With a career of over 20 years in radio (Radio Europa Libera, BBC World Service, Radio România Actualităţi), Valentin Panduru works and promotes the rules of journalism even when his discussion themes are coming from the musical scene.
When the FM antenna was not enough, he designed a platform and a radio station to promote underground music and artists (Alternativ.ro and Radio Alternativ 2006 – 2008). That was the first radio station to broadcast live on the internet concerts of such artists as Suie Paparude or OCS from the Bucharest’s underground clubs.
For 8 years he’s been producing a daily show at RFI România called RFI360, where he inserts live concerts, interviews, reports or artists portraits. Everything with the strong belief that, in this world of all-media-partnerships-promotion, there also have to be music journalists who will confirm an artist’s success simply by chosing to play their music.
