Nashe Radio plays popular music that isn’t quite “pop.” What’s big in Russian-language rock, rap, punk, R&B, and alternative? Nashe Radio’s all-Russian and eclectic playlist can tell you. Once a month, SRAS provides a snapshot of what’s at the top of their charts, with YouTube videos and links to our Russian music site.

Here’s how the lineup stood on September 22, 2017:


1. “Храм” (“Temple”)—Сплин


2. “Я-Любовь” (“I Am Love”)—План Ломоносова


3. “Время жить” (“It’s Time to Live”)—Ноль


4. “Парню 90 лет” (“90 Year Old Guy”)—Пикник


5. “Я панк-рокер и алкоголик” (“I’m a Punk-Rocker and Alcoholic”)—Наив
