Celts in Iberia

Traditional eighteenth and nineteenth century scholarship surrounding the Celts virtually ignored the Iberian Peninsula, since archaeological material relatable to the Hallstatt and La Tène cultures that have defined Iron Age Celts was rare in Iberia, and did not provide a cultural scenario that could easily be linked to that of Central Europe.

Rest In Peace, David

Hello world!

Welcome to the new nRP, a home based radio station from Porto to the World, now on a new subdomain…

Actually, in a shy attempt to be accurate, this is not really a radio station. It’s more some stuff somewhat more like a JUKEBOX, at least nowadays, giving people lots and pallets of music. Yes, […]

nRP presents Mike Oldfield

Composer Mike Oldfield rose to fame on the success of Tubular Bells, an eerie, album-length conceptual piece employed to stunning effect in the film The Exorcist. Born May 15, 1953, in Reading, England, Oldfield began his professional career at the age of 14, forming the Sallyangie folk duo with his sister Sally; a year later, […]

nRP presents Led Zeppelin

It wasn’t just their crushingly loud interpretation of the blues — it was how they incorporated mythology, mysticism, and a variety of other genres (most notably world music and British folk) — into their sound. Led Zeppelin had mystique. They rarely gave interviews, since the music press […]

nRP presents Tindersticks

Tindersticks were one of the most original and distinctive British acts of the ’90s, standing apart from both the British indie scene and the rash of Brit-pop guitar combos that dominated the U.K. charts.

Where their contemporaries were often direct and to the point, Tindersticks were obtuse and leisurely, crafting dense, difficult songs layered […]

nRP presents T G Albinoni

Tomaso Giovanni Albinoni was the son of a well-to-do Italian businessman enabling Tomaso to live the life of an aristocrat (and almost the life of a dandy).

He studied both violin and singing, treating instrumental music and opera well 1. It is difficult to assess whether Albinoni’s vocal music will continue in the performing […]

nRP running on Part-Time

Due to technical reasons, current economical crisis and lack of listeners, this station will be broadcasting daily only from 8:00am to 10:00pm. As a matter of fact, keeping on air a station without listeners makes no longer any sense. This solidarity action with the overall poverty in Portugal suits us very well…

May the gods […]
