As my friend Dinny has reported, there is a portal with many greek stations listed: http://www.e-radio.gr
A good suggestion for music from Crete is Kritikos FM. Check the right column and look for "Crete".

And this url takes you to www.media.net.gr/hania.htm
Kritikorama is a broadcaster in Chania.

Is this not an advert, Dinny? :unsure:

He! As you might know, links often change into something else, at the time - August last year - the page looked different, with a lot of various links to all kinds of radio/TV stations in Greece.

If Yannis wants to cancel the link, he is welcome to do so. I have no business with the Kritikorama station in Chania and couldn't care less. But at the time I liked the multiple choices of radio stations on the site. Now that I use a modem instead of ADSL (still waiting for the last 15 km of cable to arrive in Pitsidia!!!) I don't listen to radio on the internet. I prefer to hear the birds singing on my terrace! :)

Thanks Din,

For your comprehensive explanation.
Where do you listen to after sunset? Komo beach is too far away to hear the sea murmur <_<

I understand this misery with the cables. Crete could be better off with wireless internet access systems.
One small unit could easily cover the whole area where you live, and some more the whole of Crete.
Yeah, but try that to tell the marines.. :)

Do you know Agia Fotia Mia?

For those members who are really into Rebetika (Rebetika were the songs of the Greek underworld, sung by the so-called rebetes (Greek: ). Rebetes were unconventional people who lived outside the social order. They first appeared after the Greek War of Independence of 1821.) there is this radio station on Radio Live 365 called "Rebetika from Greece". They broadcast live from Thessaloniki.

Further to Wim's mentioning of rebetika (I've called it 'rembetika' Yannis?): an absolutely excellent trio called Andromeda performs in the Third Eye in Paleochora weekly during the season, I think it's moved from Friday to Saturday evening. This makes for a fantastic night out, and I cannot recommend it too highly. I just hope they'll still be there two weeks today (countdown has commenced).

On the subject of on-line Greek radio, an old favourite of mine is http://radio.grecian.net/, which is actually all Cretan. I'm listening to 'Studio A' as I'm writing this, and it's really getting me in the mood!

Henry.
