In Case You're Wondering...
For quite a while now, Altrok 90.5 HD2 morning guy Tom Brennan has been posting links to the new music Altrok plays on his Wordpress blog, over at http://tomhd2.wordpress.com/ ...and I figured, why not drag that stuff over here so's Altrok.com devotees can hear/see it?
Enter "If This Then That", a.k.a. http://IFTTT.com - purveyors of a nifty glue that sticks your various social presences all together.
So what's over there now magically shows up here. Neat, huh? Plus, hey, more content. (And everyone likes content.)
Watching and/or listening to what he posts only takes a few moments...and after that, you can keep the vibe aloft by tuning into Altrok 90.5 HD2
and gluing yourself to that, too. See? It's all a nefarious plan.

Congratulations, you've found the hidden text.
Welcome to Altrok.com, also available at AltrokRadio.com and AltrockRadio.com. 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 Altrok.com 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.)
