With expert Punk Rock from Nervous Jerk

And dark, dangerous energy from COAL

And, before and after, The Big Fresh Collective DJs

Add yourselves here

We thank you!

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.
