But Before Then...You've Got A Friday To Plan.

By now you've read the big news about the Melody Bar Reunion on 2/17 (and if you haven't, see below). However, there's lotsa stuff going on you should be aware of, and these folks, Altrok supporters all, would be thrilled to have you grace their doorstep this Friday night.

In New Brunswick, NJ, the unassuming victualry known as A Doll's Place has seen fit to let Drew (who some of you may know as Mongo) spin his interpretation of the Melody Bar vibe. So if you need a place in New Brunswick to go, there's your winner - make sure you let him know you're there and that you wanna hear the good stuff.

In New York City (the West Village, to be exact) our own DJ Shred holds down the honors at Mr. Dennehy's. They're at 63 Carmine St. near 7th Avenue South there at the southern bit of Manahttan, and given that you're all familar with La Shred's estimable preferences for things Joy Divisiony, Depecheish, and Siouxsian.

Out on Long Island longtime Altrok friend DJ Cody brings the Subculture to life at Molly Blooms II every Friday night; traversing the distinctions between light New Wave and dark Goth (would that then be cafe au lait?) It's at 140 Merrick Rd Amityville, NY, on the corner of Rt.110, and it would be an awful shame if you were nearby and missed out.

And waaaay over in Oklahoma City, Ferris O'Brien occupies and secures the Electro Lounge with Spy Night every Friday - and you know what he's all about 'cause you listen to him every Thursday here on Altrok Radio, at either 11:30am or 11:00pm...right? The Electro Lounge is at 5929 N. May Avenue in OKC, and the doors open up at 9pm, so there's no need to embarrass yourself waiting outside a yet-to-open club. That's service.

There's no excuse for whining now; I've covered three states in two timezones, so you've got plenty of time to travel. Go!

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.)
