HistoryEdit

On 17 May 2016, the Rádió Rock began broadcasting. The radio station aimed to gain 2,5 million listeners therefore it is available online as well. On February 1, 2019, the broadcast was terminated and Slager FM took the frequency.[1]

Rádió Rock's main principle is to give possibility to the Hungarian rock, Hungarian alternative, indie and metal music scenes.[2]

Hungarian metal bands like The Idoru,[3] Ektomorf,[4] FreshFabrik[5] could debut in a Hungarian radio station for the first time.

The radio station also airs songs by Hungarian alternative bands such as Heaven Street Seven,[6] The Trousers[7] and Ivan and The Parazol,[8] C.A.F.B.,[9] Warpigs[10] which were excluded from other Hungarian radio stations.

The Budapest indie music scene was also given the possibility to be aired by Rádió Rock 95.8 including bands like Dawnstar.[11]

OwnershipEdit

Rádió Rock is owned by István Vörös and Gábor Németh.[12]
