Heart of the City Radio is produced by local musicians for local musicians! That means that all the music you hear is locally produced by current or former Minnesota Christian recording artists, oftentimes right here in the Twin Cities. Production-wise, our music often rivals the major labels! What's more, Heart of the City Radio music is truly eclectic, so in a typical hour-long show you'll hear 10-12 songs ranging from pop, to black gospel and everything in between! And remember, through your listening loyalty and by purchasing some of their music, you encourage and support all this great local talent, and thus you inspire them to continue making more great music!

However, it also explores genres that overlap with and contribute to hip hop, including R&B, neo-soul, dancehall, reggae, Latin, electronic and spoken word. We play recent releases from the Twin Cities, but also bring you national and international music.
