About Vil Vodka

Vil Vodka has been a LIVE365 broadcaster since the summer of 2000. The original purpose of the Vil's station was to showcase the same music he was spinning at the Phoenix night spots he resided (Cannery Row in 2000, The Blue Ox in 2001-02). His first venture into Internet radio came in 1999 when he started posting pre-recorded hourly shows in REAL AUDIO format on my former web-zine: MADPEN.com. Internet Radio was put aside a few years to focus on a passion for performing live rock n roll, most recently playing guitar for Phoenix glitter punks Blanche Davidian. Other bands Vil has performed in include Snap Krackle Drop and Terror.45. Now retiring from live music, Vil Vodka is ready to attack the airwaves again! In addition to Vodka Tonic Radio, DJ Vil Vodka spins weekly at GIMME DANGER! @ Hollywood Alley in Mesa, which is promoted by his record label Vodka Tonic Media.

MAJOR UPDATE: Vodka Tonic Radio will be leaving LIVE365 on October 22nd 2007. If you like the music we play, please visit our podcasting page at http://www.vodkatonicmedia.com/podcast.htm or check out our new radio stream at http://www.vodkatonicmedia.com/newradio.html.
Bands wishing to directly license their music to us for future airplay should contact vodkatonicmedia@yahoo.com THANK YOU ALL FOR LISTENING TO OUR PROGRAMMING THE LAST SEVEN YEARS! Originally titled "Trash Palace", the station plays "the best mix of dangerous rock 'n roll from the past century"; defined as garage rock (60's and contemporary) mixed with some of the lost classics of the punk, new wave, glam, goth, alternative, rockabilly, psychedelic, & power-pop genres with it's many sub-genres and eras included. In addition, many artists from the Phoenix area are showcased (Sonic Thrills, Beat Angels, Slash City Daggers, Haggis, Blanche Davidian, Thee Oh-Nos) as well as indie artists worldwide. This station proudly started at a time when commercial alternative radio wouldn't touch garage rock or new wave. This pride is continued by still playing music that is either long forgotten or nowhere near the corporate radar.
In November 2004, "Trash Palace" officially changed it's name to VODKA TONIC RADIO to coincide with a new record label Vodka Tonic Media. While still sticking with the same format and keeping with many favorites from the Trash Palace days, VTR will also focus heavily on showcasing artists signed to the Vodka Tonic label, as well as featuring the music that inspire the Vodka Tonic artists.
The station has recently upgraded to make room for a higher quality streams and a larger playlist. The upgrade also enabled us to offer our station's stream to anyone, free of charge. Future plans includes interviews of some of the hottest independent rock n' roll bands, plus many people on the non-performance level that help make the scene happen. Look out for many new scheduled programs on Vodka Tonic Radio.
Update! New Adds 2/25/07: The Bloody Hollies, The Mission Creeps, Neko Case, Jay Reatard, Friends of Dennis Wilson, Clinic, Beat Beat Beat, Army of Robots, Antique Scream, and Thee Oh No's.
