1 Pure Alternative Radio:
(Today’s Alternative Rock, with periodic “throwback” programming)

We prefer and actively promote mutually beneficial arrangements for the artists we play:  we promote the artists on-air and on social media and they help promote our radio station on their own social media outlets or at their live events.

We are always looking for artists, record labels, and other promotional services to use on our stations.  If you are interested as an artist, record label, or music promoter… come and get heard!

Track submissions are preferentially accepted through our DropTrack service. For optimal results, please upload broadcast quality tracks. Please submit them below:

Special programming:

We run special programming nearly every weekend. If you aren’t hearing the usual format (which is “Today’s Alternative”), we sometimes like to pay homage to our forefathers, if you will, by playing some cool older stuff! It’s all about discovery here, even if the track you’ve never heard before could be 40 years old!


We run minimal advertising on our stations, to remain compliant with SOCAN non-profit broadcasting rules – no more than one advertisement per hour. This only very partially covers our expenses.

If you enjoy what you hear, please consider a donation to defray various expenses, including music acquisition and licensing fees – please donate any amount at our GoFundMe page at

Alternatively, direct donations via Paypal to are always accepted.

IMAGING (i.e. the bits you hear between some songs and the top of the hour):

Some of our imaging is produced in-house.  Some additional imaging is woven together from freely available sound bites and music beds such as those provided by Music Radio Creative.  Additional imaging from Imaging Thing has also aired on our stations.
