We've recently changed the audio format for our live stream in order to improve the quality and to support more devices and services such as iHeartRadio.
Unfortunately, this means we can no longer support Internet Explorer for listening to our live stream as it does not support the new format. Please see our Streaming Guide for alternative ways to listen to our live stream on your computer, mobile or smart speaker devices.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time” – Thomas Merton
RTRFM prides itself on our coverage of the arts – from a global and a local perspective. It is in our name – aRTy R. Across the station we have always taken an in-depth and interesting look at the art around us.
Artbeat is a weekly look at the world from the perspective of the artist, the curator, the viewer, the people that fund it and those who cannot live without it. We will look at art in all it’s forms from visual to performance and all those strange and wonderful things in between. It’s the intersections between art and all aspects of life that we love.
