TVRDO 411 Saturday the 30th of November and the 1st of December
According to the Fox series War of the Worlds, the reason The Martians came to Earth was for the music which was sent out in Space by Nasa many Moons ago. So stay alert since TVRDO is playing everywhere! Put yourself in their place, who cannot resist Different Light, In Continuum, the Enid, Steve Katsikas, Eloy, Downes Braide Association, Banda Belzoni, Duncan MacKay, Sons of Apollo, Finistere and Drifting Sun as our album of the Month. I'm sure they also cannot resist our line up of epic songs in the Overdrive section with IQ, The Windmill and The Enid. So Earthlings, tune in this weekend while you still can. Broadcast schedules check the "ON AIR" tab.

We start with a track from 20 Years ago when California based avant-garde band Mr. Bungle released their last album, be aware of some unconventional music. In the Vault we have a spin-off of Dutch band Ekseption called Spin with a minor hit in the USA and nowhere else, remarkable, to say the least.
