We Pause For Pie

Over at News From Me, Mark Evanier pontificates at length over the proper way to prepare and deliver a pie to the face.

Seriously, it's no laughing matter.

Do pore over it while tuned to Altrok 90.5 HD2, where (by the way) the Christmas music will wait until Christmas Eve...

Underworld At The London Olympics

I can't ever help being a sucker for the Olympics; I blame Jim McKay.

Especially the opening ceremonies, which are generally an exercise in making billions of people look at an avant-garde art exhibition. Often, they'll wonder why it is they're watching, but they certainly watch. I try not to ever miss them, myself.

The London Games in 2010 will not be an exception, but may have a bit more rhythm than usual, since Underworld will be responsible for the original music. This might be very cool. Underworld say as much in their announcement.

As always, you know there's a limited number of stations playing Underworld, and one of them would be Altrok 90.5 HD2. So tune in already...
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.)
