Altrok: We've Got All The Independence You Can Handle

It's The Fourth Of July, and as you probably know, we're all about independence, right? I mean, we're open to suggestion, but we don't pick music because we're told to, we pick it because we like it. And since you're in front of a computer reading this on a major holiday, we figure you might just want to listen to it.

And so, as always, there's another whole new selection of songs - eight hours worth starting right this moment (whenever this moment happens to be) - pulsing from our servers in CD Quality MP3 Pro, at Altrok Radio.

By the way: if you CAN listen today, please do - we can use the boost. No, really; it's a holiday, and our numbers usually go down, so please help keep them up...

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.)
