Der Sender funkt / The Sender is On Air!

The live radio show by Sender City e.V. and friends. Every first Friday of the month starting at 7pm UTC+1.

Since the beginning of the pandemic lockdowns in April 2020, we go ON AIR with our small club to kick off the weekend and stream a Friday night party live and directly over the Internet into your living rooms. Initially from the home studios of the DJs, since 2021 even directly from the former broadcast studio of the SWR station Mühlacker. On board over the years were our residents DJ Krazykrate, Selecta Marleycorn, Hydrogenii, Morology, MADoxx7, Moritz Manuel and Knattertoni, as well as numerous guests: TL-BOOGIE aka Toni-L, DJ MikiLeaks, John B, DJ Vadim, Jugglerz, Josi Miller, DJ Stylewarz, Plastic_tfm, DJ Sket, DJ Odie, DJ SmooveOne, Silly Walks Discotheque and Mr. Belly (Soul Jah Tribe Intl). For the spotlight interview, Truth, BiRdy SanJazz, Papa Schmoof, DJ Lenzageddon, Psycho Dad and DJ Crypt also visited us in the broadcast studio. In the meantime, sponsored by the Land of Baden-Württemberg, we present DJ and hip-hop culture in its purest form, putting artists in the spotlight, virtually via the Internet and with heaps of energy: via chat function, the audience can connect with each other and also directly with the DJs.

Free admission: Tune in and join the party at home!

Sender City History

With the construction of Germany’s first large-scale radio station in 1930, Mühlacker in the Enzkreis district, now known as the “transmitter town,” was granted the right to step up from being a village to becoming a town. The transmitter masts, which changed over time, were and have become landmarks of their young town – including the world’s tallest wooden tower in the meantime and still the tallest structure in Baden-Württemberg today. A cultural imprint was also created by the transmitter: A broadcasting consciousness has arisen in the small town of Mühlacker, which not least motivates our small hip-hop association to greater things again and again.

Then in 2020, after generations of shared history, a historic moment: 8 years after medium-wave broadcasting on the large antenna in Mühlacker was discontinued in the age of digital radio and 6 years after the smaller redundancy antenna had already been demolished, the SWR actually wanted the large mast to fall in March 2020 for cost reasons. The fact that this did not happen is not only thanks to our initiative with a signature campaign in 2013, but above all also to the tireless efforts of a transmitter rescue association and ultimately a group of visionary investors who bought the entire site from SWR shortly before demolition in order to preserve it.

An entire city breathes a sigh of relief because its landmark is now preserved. It was fate that the Corona pandemic hit us just at this time, forcing everyone to stay at home. Because of this, the idea was born in our small association to resume broadcasting from the broadcasting city. With our own means, via the internet and with our very own little musical broadcasting program. Switch on and dance along at home – Der Sender funkt!
