SG Radio - the Best in Synthesizer Music!
Founded in 2015 as Synthesizer Greatest Radio the station has been renamed into SG Radio!
SG Radio presents the very best in electronic music - we play the classics from the 70s, 80s and 90s as well as recent and contemporary tracks! And as we would like to present you a wide range of electronic music we are not biased to a certain genre of electronic music.
Besides the big names such as Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream or Klaus Schulze we are also playing great music by artists such as Philippe de Canck, Karl Bartos, Andreas Vollenweider, Mike Oldfield, Jan Hammer, Ed Starink, Pino Donaggio, John Carpenter, Johan Timman, Bernd Kistenmacher, Helmut Teubner, and many others! We also play great music by less known artists and offer newcomers to present their music on our station! And as we are addicted to synthesizer music of any kind we also have a passion for progressive/art rock like Saga, Yes or ELP!

Best of Electronic Music
The best electronic tracks from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and from today - presented in our 6 hours show!
Currently Jean Michel Jarre is on tour and as it turned out he also plays
'Oxygene 17' from his upcoming album 'Oxygene 3' (aka 'Oxygene 14-20' ;-) )
- The track so far on YouTube:
- Oxygene 17
What do you think? Is that track in the vein of 'Oxygene' or 'Oxygene 7-13' or mere a track which could have fit as well to one of his 'Electronica' albums? Tell us your opinion - please write an e-mail contact (at) sgradio.eu.
Oxygene 14-20? No! Oxygene 3!
In several forums on the web as well as in some Facebook groups it showed up that there might be another sequel of Jean Michel Jarre's bestseller 'Oxygene'.
What happened? In several online-stores (like amazon for example) they listed a 3CD set named 'The Oxygene Trilogy' as well as the already mentioned 'Oxygene 14-20' album. Nevertheless those entries disappeared again rather shortly. Maybe it's a tricky marketing gambit by Sony Music?
The scheduled release date is December 2, 2016.
Update (September 30, 2016): in the meanwhile it's not a rumour anymore, because Jean Michel Jarre revealed on his Facebook site the new artwork.
But it seems that it's not 'Oxygene 14-20' anymore but 'Oxygene 3' instead. Further to this the original album from 1976 seems to be renamed into 'Oxygene 1' and the follow-up 'Oxygene 7-13' seems to be renamed into 'Oxygene 2'. Don't know whether this will be the best idea to do. Jarre decided to change besides the name also the cover-artwork of 'Oxygene 7-13' which is at least sort of daring.
