Started by two guys who met in 2nd grade, Civilian Radio is a new-sound production company at the apex of media savvy and radio expertise. We aim to reinvent current standards, involve our team in egalitarian issues and produce the absolute best in radio content curation.


Remember when there were just four or five TV stations? Remember when radio stations played whole albums on Sunday night? Remember when Star Wars was the greatest thing you’d ever seen? We’re in a brave new world where streaming is the new normal, everyone’s a reality star, and there are millions of podcasts to choose from. Satellite. Streaming. Apps. Downloads. Pick that, choose this, go here, download there. When did finding the best music with the absolute best quality become so much work? Well, we’ve got you covered. We want to make it easy to turn on the radio and hear the best classics, but updated to better match your current tastes - you know, not the same old repetitive playlists programmed by Baby Boomer types since the 1970s. Think about swapping out those REO Speedwagon songs and bringing in Nirvana, Band of Horses, Radiohead, or Foo Fighters. The classic songs of ALL rock generations, including THIS CENTURY, carefully curated and in ULTRA HIGH FIDELITY SOUND. Yep. In your car. HD sound means you’ve never heard these songs on your radio like this before (or at least since they stopped playing vinyl on air!).

What’s in the mix? ClassicHD – the devil is in the details

Programmed by lifelong professional musician Philip Golden, ClassicHD is a reinvention of the tried and true Classic Rock format. By playing rock classics from a much wider spectrum of eras and artists, we’re confident ClassicHD will attract a more advertiser-coveted range of listeners, GenXers and Millennials, as well as holding on to the Boomers.
