Today: Ferris Out Sick, But The Showcase Continues...

Send Ferris O'Brien your well-wishes; as of yesterday, his voice had disappeared (though it may come back in time for his SpyRadio gig tonight at KATT in Oklahoma City at Midnight Central US Time - keep sippin' the honeyed tea, Ferris...) Then I ran out of time to do a fill-in show - Christmas shows actually take a bit longer than planned when they're mostly-previously-unheard-on-Altrok-Radio enterprises.

Fear not, for the FM Showcase featuring this week's new picks is on at it's regular 1:30pm Eastern time slot. Tonight, however, it'll repeat a couple of hours earlier, at 11:00pm Eastern, so you can still have three hours of frothy newness by tuning in to the FM Showcase here on Altrok Radio and then switching over to SpyRadio at 1am Eastern (Midnight Central.)

And what other station ever did that for you?

Of course, tomorrow at 10PM Eastern at 90.5 The Night, we'll have the annual Christmas extravaganza, complete with a lot of the original Christmas tracks that are buzzing about blogland...oh, and Stan Freberg.

Oh, yeah: Happy solstice!

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.)
