The Radio Dept

Otherwith Germans
The Radio Dept. was formed by Elin Almered and Johan Duncanson in 1995 who were in the school together in their early teenage. The name was taken from a gas station/radio repairer shop in Lund, Sweden which had a large sign with the name "Radioavdelningen, ("The Radio Department" in Swedish) hanging outside their shop.Since 1995 members have been coming and going and at some points there has never really been a Radio Department at all.Martin Carlberg and Johan Duncanson started playing together in 1998 and decided to use the name The Radio Dept.

The album became an underground success both in Sweden and internationally.
