Fall Membership Drive: Donate Now!

Sometimes, things get the better of our tech-savviness, like when we suddenly realize that sometimes, some browsers will bypass our temporary splash page (where it says in very large letters, "Click Here To Donate!") and take you straight to the page with the blog posts, e.g. this one right hyar.

And it's not as though we want to bludgeon you with the "Click Here To Donate!" message. I mean, if we were to say "Click Here To Donate!" too often, you might become numb to the fact that we really do need to actually pay the bills around here. Saying "Click Here To Donate!" too often might put you off the idea that we put together a unique mix of classic alternative, punk, modern rock and new wave tracks along with brand new indiediscodancepunkjangletweecrunchgrind tracks that may not even hit stores for weeks, and that it all fits together somehow. So we wouldn't want to keep telling you to "Click Here To Donate!" for fear that you might not understand that we support the bands we play by paying all the royalties we're supposed to be paying.

And if we were to say "Click Here To Donate!" again as a way to let you know that we've got equipment that sometimes breaks down (oh boy, does it) and needs fixing, and that we sometimes have to get new equipment, like computers and audio stuff, we wouldn't want you to get the wrong idea.  I mean, we wouldn't want you to think that clicking "Click Here To Donate!" was the only way you could have a meaningful two-way relationship with us. The feedback link's still highlighted above, so we've still got that. And we'll always have Paris.

But mostly, we wouldn't want to say "Click Here To Donate!" too much because it might sour you on the whole "we're in this together" sort of mindset that you might have rolling around in your head, that you feel like the station's a part of you, and you'd miss it if you suddenly had to deal with our station being "that great station that went away like all the other great stations." Because we're not going away. And saying "Click Here To Donate!" won't make us go away any less.

So click here to donate, already.

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.)
