About The Best New Bands


The Best New Bands Radio Show has been running on Berlin’s Radio Alex 91.0 for a number of years – until Summer of 2019 under the name Barbiche on Air. From August 2019 the radio show was renamed The Best New Bands, the website was set up, and…the rest is history.

Every month on our Berlin radio show and the podcast that comes out a week later, we feature the best and brightest of the new bands coming up from Berlin and Europe – plus occasional studio guests, advice for musicians and a bunch of chat.
