A Brief History of Wyldwood Radio
From a humble beginning as a wyld idea in October 2011, Wyldwood Radio rapidly grew into an international station broadcasting Pagan music & Neofolk to over 21,000 listeners worldwide.
After taking some time away from broadcasting while we figured out how to handle the GDPR, we proudly returned to the airwaves on 1st July 2018!
We here at Wyldwood Radio have been proud to stand out from mainstream media since we began, introducing new listeners to new bands from all manner of countries. We have met many beautiful people among our listeners and the bands and artists that we play, and we are eternally thankful to the people who have supported us either with donations, social media sharing or kind words.
This station is not a one man project, not even a small team of volunteers, its growth and its future is shaped by the whole community of listeners, bands and artists, friends and the wide Pagan community.
We are Wyldwood Radio!
