Popcast in November

In our November Popcast moderator David Creedon presents music by Gaddafi Gals, Deichkind, Steffi x Virginia, Trettmann
and Kreidler. Rock, Pop, Hip-Hop, Electro: every month we shine our search beacon into the nation’s studios and clubs. Together with Zündfunk, Bavarian Radio’s scene magazine, we showcase the latest music by riveting off-the-charts bands.

News from the classical music scene
The KLASSIKCAST is taking a creative break.

But we’ll be back – revamped and in new attire – come mid-November. We’re going to surprise you with a special edition for Clara Schumann’s bicentenary and spotlighting some astonishing lesser-known sides of Ludwig van Beethoven.
So stay tuned – and listen in again soon!
