The Radio_Head Awards are music awards which arose in opposition to Slovak popular awards such as Slávik or Aurel. Radio_FM organized the first awards in 2008, giving space to different music than that played on commercial radio stations. Every category is awarded with a statuette with a radio instead of a head.
