    How does the station handle music rights/royalties/etc? Can you just play whatever you like or do you have to get permission?

    • alot of it is played with permission (most of which have been supplied by the bands themselves), but some are streamed without. We’d be fine with removing tunes from rotation if a rights holder has a stick up their bum… but for the most part bands/labels seem to be down for the free promotion, especially since we link back to their bandcamp…[Read more]

    Kind of surprised not to have heard more about these guys around here. Even Pitchfork likes them, and I can count on the fingers of one foot how many other times their recommendations have fit my tastes.

    • I have two of their albums, great slow heavy riffs, but I have to be in the mood for Pallbearer.

    That was this guy! DF are, or were, from my hometown of Chicago, IL. Caught them live opening for another local band and really dug them (especially tracks 2 and 6). Sadly they don’t seem to be together anymore, but at least they left this chunk of gold behind.

    I had not! This definitely warrants further investigation!

  • How about a topic for “features/shows/etc” we’d like to see?

    I speak it, and it is done. All hail the forum.

    To start us off, I have a few suggestions for some themed shows to add to the schedule if anybody with the guts and know-how is looking for something to do. (I know nothing about creating podcasts or I’d give it a whirl myself. Maybe…[Read more]
