Real Indie Radio
Finally, we’ve found the perfect middle-ground. A radio station with a music library that’s similar to ours but much bigger, and doesn’t force blood boiling ad campaigns down our throats every 2 songs. A NY public radio station, The Alternate Side is available online 24 hours a day here. It only occasionally has a brief commercial for its own internal promotions. The DJ’s are interesting enough, and oh how refreshing it is to actually hear a DJ play a song immediately after hyping it up.
As great as Pandora is, we’re getting sick of the inevitable M.I.A. or MGMT popping up no matter what type of new station we create.
On a related note, each week we’ll try to post our newest favorite bands. Or at least what we’ve been listening to. We probably won’t be uncovering many fresh faces on the Williamsburg music scene (we leave that to the experts), but contributing to the general music discussion never hurt anyone.
