Radio For The First World (R1Wradio) is a Soweto based online podcast and streaming radio station. Located on the iconic Vilakazi Street, this puts us in the heart of Soweto. We aim to provide fresh content and music delivered with a thought-provoking culture which is specifically aimed at a particular identified mindset.
R1Wradio is a movement and culture that serves as an alternative to popular culture. We strive to offer an alternative view to the world especially coming from Africa where resources are limited but we do not let our circumstances define us instead we use our mind to prosper, hence our slogan; “First World Thinking”.
We strive to identify problems that young professionals face and provide meaningful suggestions on how to solve these problems. We aim to educate and celebrate the youth in our various methods and tools. We like to see ourselves as part of the solution and leaders of a new generation of thinkers who provide innovative ideas.
Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.
