BTR is devoted to giving a voice to talented, upcoming artists from both here in the United States as well as abroad.

With the launch of BreakThru Radio (BTR) last summer, the station’s goal was simple: to play the best underground music by unsigned and independent artists. BTR DJs scoured the country looking for the most talented acts, only to discover that some of the best music is being made overseas. So as a tribute to indie music everywhere, BTR will be broadcasting its inaugural World Music Show from July 9-15, hosted by DJ Wynn.

“We have not only seen a steady rise in the number of quality music submission from bands across the world but in our international listenership as well,” said Cal Rifkin, co-founder of BTR. “BTR is devoted to giving a voice to talented, upcoming artists from both here in the United States as well as abroad.”
