Other Desert Radio is a community arts radio station based in the California high desert founded in April 2020. Through sonic transmissions, we aim to amplify the voices of the inhabitants of our landscape, in order to listen and engage with the community and what's inspiring them now.  

Our goal is to provide a platform which illuminates the agency and power of voice as the representative force of our larger collective community of artists, creatives, and the curious.

Other Desert Radio is fiscally sponsored by Arts Connection, the Arts Council of San Bernardino County, a 501(c)3 organization.


Other Desert Radio was founded in April 2020 by two artists with backgrounds in radio and anthropology. They appreciate the potential of transmission as both a physical and metaphoric representation of a participatory and accessible unconscious, a platform that grants one their own space to communicate honestly and freely.
