Into the Vortex

The Global Vortex.  Say it out loud to yourself. Global Vortex.  The Vortex of the Globe.  We all know what global means, but what is a vortex? The dictionary on my mac defines it as "a mass of whirling fluid or air;especially referring to a whirlpool or whirlwind."  A global whirlwind is exactly what we have coming from Global Vortex Radio. A whirlwind of eclectic music being broadcasted worldwide via internet radio.  

Since traditional FM radio has pretty much gone down the tube as far as underground music is concerned, internet radio and podcasts have filled that gap. While there are definitely an abundance of internet radio stations on the internet, there are very few that are as eclectic as GVR.  

Global Vortex Radio currently has six regular shows which broadcast at multiple times of the week at different times so listeners all over the world can listen at hours of there own choosing.  GVR has also been making a presence at live music events and recording the performances and broadcasting them at a later date.  In addition to every show being played at multiple times, all of the shows and recordings are archived on the GVR home page. 

You can tune into Global Vortex Radio 24 hours a day and 7 days a week at  There you can see a listing of show times and stream archived shows and recordings.  It's always  fresh and it's always eclectic.  This station is pushing nothing but solid music from the underground.  To quote their home page "Global Vortex...planetary, evolving, independent electronic fusion sounds from emerging artists to pioneers, It's from Brooklyn, NYC's underground, its 7/24, its new every week, its commercial free, its all yours. Bring yourself!"
