Kindergarten Rocks!

Did any of you see me on TV? Me and Jacko Nautilus spent the last six weeks in Germany pumping up for the US world cup appearance. We expected to be there until the end but our teams embarrassing display left us with little to do except fight with bands of soccer hooligans. They thought they were tough right up to the point Jacko starting tossing kegs of jagermeister around like they were soccer balls. It was all over Euro TV...

Hurray for Public Education!

Back in May my son's elementary school had a spring dance. On a Friday night we went to the school and the K through 5 graders were treated to an evening of drinks, snacks and loud music, supplied by a hired DJ. For two hours the kids danced and jumped around like nuts, all jacked up on sugar. The DJ played straight up top 40 hits, some of which were fairly racy, which I found most amusing. I'm sure many of the parents were familiar with a number of the songs he played and the crunky/dirrrty/naughty nature of most. I sure that's why most of the parents had a good time too.

When Green Day's Holiday came on, I could barely contain myself, but I managed not to make too much of a scene. When the Go Go's We Got The Beat was played, I noticed a good number of moms instantly started to wiggle a bit, then realize they weren't at a frat party from 1982 and quickly distracted themselves with another cookie. Of course the highlight was when YMCA was played at the end of the night and everyone, every kid and parent spelled out Y-M-C-A along with the song. It is very funny to watch several hundred people of all ages singing and dancing along to the gay national anthem in a public school. Can all of these people be unaware of what the song is about?? There's no way private school kids are having this much fun.

I'm sure O'Reilly will be dedicating an entire show soon to how liberal communities are brainwashing their kids with anti-Bush/pro-gay propaganda in kindergarten...

We never had dance parties like this when I was in kindergarten. Too bad. Imagine how much cooler I'd have turned out.

I wonder what the parties are like for the junior high students? I can't wait to find out. Good chance Snoop might be there...

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.)
