Madrid DRG es una colaboración entre artistas y músicos, y gente de la comunidad de Esta es Una Plaza, Medialab Prado, In- Sonora y Radio Hortelana.

Bring your radio with you into the garden of Esta es Una Plaza. We’ll transmit on-site on micro-FM!

In the following hours it will sprout broadcasts that are for each hour loosely arranged around a special topic. Don’t expect everything to grow as planned: There will be varieties in plant families, surprise vegetables and visiting guests spontaniously enriching the biosphere of our “huerta radio”.
A lo largo de la transmisión hablaremos de un tema especial por cada hora.
No esperes que todo salga como lo planeado, como en la naturaleza, Existe la variedad y las sorpresas. El ambiente para crear una atmósfera espontánea y creativa en nuestra huerta radio !
