Dubbed “The N.P.R. of P.O.T.” by an editor at HIGH TIMES, 420RADIO is a 24-hour network of news, talk, and music radio shows dedicated to the emerging legal marijuana landscape in America, available for download now at rad-r.us/420app.
“420RADIO is the voice of the marijuana nation,” declares 420RADIO founder Russ Belville. “This is the same news/talk format that dominates American political discourse. We just happen to be focused not on conservative or liberal politics, but instead focused on the serious legal, political, financial, and medical issues surrounding the hottest issue on the airwaves – marijuana.”
420RADIO solves the problem encountered by many people seeking objective information on marijuana: an overwhelming selection of online media with few gems among the various “wake-and-bake” and “toking bongs” shows. With his decade of talk radio experience and incomparable national marijuana contacts, Belville has built 420RADIO from a standard weekly podcast to an unrivaled 24-hour source for only the best marijuana-themed news and talk shows from around the world.
“When I’d appear at marijuana trade shows and told people I produce a live daily podcast,” Belville explained, “you could just see their eyes glaze over. Now with the 420RADIO App, the marijuana talk show goes wherever you go, just like a radio tuned to your favorite talk station.”
The 420RADIO App is in ongoing development by San Francisco-based Objectify LLC. “We’re only scratching the surface of what we want to offer the 420RADIO community,” remarked project manager Allister Capiati. For now, the app hews to Belville’s vision of radio-style simplicity – offering one-touch access to the 24-hour radio stream or to the archived episodes of previous shows. The 420RADIO App is sponsored by SacredSerum, a cannabis accessories company that believes marijuana consumers educated by 420RADIO will better appreciate quality cannabis products.
Belville, known as “Radical” Russ on the air, hosts a two-hour live show that is the flagship program of 420RADIO, The Russ Belville Show, every weekday at 3pm Pacific Time from Portland, Oregon. Belville has interviewed a stellar array of marijuana movers and shakers, including entrepreneurs Sir Richard Branson and Steven DeAngelo, state legalizers Mason Tvert and Alison Holcomb, celebrities Tommy Chong and Doug Benson, researchers Dr. Lester Grinspoon and Dr. Mitch Earleywine, and national legalizers Ethan Nadelmann and Keith Stroup.
420RADIO also features programs from grow experts Jorge Cervantes, Subcool & Mz Jill, and HIGH TIMES’ Danny Danko; marijuana news and activism podcasts from Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Montana, Michigan, Texas, Georgia, Florida, Maine, New York, New Jersey, Canada, and England; the latest content from Drug Policy Alliance, Marijuana Policy Project, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, Americans for Safe Access, Students for Sensible Drug Policy and the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws; marijuana-themed live-deejayed music programs in all genres; and the latest marijuana news delivered at the top of the hour.
