“Both the Folded Wing & Selector teams had a fantastic few days at the International Radio Festival in Zurich. It’s such an amazing event, and a great chance to meet people who work in radio from all around the world. Doing our live radio show was really good fun, and it was great to watch all the other live shows too. So many great presenters and stations! We can’t wait for future editions of the IRF. Big up to the organisers for putting on such a brilliant event” 

Karen Pearson, Folded Wing, London, UK


“The International Radio Festival is a wonderful concept, a celebration of radio’s global popularity and a chance for us all to bask in the success and diversity of this magic medium.  We all have our favourite channels and stations but for a week, the IRF will showcase and celebrate the big wide wonderful world of broadcasting live from Zurich, Switzerland.
It is with great anticipation that myself and a handful of the original UK pirate DJs will join the festival and share our memories and music from the days when the pirates ruled the waves.”
