Monster Children (that’s us) has partnered with Vans to bring you Channel 66, a new kind of community radio meets public access TV broadcasting to you live from the US.

Channel 66 is a digital live stream network broadcasting weekdays from NYC, Chicago, Mexico City, and Los Angeles—that’s where we come in—to audiences across the world. Here’s what you can expect: DJ sets, curated radio shows, talks, workshops, and music performances across music, art, sports and community, all shining a light on each city’s unique sub-cultures.

You’ll catch performances and DJ sets from Japanese Breakfast, Channel Tres, Action Bronson, Vic Mensa, Laura Jane Grace, Duckwrth, and Rosa Pistola, a panel discussion with Flea, Atiba Jefferson and Sam Velde, curated music and chats with GZA featuring live chess with guests, the Max Fish Chronicles (handpicked music and bar stories as told by those who lived them), and heaps more. If you’re missing the days of hanging out at your favourite skate shops, music venues, and record stores, this is the next best thing.

Channel 66 will broadcast 11 am EST / 8:00 am PST every weekday. To stay up to date with upcoming events, follow along at vans.com/channel66 or follow Channel 66 on Instagram at @vanschannel66.
