This is a map of the italian alternative music radio broadcasts. We mean alternative music as the music which is generally not aired by the commercial networks. Marco of Transglobal Underground launched the idea of a web ring and with an e-mails chain we collected, until now, these subscriptions. We are waiting for other contacts from Italy and from everywhere, so write your proposal to  POGOPOP or to Transglobal Underground. Generally all these radio broadcasts are autoproduced by the same DJs, indipendents and tought as a good tool to spread around music, musical info or events without any profit. We really believe that the "philantropic" soul and passion which feature these transmissions are useful elements to support and launch unknown bands and events.
