How it all started…
Behind everything is the dream of one enthusiast, radio matador, Roman Culk. The plan for his own radio was brewing in his head for a long time, until finally in 2009 Radio Dechovka was created.
But the beginnings were not easy. At that time, the studio was in the study of the family house where Roman lived with his family. The moment guests and presenters started coming on air, it was time to move.
Initially, Radio Dechovka broadcast only on the Internet in the player on its website and on the play.cz website.
In 2013, it received a nationwide broadcast license from the Radio and Television Broadcasting Council. To spread the signal, it used its own medium-wave transmitter in Prague – Bořanovice on the frequency AM 1233 kHz with a power of 10 kW.
In Prague, Pilsen and Ostrava, Radio Dechovka can also be tuned into the DAB+ digital radio network. In 2018, new co-owner Zdeněk Rajmont joined Roman Culko on his journey through brass bands.
It is the first brass radio in the Czech Republic.
