Radio Popolare festival (Milan, Italy)


Ula reports for Radio Študent

The residency, hosted by Radio Popolare, an independent radio in Milano in the Lombardia region, was an opportunity to visit their music festival that went on for 2 days, from 10th to 11th September 2022, located in their own auditorium. 

We are going to dive into the structure of a fellow independent radio and their financial model through an interview with the director Marco di Puma, will then listen to some comments on the Milano independent music scene from the band Milano Shanghai, and are, of course, going to play some tunes we heard at the festival.
