About Mexican Radio:

Mexican Radio is a synth punk three-piece with high-energy songs inspired by bands like Cabaret Voltaire, DAF and Stereo Total. The Mexican Radio Radio Show is their DIY tribute to the music they love. Recording on-the-scene guerrilla-style interviews with some of the most innovative and groundbreaking musicians on tour in Germany, punk rock correspondent Dyan always gets the interview.

Join her and her bandmates Nathaniel and Hannes as they present their hand-picked tracks to create a living document of the ever-evolving Berlin punk scene. After recording the show under the radar in their basement rehearsal room for a year, the show is now coming to KCRW Berlin. On the first Wednesday of each month, they invite you to join their gang and hang out in the basement as they joyfully push back against the banality of mainstream music.

“As a woman who loves loud heavy punk music, I wasn’t hearing enough of my own voice talking about it. So I basically have inserted myself into the conversation and dragged Nathaniel and Hannes with me along for the ride. The Mexican Radio Radio Show is a place where freaks and misfits like us can proudly wave their flags. We’re having fun, so should you!” –Dyan Valdés
