Dive on in.. the water’s fine!
Swamp Radio aims to provide the Greater Northeast Florida area with a live radio experience (and podcast) which celebrates the culture, art, and history of Jacksonville and its surrounding areas. During its inaugural season, Swamp Radio will present a quarterly, scripted variety series which draws from the songwriters, poets, playwrights and storytellers of the area to create an audio tapestry of the place many call home. In addition to the thrill of live performance taking place at various locales in the Spark district, Swamp Radio will also establish a presence in the digital arena with a series of podcasts available to the public at no charge.
