Today: Altrok's Eighties Friday - Here's The List

Today and every Friday, you'll hear a big pile of the music we had available in the 80's, all day and through the night, in CD Quality MP3 Pro, on Altrok's Eighties Friday 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.

We do it every Friday, and we do it with a lot of tracks you won't necessarily hear on your average "Eighties Rewind" special...and that's 'cause we were there, and we know the stuff that sold well wasn't necessarily the stuff that we keep going back to. "I Ran" and "I Melt With You" have been shoved out of the way to make room for some really good stuff (often including the good stuff A Flock Of Seagulls and Modern English made that got completely overshadowed by their "one hit wonders".)

The bands for today (6/15/2007) are:

A Flock Of Seagulls, ABC, Adam and the Ants, Alphaville, Adam Ant, APB The B-52's, B-Movie, Bauhaus, Berlin, Big Audio Dynamite, Blancmange, Blondie, Blue Zoo, David Bowie, Buzzcocks Cabaret Voltaire, Camouflage, The Chameleons, The Church, The Clash, Lloyd Cole, The Colour Field, Julian Cope, Elvis Costello, The Cramps, The Cult, The Cure Dalek I Love You, The Danse Society, The Dead Milkmen, Depeche Mode, Devo, Dexy's Midnight Runners, Thomas Dolby, Dramarama Echo & The Bunnymen, The English Beat, The Europeans The Fabulous Poodles, The Fall, Figures On A Beach, The Flying Lizards, Fun Boy Three With Bananarama Gang Of Four, Gene Loves Jezebel, Martin Gore Haircut One Hundred, Happy Mondays, Heaven 17, Hilary, The Hoodoo Gurus Icehouse, The Icicle Works, Intaferon, Intro Joe Jackson, The Jam, Japan, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Joy Division Kid Creole & The Coconuts, Killing Joke The La's, Love & Rockets, Love And Rockets, Lene Lovich Madness, Magazine, Martha and The Muffins, Meat Beat Manifesto, Medium Medium, The Mighty Lemon Drops, Ministry, Moev, Morrissey, Peter Murphy New Musik, New Order, Nine Inch Nails, Gary Numan Oingo Boingo, OMD, Orbital, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark Robert Palmer, Polecats, The Psychedelic Furs, Ltd.

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.)
