Yep, our mid-summer FM Showcase Marathon is coming to an end...
The last four months were pretty great on Altrok Radio, and to prove it (and to give ourselves a little breather before diving into the next four months) we've been running a marathon of all of our FM Showcases since April.
That's about 30 hours of FM Showcase goodness, full of our newest tracks and featured classics, with the seemingly tireless (but actually pre-recorded) Sean Carolan as your guide.
Our standard rotation, featuring a juicy set of new Grinders, will begin early Monday morning, so you've only got a little more time to catch up on the best that the middle third of 2007 had to offer. With both business and academia getting ready to get back into full swing in September, what better way to be all caught up when you get there?
Tune in through the Altrok Radio Click2Listen link at www.altrokradio.com, and just keep it locked in - we aim to surprise and delight (musically, anyway.)
