Thai Community Radio ( offers 1000+ free mp3s

If you're on the lookout for free material to fill your iPod and practice your Thai listening skills, take a visit to, Thai Community Radio. All downloads are in mp3 format.

The catalog is truly expansive. There's a daily 30-minute program called โลกของเรา ("Our World"), covering public interest stories around the globe. The audio archive for this program alone go back nearly two years, which means many hundreds of episodes.

Another long running series is เส้นทางสู่ประชาธิปไตย ("Road to Democracy"), a weekly hour-long program which is up to nearly 250 episodes.

In addition, there are hundreds of other radio documentary programs, sometimes in shorter series, many times in single episodes.

In all, there are more than 1000 free mp3 programs on this website. Wow.


  1. That is awesome, thank you!

    I was using for my Thai talk radio needs, but it only has .wma downloads. (And for me the player constantly cuts off at some point in the middle of the show, so it was kind of aggravating.)

  2. Thanks, I haven't listened to it yet, but I will. I was downloading Thai audio from:

    Thai daily news from NHK

    China Radio International has transcripts but only Realaudio

    VOA Thai Service

    Radio Taiwan (wma or realaudio)

    MCOT has many stations with downloads available in wma format:
    FM100.5 is my favourite because is all news and talk radio (สถานีข่าว และ สาระ:)
