Oh Europa

RadiOh Europa

RadiOh Europa is a 24hr-long live radio show, broadcast live and online. Inviting the audience to join us in a “deep listening space”, we play all of the love songs we’ve have collected on our journey through Europe, and we talk about the people who sang those songs.

RadiOh Europa is a deep-dive into love, heartbreak and the voices of ordinary people living in Europe. Ordinarily RadiOh Europa is performed live for a live audience, but we’ve created a few shorter versions to broadcast on local radio that you can listen to below. There’s more on our Soundcloud.

“a mark of endless love… a generous piece. There’s something extremely buoyant about such a brief encounter frozen for ever”
