The Public Radio.

is finally back!


The single channel radio for your daily routine.


The Public Radio is a single station FM radio housed in the simplest enclosure we could find: a mason jar. It's a totally uncomplicated device - just an antenna and a volume knob - and ships pre-tuned to the listener's station of choice.


In 2015, we shipped 2500 Public Radios to listeners all over the world. And this June, we're relaunching on Kickstarter to bring The Public Radio back! Sign up for our mailing list to be notified when we launch.

Loyal radio listeners won’t miss unnecessary buttons. The simplicity of having your go-to station in a jar is what makes it so awesome.
