Bandplanet Radio

Recently we asked the bands and musicians in the Bandplanet community what extra features they’d like to see on Bandplanet, and one of the responses we received was the opportunity to get music out onto the airwaves and into people’s ears. Well, here at Bandplanet we aim to please – your wish is our command! Just look what we’ve cooked up for you now – Bandplanet Radio.

Bandplanet Radio is a weekly radio program based in Chile. Starting from the 8th August, every Wednesday evening from 20–21:00 hosts Pancho Miranda and Jorge Carranza train the spotlight on the best and brightest of Bandplanet Chilean bands in the South American region.

We can’t wait to hear what great music Pancho and Jorge spin for us. Catch you on Bandplanet Radio soon. And don’t worry, we’ll be rolling out Bandplanet Radio to other parts of the world very soon!
