Rock Radio Stations That Don’t Suck

So your favorite “local” rock radio station has taken a turn for the worse, eh? What’s a matter? You don’t enjoy Nickelback, Creed, or Puddle Of Mudd’s “Blurry” every hour mixed in with the Scorps and Spacehog? Understandable. Being a radio guy, I’m always on the lookout for rock radio stations that really cater to their local fans, and understand how to connect.  Not only over the air, but with rock festivals, charities, and how they treat their employees.  Here are some of my favorites, including their station links (orange) so you can still get your rock fix, even if it’s all the way in Phoenix.

Is Dubstep The new Disco?

While stopping by a local “Gentleman’s Club”, I noticed about 50-70% of the music the dancers were using was Dubstep.  If you are unfamiliar with Dubstep, just watch any new movie trailer, commercial, or radio station geared toward the 12-35 year old demographic. Seriously, its effing everywhere.


Now, this scene/format is not new by any means.  Until recently it’s kind of been considered underground. I remember local DJ’s tossing in a mix here and there at the clubs back in 2002. I’m sure it’s been around longer than that.. I’m not saying I’m an expert  on the subject, so hold your tongue. The reason this recent influx of Dubstep really interests me, is it’s ability to cross over into other music styles.  Mainly Rock/Metal. Read more [+]
