Radio Glacier: new spiritual radio station
On August 2, 2021, the new Dutch radio station Radio Gletsjer will go on air. A station that wants to change the world, as can be read on the website. Starting with its own listeners who, just like the radio makers themselves, are considered to be the 'pioneers' of 'how it can be'. And that has everything to do with spirituality. The channel's slogan is therefore: 'Higher consciousness. Deeper radio'.
Radio Glacier is an initiative of podcasters Merlyn van Dobben (The Interdimensional Interpreter Show) and Niels Lunsing (NewTime Podcast), who thought the time was more than right to reinvent the radio wheel. More floor. More authenticity. More attention for subjects that for years have been brushed aside as 'floating', while nowadays there is a yoga studio on every street corner, more and more Dutch people have become addicted to meditation and breath work en Barack Obama confirms the existence of UFOs.
According to Van Dobben and Lunsing, more important than statistics, future models and 'the facts' are the more elusive elements of a story: feeling, intuition and a open mind.
This means that music is given a subordinate role in the programming. A maximum of four records per hour, the rest is talked about.
The entire month of August is dominated by the try-out, which takes place on the Radio Gletsjer YouTube channel. Together with a changing guest, Van Dobben and Lunsing sit down every working day, from twelve to two in the afternoon. Mission: change the world.
