On The Radio Tonight (More Than Usual)

The brand-new Altrok Radio FM Showcase will be airing tonight at its usual time in its usual spot at 90.5 The Night...10pm Eastern US Time. It's the show you'll hear next week on the Altrok Radio web station, so go ahead and take the opportunity to get in on it early. (In fact, remember to listen using 90.5's rather nifty AAC stream - twice the quality at half the bandwidth, or so it seems...)

But also and as well, tune in early. Really early. Three hours early.

Why? 'Cause it's pledge drive, and I'll be on the mike with Jeff Raspe, and the two of us won't just whine for pledges...uh, uh. We'll try to make it entertaining. Hopefully cracking each other up, and inserting thoughtful and knowledgable tidbits about the music that comes up on the ol' playlist.

So even if you're not likely to send in money, check it out. 90.5's an awesome station (hey, they put me on the air, don't they?) and they deserve to be listened to, even if you don't feel like donating.

But you should...

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.)
