Synthpop Nonstop is a beat-mixed, one-hour music show that features a diverse selection of classic and contemporary electronic and indie dance music with brisk, informational mic breaks.

A hosted music program for Triple A, Freeform, Dance, Urban, and Alternative stations that need novel, reliable, upbeat, content appropriate for any day part, Synthpop Nonstop programs to 25–54, tech-savvy, concert-going, travelers that are interested in trends, community, and sustainability.

Host/producer Patrick Whalen draws from over a decade's experience programming public radio, as well as from years working in the record business and for global tech industry brands.

Synthpop Nonstop first aired in 2022. After thirty-eight weekly episodes on Seattle LPFM KBFG, the program shifted to a national syndication strategy. It has been available on PRX Exchange since January 2024.

In the late '70s, a new music subgenre, synth-pop, arose and launched the MTV era. As synthesizers became mainstream, synth-pop took up residence in nightclubs worldwide, eventually giving way to the rave scene, before coming back full force in a new century. Today, artists from the dawn of synth-pop like Depeche Mode and New Order fill arenas, supported by a new generation of artists they inspired.

Available weekly, Tuesdays 1:00am PT
• Program duration 59:00
• 2 floating, 20 sec breaks
