Long Live Indie 103.1

I can’t believe it.  It’s gone.

I woke up this morning,  listened to the morning show with TK, and everything seemed cool.  I get in my car at lunch and this is what I hear followed by The Clash’s “Guns of Brixton”.

This is an important message for the Indie 103.1 Radio Audience –

 

Indie 103.1 will cease broadcasting over this frequency effective immediately.  Because of changes in the radio industry and the way radio audiences are measured, stations in this market are being forced to play too much Britney, Puffy and alternative music that is neither new nor cutting edge.  Due to these challenges, Indie 103.1 was recently faced with only one option — to play the corporate radio game. 

 

 

We have decided not to play that game any longer.  Rather than changing the sound, spirit, and soul of what has made Indie 103.1 great   Indie 103.1 will bid farewell to the terrestrial airwaves and take an alternative course. 

 

This could only be done on the Internet, a place where rules do not apply and where new music thrives; be it grunge, punk, or alternative � simply put, only the best music. 

 

For those of you with a computer at home or at work, log on to http://www.indie1031.com and listen to the new Indie 103.1 – which is really the old Indie 103.1, not the version of Indie 103.1 we are removing from the broadcast airwaves.

 

 

We thank our listeners and advertisers for their support of the greatest radio station ever conceived, and look forward to continuing to deliver the famed Indie 103.1 music and spirit over the Internet to passionate music listeners around the world.

 

This is disgusting and unfortunate.  Indie 103.1 was the most refreshing taste of radio I’ve ever experienced.  It completely pushed the envelope and took chances, and most of all, created a community. 

 

Indie was everything radio should be and never once got old or boring.

 

Peace and thanks to TK, Mr. Shovel, Steve Jones (Jonesy), Surf Junkie Jeff, Joe Escalante, Kurt St. Thomas, Darren Revell, Dave Navarro, Alex Luke, Danny Masterson, Dred Scott, Sat Bisla, Henry Rollins, Joe Sib, DJ Paul V., Christian B, Mark Sovel, Chuck P, Full Metal Jackie, Suicide Girls, and my dude Native Wayne.

 

You guys started a revolution. Keep it crackin on the internet.
