What is 8K.NZ?
8K.NZ is an internet (now FM) radio station streaming a full-spectrum sound selection from post-earthquake Christchurch, New Zealand. Launched in July 2016 by a pack of battle hardened radio veterans, musicians, DJs, and young upstarts, our non-commercial and democratically driven station features “music picked by people”, and not some tasteless algorithm.
