Thursday, December 24, 2009 Presents "A Very Inappropriate Christmas"

Hey, kids! It's time once again to gather 'round the CPU and enjoy Altrok Radio's ninth attempt at "A Very Inappropriate Christmas".

It'll start up on our CD-quality stereo and slow-connection-friendly mono stations at 1:30pm Eastern on Christmas Eve (that's today, as of this writing), and last all the way through to 6:00am Eastern on December 26 (that way, Alaska and Hawaii can join in the fun.) We'll be featuring classic Christmas tracks that are alternately reverent, irreverent and vaguely disconcerting - a little something to get the arguments started early at the dysfunctional family gathering of your choice. There's new Julian Casablancas and Blondie (!) holiday tunes mixed in there, plus lots of old faves.

And tune in at 90.5 The Night in central Jersey, and online, at 11:00pm Eastern Christmas Day for the two-hour Altrok Radio FM Showcase...this week featuring a new Altrok Christmas Mix for the first hour, and - in the second hour - new tracks from New Young Pony Club, Deastro and The Futureheads alongside classics from The Cure and The Bangles and a deep cut from The Higsons.

On Boxing Day (that's the day after Christmas, you visigoths) come and see me at The Court Tavern in New Brunswick, NJ, spinning deep alt tracks for your dancing pleasure from 9PM.

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.)
