Birth Place: Brooklyn, New York, USA
Years Active: 1999-present
Genres: Dance Punk, Post-punk Revival

Radio 4 is a band from Brooklyn who formed in 1999. They claim that their sound, which has been described as "danceable punk", is "made in New York, is about New York, and sounds like New York".

The band was a five-piece, comprising Anthony Roman (Vocals/Bass) (formerly of Garden Variety), David Milone (Vocals/Guitar) (who replaced original guitarist/singer Tommy Williams in 2005), Gerard Garone (Keyboards), Greg Collins (Drums), and P.J. O'Connor (Percussion) until April 2008 when Gerard Garone left the band.

The band was originally a trio, comprising Anthony Roman, Tommy Williams and Greg Collins.

They cite a variety of influences, including Gang of Four, Mission of Burma, Primal Scream and Zero Zero, though their lively punk sound combined with their militant political stance inevitably draws a strong comparison with The Clash.

Their name comes from a Public Image Ltd. song from that group's second album, which is itself a reference to BBC Radio 4.
