify Playlist. But if it’s great, you can be in. And it can be on.

We’ve a few ideas for people we want, and have a few ideas for shows ourselves. But we needs you. We’re not after anything you can hear anywhere else, bust the mould, break the format. Go live from places you shouldn’t, make art or comedy, make both. Together, with a white-hot dubstep soundtrack. Like the mag, once you’re in you’ve got full creative control.

We’re sorting out the tech, it’s time for you to shout up if you want to be part of it. Drop us an email at
