About the Station

The 20th Century Alternative. Featuring classic alternative rock, jazz, pop, and folk tracks from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. Emphasis on alternative and indie artists, but we'll also spin the odd masterpiece track from an iconic 20th century artist.

About radio_alt_20

In 1977, I bought my first album. I paid two dollars to a kid across the aisle from me in 10th grade English class, for a barely used copy of Black Sabbath's "Paranoid". I've been obsessively buying and listening to music from that day.

All the music played on Radio Alt.20 is ripped from CDs in my personal collection. I use cdparanoia, lame, sox, mp3gain, and other open source tools to produce the best quality MP3 audio file possible. Listen closely to the sound quality of my broadcast, I think you'll hear the difference.

If you love the music of the 20th Century, like I do, then this is a good place for you to be. Give it a go!

You won't find many stations that mix rock, jazz, punk, folk, funk, ska, fusion, glam, psychedelic, prog, pop, new-wave, goth, and post-punk tracks all together into a single broadcast, but that's what happens here. From Count Basie to the Clash, from Frank Zappa to the Flaming Lips, if it's a great album track that wasn't overplayed on real broadcast radio back in the day, we're spinning it here for you--right here, right now. Peace!
