Worldwide FM is an award winning platform for underground music, culture and stories from around the globe, founded by Gilles Peterson in September 2016. The station is based in East London, with branches in Berlin, Kyoto, Los Angeles, Paris, Rio, Tokyo and beyond.
File-hosting platform WeTransfer help power the new station, whose mission statement is the same as the one running through all of Gilles’ other endeavors, as label-head, DJ and radio presenter: to explore and tie together the shape-shifting diversity of global music.
Respect and equality is foundational to the ethos of this station; we are committed to implementing the best practices in keeping our staff safe, and to improving the experience of those in voluntary roles at Worldwide FM. We are also committed to offering talent and performers a fair budget when brand or external support is involved. Ultimately, anything gained from collaborations with like-minded organisations goes straight back into the station to maintain and improve equipment and/or create better conditions for the people who work here.
