Wondering what other people from miles away are listening to right now? Poised a la Google Earth for music, Radio Garden lets you explore the whole world through thousands of radio stations. In an interview with NPR, creator Jonatahan Puckey said that “the main idea is to help radio makers and listeners connect with distant cultures and re-connect with people from home and thousands of miles away.”

All you have to do is spin the globe, enter the location you’d like to check out, and play a station from the list that piques your interest. Also feel free to zoom in, click a green dot, and find out the ongoing broadcast in that specific spot. So far, we’ve helped ourselves to some Kdrama OSTs and Indian astrological advice. We also caught a radio station from Nuuk, Greenland playing DJ Khaled and Rihanna’s “Wild Thoughts” at 8 a.m. Taste knows no borders.

You can enjoy Radio Garden’s photorealistic realm through their website and on Google Play. Don’t fret—even if our phone decides to sleep, the music will still play.
