Hit The Beach, Help The Night

90.5 The Night, my public radio benefactor, has a brilliant idea to avoid spending time on-air asking for money. Here's the gist of it - you know what to do. (And yes, if you participate in this, you help Altrok out, too.)
Dear Friends,

90.5 The Night, Brookdale Public Radio is your local radio station. We are the only public radio station in Monmouth County and as a public station, fundraising is a necessity.

This time without the fuss and muss of an on-air campaign, we want you and a guest to enjoy delicious food and music at 10th Ave Burrito Co. in Belmar on the evening of July 10th at 5pm. For $125 we will make sure you and your guest are fed, get a sneak peek at our talented musicians for the evening, a bag full of custom Belmar goodies and the first 60 copies of Songwriters on the Beach 2013 CD!

We at 90.5 The Night always strive to make our fundraising ventures fun. (Dare I say we put the fun in fundraising). This time around in an effort to avoid a 5 day Summer On-Air Membership Drive we planned the perfect outing for all of our listeners! We realize that 5 days of fundraising on-air, which are very important to us, can be a bit.....draining for you.

We announced this event on June 1st. With June 30th coming quickly, the end of our fiscal year, we need to sell out this party and close our books so we can head to the beach!

Help us put the fun back in fundraising! Join us on July 10th to kick off this season of Songwriters on the Beach in Belmar. We promise to bring the fun!

Reserve Your Space!

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.)
