Radio is an old medium for entertainment compared to many of the ways that consumers get their content today, but the Radio Garden project is a way to merge radio with more recent digital technology. The Radio Garden project is a collection of radio stations from all around the world, presented as a Google Earth-like globe that marks off the various stations and lets users listen in.

The project is labelled by its creators, Amsterdam-based Studio Moniker and the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, as a "transnational radio knowledge platform." Beyond offering a way to access music, radio stations are unique markers of the culture of the city they broadcast to. As such, Radio Garden is an interesting way to gather cultural information about diverse areas.
