TalentCast is an independent music radio programme. We have been broadcast since 2007 and in this time have grown from a few dozen listeners on one internet radio station to three radio stations (one FM and two on the internet) and several thousand listeners. Our partner radio stations are Ede FM, Universe Radio and Fame Music Radio.

Apart from making a radio programme, we host album listening sessions, feature music videos and provide a platform for sharing gigs and events, which are posted by artists and their fans.

TalentCast is not a company or foundation; it is a voluntary, non-commercial project set up and run by people who want to help independent music be discovered.

All independent artists and bands are welcome to send us music for airplay. Read here about how you can do it, and why you should!

Hi all,

The summer break is almost over and just eight days to go until the next edition of TalentCast is a fact.

As you might have noticed, the website has changed quite a lot this summer. On our brand new forum you can read more about the updates.

Of course also this season I love it to share the best independent music with my listeners.
