Everyone knows that it’s best to shop local and support local businesses, but when was the last time YOU listened local?

Well, we just made it easier to listen to all-local music on our sister media outlet SoKing Internet Radio – just click on the groovy black and white Ad in the right sidebar, and you’ll get a pop-up window that plays the station’s stream instantly!

Our recently-tightened playlist is made up of only Northwest music, with a mostly indie/alternative rock slant (with some reggae, ska and yes, even punk), combined with some local “oldies” from the 80s (like The Cowboys, Heats, Billy Rancher, etc.) that we like a lot.

We also air three original shows:
