We offer musicians, artists, bands and DJs the opportunity to try out different formats. In addition, we are a platform for urban political discourse through various interview and talk formats. The radio is a department of the recently founded Torhaus Berlin e.V., and is accordingly located in the Torhaus, the gatehouse of the former airport.
Launched as a pilot project in the summer of 2019, THF Radio has been in permanent broadcasting mode since the beginning of 2020, with now over 50 different regular shows per month and over 80 radio makers* involved.
In our understanding, the community in "community radio" can be understood in at least two ways:
First, the radio is supported by a community. Tasks, responsibilities and costs are shared among all participants, and it is only this joint commitment that enables radio to function as an uncommercial and free platform.
Secondly, THF Radio is a radio for a community, namely for Berlin citizens who can use the radio for their own formats and ideas. An important aspect for us is to make access and participation in the radio as easy as possible, especially
for people who are underrepresented in the music and cultural scene and often have difficult access. We try to create human, content and musical diversity in our programming.
