New Wave Radio Station With Live DJs

Postby wxb102gm » Sun Jan 21, 2007 1:38 am



Hello there. My name is Michael Sutton, and I used to lament the lack of a “classic alternative” radio station in Seattle, only to be rewarded with two - a reformatted KNDD - and KRQI - within a week of each other. However, neither of them really filled the void I was missing, and certainly my New Wave-loving friends were still left unsatisfied, dismayed by the repetitive playlists on both stations and over saturation of grunge. By the time KRQI too the leap to Jack FM, we were already back to our CD players.

All of us have a radio station that first introduced us to the music that would eventually shape our lives. For me, it was WXB 102 in Manila, Philippines, an adventurous New Wave radio station that brought cutting-edge groups like Echo & the Bunnymen, the Lotus Eaters, Fra Lippo Lippi, Xmal Deutschland, Joy Division, U2, R.E.M., among hundreds of others, to the FM dial in my country.

On September 10, 2005, I did what many thought was possible. Completely burned out on alternative radio, I resurrected WXB 102 online with two of its original staffers and pre-programmed shows.

However, now my dream has finally come true. I’ve totally revived WXB 102 online with live DJs from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday to Friday. The daily jocks -- George Frederick, The Ghost, Julius Caesar, Mick Flame -- were all from the original staff. In fact, I managed to bring everyone back from WXB 102’s 1986-1987 air core.

You can tune in here:

http://www.wxb102.tk

Our daily live sked is as follows, Mon-Fri (PST):

7 a.m.-11 a.m.: Mick Flame
11 a.m.-3 p.m.: The Ghost
3 p.m.-7 p.m.: George Frederick
7 p.m.-11 p.m.: Julius Caesar

Some people compare us to defunct local powerhouse KJET and others to CFNY in their New Wave peak. But, seriously, nothing sounds like WXB 102. Our DJs work without a playlist outside of our primary golds; however, this is not chaos. While we regularly spin obscure acts like the Wedding, Minimal Compact, the Weather Prophets, Blue Zoo, and the Adventures, we also include hit singles from the Cars, the Cure, Depeche Mode, and the Police alongside reggae from Bob Marley, Aswad, and Black Uhuru and hardcore punk from Minor Threat and Black Flag. Plenty of album cuts, 12\" extended mixes, and rare imports, too. You won’t hear any grunge or emo but we do include newer artists such as Bloc Party and Franz Ferdinand once in a while and don’t be surprised to hear local legends Young Fresh Fellows and the Sonics, too. We’re not afraid to go beyond the basic definition of New Wave and include Johnny Hates Jazz, Level 42, the Velvet Underground, the Kinks, even Cheech & Chong!

I don’t believe in boring mp3-streaming Internet radio. If you have an iPod, what’s the point in tuning in? Our jocks begin broadcasting live from Manila in the middle of the night. We’re having a lot of fun, and I’m inviting people here to check us out. Radio can be enjoyable again. Thank you for reading this and I hope you tune in. We take live requests at:

Because of the server going down in Manila yesterday, we unfortunately were unable to resume our live programming. HOWEVER, the Sandman is LIVE right now on WXB 102:

http://www.wxb102.tk

Check out the Sandman's New Wave and post-punk rarities, 12\" singles, among others, delivered with the Sandman's trademark Saturday morning wit.

Also, we will be rerunning the 102 Countdown throughout the weekend. For those who missed it back in October, the 102 Countdown was hosted by Mick Flame, Cool Carla, the Morning Man, the Sandman, DJ Blare, and Hilary (formerly of K-Lite's Lite Wave), counting down the Top 102 songs of all time as voted by listeners.

Anyway, check out the Sandman right now:
