Altrok Radio's New Music 068
by Sean Carolan

Altrok Radio adds New Order, Mando Diao, Duels, Jackdaw4 and much much more...

You can hear Altrok Radio on the web all day long in CD-Quality MP3Pro at the Altrok Radio page, but if you want the concentrated new stuff, here's where it can be found:

    On the radio Fridays, 10pm to Midnight Eastern at 90.5 The Night, Lincroft, NJ
    On the radio Tuesdays, 6am to 8am Eastern at WRSU-FM 88.7, New Brunswick, NJ
    On the web Wednesdays, 8pm to 10pm Eastern at Altrok Radio
    On the web Thursdays, 12pm to 2pm Eastern at Altrok Radio
    On the web Fridays, 1pm to 3pm Eastern and 1am to 3am Friday Night/Saturday Morning at

Altrok Radio plays new music the way Independent Alternative radio once did. We don't throw on the latest cookie-cutter rap/metal outfit that's being marketed as "alternative". But if it's new, it's interesting, and it's challenging, it's on our stream. (And we'll play older stuff that's interesting and challenging, too.)

Update 3/29/05: Here's the latest adds for the week:
    Fiery Furnaces - Here Comes The Summer
    Pluto - Dance Stamina
    Heavenly States, The - The Story Of
    Starky - Girl Talk
    New Order - Waiting For The Sirens' Call
    Jackdaw4 - The Day I Wrote The Book
    Louis XIV - Finding Out True Love Is Blind
    Kaiser Chiefs - Na Na Na Na Naa
    Mando Diao - Down In The Past
    Grip Weeds, The - Realities
    Modest Mouse - The World At Large
    Push To Talk - Haunting 56th St
    Duels - What We Did Wrong

Each week, Jeff Raspe picks an outstanding track from a brand-new album. This week, the pick is:
    50 Foot Wave - Clara Bow

And in our Grinder this week...
    Subways, The - Oh Yeah (Acoustic)
    Arcade Fire, The - Neighborhood #2 (Laika)
    Dresden Dolls, The - Coin Operated Boy
    Of Montreal - So Begins Our Alabee
    Be Your Own Pet - Damn Damn Leash
    Nine Inch Nails - The Hand That Feeds

Live365's editors made us the Alternative Editor's Pick in May 2004, as did, so there's a small but growing group of people that count on us for the best new music we can find, and the best classic alternative dredged from the canals of our (rapidly fading) memory.

So, in short, you can listen to Altrok Radio in 64k MP3Pro here...

(and remember: on weekend evenings, the Muddy Channel is home to the Party Gone Out Of Bounds - the perfect soundtrack to the kind of house party you thought only existed in old John Hughes movies. Try it and see!)
