DJ Profile
indie rock music online from Eklektik One Alternative on Live365 Internet Radio
DJ: Joy Helfrich
Location: Chicago, IL

AIM:
I am lucky enough to have been exposed to all kinds of music in my life. From folk, to early rock n roll, the blues, soul, big band, jazz, classical, opera, country, bluegrass, reggae, ska, new wave, disco (I'm a child of the 70's ok?), dance, trance, heavy metal, rap, hip hop, grunge, goth,..you name it. I earned the name "eklektik one" early on and continue to soak in as many different styles of music as one individual possibly can. This station is my way of honing in on the elusive genre of Alternative Music. I admit the definition is fuzzy...so this is MY take. I hope you enjoy it...

All requests for band airplay are currently on hold. Stay tuned via twitter for updates.

Favorite Artists

U2
Their imprint is on a great deal of today's music. They picked up where bands like The Beatles, The Doors, and The Who left off.

R.E.M.
Pioneers in their own right...continuing the trip to the Alternative.

Sarah McLachlan
A songstress that brings you in to music with her melodies, lyrics, and voice.

Ani DiFranco
Keepin' it real. She does it her way. Her raw talent, passion, and intelligence slap you in the face and make you listen.

Grateful Dead
Ahhh, Jerry...

Favorite Albums

Simon and Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water
Absolutely amazing.

The Beatles - Abbey Road
It was a toss up but songs like Something, Come Together, and Here Comes The Sun won out over Revolver and Sgt. Pepper.

Sarah McLachlan - Afterglow Live
Great cd...great show.

U2 - Joshua Tree
The remastered version is so crisp and clear that you cant help but belt out the words AS LOUD AS YOU CAN!

The Who - Tommy
Whoa...blew my head off at the age of 4 or 5. "Mommy, Who is that?"
