Restart Radio

The Restart Project hosts a different kind of gadget show, encouraging people to use their electronics longer in order to prevent waste, save money, and be happier.

Restart Radio airs live every Tuesday at 1:30pm on London’s best indie radio station, Resonance 104.4 FM (also on DAB).

Our theme music is made with lasers, photovoltaic cells, and repurposed computer parts, a collaboration between Opto Noise and Cassini Sound.
