It’s late November in Brussels and it’s raining, so not the best day for a stroll along the muddy alleyways of the Parc Royal. Yet two determined and warmly dressed figures await us outside the small wooden shack located at the coordinates (50.843438),(4.362687), niched between the outer fence and a shallow circular central pond. The “Kiosk Radio” flag is flying proud despite being thrashed about by harsh gusts of wind, and sounds emanate from the speakers hanging from the roof.
We sat down with Mickael 'Mickey' Bursztejn and Jim Becker to discuss how Kiosk Radio came to be, what challenges they faced in starting up Belgium’s most eclectic and successful webradio, just how hot it gets in the studio during summer, and what they have up their parka sleeves for the coming artistic season.
