Looks like a radio revolution is happening. KNDD Seattle (www.1077theend.com
) is hiring local indie musicians (Rob Femur from the Femurs overnight Sat. night / Sunday AMs) to do on air work. Rob's show reminds me of an old CFNY overnight shift. Even airplay and a shameless plug for his own band! btw- this IS commercial radio. Also, KNRK Portland, OR dropped the NEW ROCK ALTERNATIVE formula and are asking listeners what they want- eg: Local jocks, indie artists, jocks picking tunes, b-sides, live cuts, more music- less talk. I'll be in Portland soon, so I'll report back. www.knrk.com
in the meantime. Sorry, it's not happening in Canada. Radio is a disgrace here. Embarassing, to say the least. We sure were spoiled with great and quirky radio like CFNY back then.
