High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Radio Centraal is a
Belgian "underground" radio station in the old city center of
Antwerp. It began broadcasting on 31 October 1980 as one of the
first pirate radio stations which started around the country in
protest against the broadcasting monopoly of the national state
networks. It always was and still remains an independent radio
project with many experimental programmes and niche music. The
station is structured as a non-for-profit organisation. The
contributors are all volunteers and all the on-air talent finance
the investment and cover the running costs of the project. In this
way, Radio Centraal can stay independent from local government or
commercial sponsors. Most programming is in Dutch, but there are
many programmes in English and other languages. The station offers
a starting platform for aspiring, ambitious and creative radio
broadcasters, whom are given licence to experiment in sound,
editorial, music, reportage and language. Several have gone on to
careers in the Belgian national media. Original founder members
such as Jan Balliauw and Stefan Blommaert now work at VRT
television as international correspondents.
