This is small web, consent driven, artist populated, non-commercial mechanism, attribution promoting, community radio from the fediverse.
Our RFF flagship main channel is a hyper diverse free form format lightly curated to not completely rip the paint off the wall or wear out your welcome but will challenge your listening style with hopefully fun results. Likened by many to back in the day community and college radio it is weird and wonderful and a little wild. As part of the experience you might catch a wave of a style or genre and other times you might get delightful sonic collisions or happy accidents.
Our RFF Comfy channel was developed to smooth out the edges for our friends who require a softer experience. Still eclectic in genre and styles and still easy for dropping in and discovering at your leisure, or having in the background, it is RFF but without the jagged edges, intesity or harsh frequencies. This hopefully provides a low anxiety and comfy haven of fedi sounds so more listeners join in the party of supporting fedi artists! comfy origin story context
Our RFF specialty channel is a rotating hourly themed block programmed channel that will feature artists/tracks from Main and Comfy but also offer listener the choice to expect a certain sound/vibe at certain times sound allowing us to go a bit deeper in style and run time. A lightly focused "scheduled" expansion on drop-in, discover and then go support fedi artists we hope compliments the community! specialty origin story context

Our friend Gabe from @email@example.com really wanted a 24/7 feed of fedi artists, video, audio, anything. Given various attempts by Gabe and ourselves at both video and podcast formats with sustainability of content and buy-in issues, RFF is an invitation to a community driven pivot.
radio free fedi is consent, agency and artist celebrating community radio from the fediverse. We actively and openly present contributing artists' information with the hopes that you will drop-in, discover, and then LEAVE? That's right, RFF has no interest to be an end-point for hyper focused consumption. We also do not have the resource to provide infinite custom streams and we love the community to not do souless algorithms. We want to foster organic discovery and discourse. We want to generate support for fedi artists on the platforms and methods of their choice, no judgement. Support fedi artists!
Artist data is made available on this website for now playing tracks and there is further track history in various formats including a bot for the main channel in case you missed track data while you were washing the dog. If you require alternative formats for ingestion for other means to help the community play RFF and support fedi artists please reach out.
Stop gaps like Bandcamp playlists on third party tracking sites, hyper open methods with poor discovery and walled garden corporate streaming platforms seldom strike a good balance to retain attribution and actually promote, celebrate, interact and ENCOURAGE direct support of artists without costing everyone involved some painful percentage of coin, privacy and agency. We are continually impressed and heartened at the community that has rallied to support each other around a more transparent and organic discovery layer.
We support fedi artists by passing on their preferred license since attribution and consent are paramount. All music and words we play retain the license that shows on this page for each piece as per the artists' wishes. All copyright materials we play have been consented by each artist for streaming only on radio free fedi. Please do not re-use the stream, DO however contact individual artists to talk amiable terms if you would like to use their work for your project. Support fedi artists!
We expect classic standard fediverse etiquette of no nazis or fascists, no harassment or abuse of any kind, no racism, no bigotry, no ableism, trans lives matter, black lives matter. We want to radiate inclusiveness and empathy and also rock some kick ass tunes, sounds and words. Please let us know if we get anything wrong or we are accidentally promoting anything untoward.
Keep the fedi weird and wonderful! Enjoy.
