Catch The FM Showcase (e.g. All The New Music) Thursday, 9PM ET!

It's Thursday Night, and that means something a little special...

Tune in at 9:00pm Eastern US Time for the Altrok Radio FM Showcase, our collection of what makes sense this week in Altrok Radio's world of music. There's always unreleased tracks and demos featuring edge-skating sounds that made us sit up and listen, along with a few of the classic tracks that inform today's new releases (and tomorrow's.) Sean Carolan is your host, and he's been doing this a while (since 1982, in fact) so, y'know, be gentle.

Beyond that, there's another whole new selection of songs - eight hours worth starting right this moment (whenever this moment happens to be) over and above the tracks in the FM Showcase - pulsing from our servers in CD Quality MP3 Pro, at Altrok Radio.

Got a slow connection? We've put it up for you in glorious mono as well - check the "slower connections" link on the right of the page.

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.)
