There's Such A Thing As A Television Tradition

Growing up in the late sixties and early seventies as I did, there's actually some gratification to knowing that the occasional bits of pop culture persist. For instance, on Labor Day weekend, I can't help but tune in to the MDA Telethon...

...and that's why I'm watching The Yule Log on WPIX, at least 'til it ends at 1PM. It's even got a newly chosen hour full of not-very-new-but-unheard-for-decades Christmas tracks in its last hour at noon. (Of course, we've still got A Very Inappropriate Christmas running all day at the web radio station and its low-bandwidth mono counterpart...though it's up to you to decide how inappropriate it is. Anything with Blondie, Albert Brooks, The Smithereens, The Beatles, Julian Casablancas, Frank Sinatra and Cyndi Lauper, Maps, New Muzik, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Bad Manners in among it's eleven-hour running time can't be all bad...)

Merry Christmas, folks!

Please Look At Our Advertisers (Or The Website Gets It)
Congratulations, you've found the hidden text.
Welcome to, also available at and Here's where the remaining listeners of several fine radio stations have retreated, regrouped, and built a replacement strong enough to stand on its own. It builds on the independent legacy of New Jersey's FM106.3, New York's WPIX and WLIR, Oklahoma's 105.3 The Spy, the pre-buyout mindset of KROQ, WBCN and WHFS and of every other alternative station that was destroyed at a moment's notice - not because they weren't making money, but because there was bigger money to be found elsewhere.
We've stood by as truly independent alternative rock radio died. Sure, something called "alternative" took its place, but we know for sure that anything that "tests well" with soccer moms just ain't alternative. (Even if some of us happen to be soccer moms.) So we've taken matters into our own hands.
This really is independent alternative rock radio, visible here at and audible at our web radio station. It has the classic music that fired our passions back in the day - or that we maybe only heard about from our elders - but it's mostly made of the new music that does precisely the same for us now. We're paying attention to scenes all over the world, watching the energy build, and waiting to see what it creates. Wherever it happens, we'll make sure you can hear about it here. We've been slowly building all this since 2001, and now that you've noticed us, we're glad you're here.
Of course, it's only here because you want it to be here, and it can only stay if you help it along - especially by checking out our advertisers (they support us) and by listening (the more that listen, the more visible we are.) Please use the "feedback" link above to let us know whether it works for you, and what you want it to be as the future unfolds. (And if you need help hearing it, let us know that, too.)
