Weird Radio is Officially Live

Spooky Bambina

January 17, 2021

After several months of setbacks and holiday happenings, Weird Radio is emerging from its cocoon.

The independent radio station, founded by Skyler Meany, Spooky Bambina, DJ Ernst FM, and Johnathan Jackson has been on the airwaves since October 2020. It began as a conversation between Meany and Jackson about the latter’s radio shows. Add this to the mutual frustration of paying to get their music heard, and Weird Radio was born.

Following Thanksgiving, tragedy struck when Johnathan Jackson passed away in his sleep at age 30. He was a man of many talents: EMT, train conductor, meteorologist, radio show host, even a movie theater manager. He did everything and then some. As if 2020 could have gotten any worse, right?

Weird Radio is now dedicated to Jackson’s memory as it continues his legacy. A station that features independent and local artists from around the world, talk shows covering various topics, trivia, live performances, comedy, and many other strange surprises in store? We think he would be more than proud.

As of this writing, the Weird Radio team is putting together the world’s first International Virtual Megaparty where we’re celebrating our official relaunch. Simulcast streams of fantastic independent music, live concerts, and wacky entertainment await us. Keep watching this space for more details.
