The new RBMA Radio will debut on February 25 and will feature nine channels, new shows, and a two-week live broadcast from San Francisco, CA. The RBMA Radio pop-up will set up shop in San Francisco from February 25-March 11 and will feature a custom broadcast studio at the Mission District’s Dijital Fix to produce 120 hours of programmed content.
