SiaNet Radio was founded in 2001 and is now a division of the  nonprofit organization The Understream Network.

SiaNet Radio is a broadcast platform dedicated to showcasing independent performance artists. While we do promote the work of regional and international emerging artists, our organization mainly supports the performance art community in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Our goal is to promote top quality acts — with a focus on up and coming artists –while providing an opportunity for members of the community to access and hear these performers.

We broadcast 24/7 featuring musicians, comedians, poets, spoken word artists, DJs and radio personalities. All featured artists are independent and self-censored. However, we attempt to keep daytime programming workplace friendly.

We believe that entertainment should be entertaining and art should be accessible to everyone. We believe that art isn’t always pretty and it should not be watered down.
