Blues Radio International Brings Live Blues To The World— including the half of humanity beyond the reach of the internet. For most of them, BRI is the only source of Blues music.
Shortwave radio listeners in 184 countries listen to Blues Radio International. We broadcast from high powered transmitters in Florida, and use the ionosphere at the edge of space as a mirror. This brings us to listeners far beyond the range of AM or FM, or even satellite, radio stations. For many, listening to Blues Radio International is their first introduction to Blues music.
We have shortwave listeners in large cites, in rural areas, and where there is no other source of radio— in deserts, or on the high seas. Many of our listeners are found in refugee camps, war zones, or countries which restrict internet access.
It doesn't matter whether someone has an high speed internet connection, a smartphone, or simply an inexpensive radio. The entire world can experience the healing power of live Blues music on Blues Radio International.
