Indie Focused Playlist

keep-calm-and-listen-to-indie-music-5 A lot has changed since we first started the radio show back in 2003, especially when it comes to hearing music from artists not on major labels, aka Indie musicians. Commercial radio is playing more and more non-pop acts, hit TV shows are incorporating indie and unsigned artists’ music into their programs and even digital music apps Spotify and company have indie music options. This change reflects what we all have been working hard to achieve over the past decade. And I appreciate you being a part of this journey.

What the other platforms (previously mentioned) have not done as much of is feature emerging and unsigned acts. Since experience is what we do, this week’s presentation celebrates our small contribution to the shifting of indie music, becoming a more prominent part of the media landscape. Enjoy!
