HEARTS of SPACE began as a San Francisco late night radio show in 1973, went national on public radio in 1983 and to our eternal amazement, grew to almost 300 stations. Despite our success, it was hard to make a living in public radio, so we started an independent record label in 1984, ultimately releasing almost 150 albums.
It was a lot of fun, but by 2001 the clouds were gathering over the record business, so we launched an online music streaming service with 700 (now over 900) programs —The Hearts of Space Archive. That same year we sold the record label to Valley Entertainment. While we still help produce new recordings for the label, we no longer run it day to day.
These pages tell you more about us and what we've been doing for over 30 years. Our goal is to bring you great music wherever you are, deepen your understanding of ambient, space, and contemplative music, and save you time. The good stuff is out there. We help you find it.
