Verge.FM is a multidisciplinary platform featuring independent radio, community events and cultural writing.

House in an art gallery, this radio station’s aim is to promote up and coming artists specifically from marginalized communities across the Midwest and beyond.


Verge.FM recognizes the dire need for creative, safe spaces where its members can have the autonomy to promote their own creative journeys backed by the support of the community. Its focus is concentrated on Black, LGBTQ+ and gender-nonconforming artists, among other minorities.

The radio station’s programming kicked off January 15th and includes DJ mixes, Podcasts, readings and discussions covering topics like music, experimental art and cultural writing. This radio was partially modelled after NTS Radio, and founded by Nadia Ayad , Lu Bird and Reg Zehner.

This venture is 100% independent and is currently crowdfunding to help pay for the rent, equipment, software and support for its featured artists.
