On 16th December from 6 p.m. to midnight CET we will repeat our second special 40th anniversary broadcast, which was aired live on 2nd December.
We wish you a Merry Christmas
Our promise: No "Last Christmas" by Wham on Radio Sylvia. This also applies to "Driving Home For Christmas" by Chris Rea and other Christmas cruelties played to death on the mainstream media.
Instead we bring you the somewhat different Christmas songs by Bad Religion, Rote Rosen, Toy Dolls, Girlschool etc.
Radio Sylvia broadcasts online around the clock. Additionally we are active on short wave 6070 kHz.

Who We Are
Radio Sylvia is run by a dedicated team of long-time radio and music enthusiasts and can look back on an eventful history. After its foundation in July 1977, the station was on the air as a pirate for many years on FM as well as long, medium and short wave. In January 2009 we returned and are now broadcasting legally from our studios in Hamburg via internet and short wave.
Our aim has always been (and still is today) to provide a musical alternative to the omnipresent musical mishmash. We focus on music beyond the mainstream and play tracks that are never or only very rarely heard on other stations.
Radio Sylvia Supports New Bands
We are always searching for new and little-known bands and artists. Please find all details on band applications here.
Below you see videos of some of the new tracks, which can be heard on Radio Sylvia.
Hooligan - (Justa Nother) Teenage Rebel
Flash Forward - Kickstart
Alex Lahey - I Haven't Been Taking Care Of Myself
