East Village Radio (EVR) is a free Internet Radio station which broadcasts from a storefront studio in the East Village of Manhattan, in New York City. EVR serves as both a voice for the local downtown cultural scene and as a forum for the community at large. Over the past four years, EVR has emerged from a small, backroom collective of music lovers to become a growing fixture on a local and international level.

EVR's street level studio at 21 First Avenue at East 1st Street helps maintain its independent artistic sensibility. According to an MTA (Metropolitan Transit Authority) study of pedestrian traffic in New York City, almost 1,800 (1,000 during off-peak travel times) pedestrians pass by the sound booth per hour.

Over 60 DJs and hosts provide 16 hours of free live programming a day, in 2 hour show blocks, 7 days a week. Each show is a distinctive sample of the vast musical spectrum: a mix of music, news, comedy and commentary. The music ranges from indie to new wave to coldwave to hip hop to post punk to vintage jazz to funk & soul to house to techno and ambient electronic. EVR provides an amalgamated cooperative of DJs and personalities who entertain and galvanize listeners with a wide array of musical genres and thought-provoking commentary.

It is first and foremost a station that exemplifies a communitarian spirit, nonconformity, and a dedication to providing a platform for innovative music. EVR provides a forum for obscure music as well as a platform for local djs and personalities who might otherwise have been drowned out by the deafening presence of rapid gentrification. EVR supports the free radio movement.

History

East Village Radio was first established in June 2003, and originally broadcast on the airwaves at 88.1 FM. After an article in the New York Times described the station, the FCC sent a cease-and-desist letter (being that the station was unlicensed). Due to the difficulty of obtaining new FM licenses, even LPFM licenses, in a large metropolis such as NYC, the decision was made to make EVR an internet radio station.

Some time after this, it was decided to move the studio from its original location above a restaurant to a storefront booth on First Avenue in Manhattan. This was seen as a way of reconnecting EVR with the East Village community since the station was no longer literally on-the-air.

East Village Radio's DJ line-up includes British multi-platinum artist and producer Mark Ronson.
