Brainwaves iconBrainwaves is eclectic alternative radio – two hours of music every week spanning five decades of rock and roll. You’ll hear everything from the pop 70s all the way to the latest melodic indie, with a healthy dose of punk, progressive, new wave and grunge thrown into the mix. Your host, Brian Blum, broadcasts from Jerusalem, Israel, so you’ll hear some cool Israeli rock as well.
