THE ONLY MUSIC THAT MATTERED! (1974-2010) Punk, new wave, ska, power-pop,proto-punk, grunge,lo-fi, indie, britpop, garage, riot grrls, alternative-so many labels, so many styles. My aim was to collect the absolute BEST of that music from 1974, which marked the birth of punk, though 1996, which is when "alternative" seemed to come full circle as the new mainstream until 2010 when all of it has slipped back again into the background. (Original station incarnation was 1975-95). Think of this as a "primer" for an explosive music scene that unjustly received very little play on the radio. Since I grew up in an era of great DJ's who took pride in their song "sets", I do my best to arrange the tunes in a way that honors their style. There may not be equal representation because some bands made 20 great songs, which should all be heard, while others only came up with 1 or 2 gems. Nor do all the songs decreed "new wave hits" by the radio industry get airplay on this station (although I have my share of guilty pleasures). Some pre-1974 influential songs have been snuck in as well. While I admit that I do have an aversion to most techno and ballads, and I certainly can't tell the difference between a brilliant lyric and an inane one, I DO know a great tune when I hear it. So sit back and listen to the brilliant melodies emerging from the wall of guitar sound, or smile at the killer pop hooks, or dance to the irresistible beat but remember - PLAY IT LOUD!-----------------------------------------------------------JUST ADDED MORE THAN 26 SONGS!-------------------------------- THE ONLY MUSIC THAT MATTERED! | Promote Your Page Too
