In indie music, 2017 has been a great year for music so far and there is no reason to expect it to slow down. We are enjoying new music from Smug Brothers, Son Volt, The Rallies, Guided by Voices, Mark Cantwil, Tashaki Miyaki, Ha Ha Tonka, Spoon, Folk is People, Scott Swain, Al Holbrook, Dreamsalon, Hater, The Magnifiers, Dude York, and The New Pornographers — to just name a few.
We are still listening to tunes from last year from artists like Bleached, Shrug, Mike Adams at his Honest Weight, and Me Time. Again, there is so much more but those CDs and EPs are constantly fighting for space in our CD player! This year we are making a real effort to not only discover great new music to share with you but also to bring musicians into the studio. It is far too easy to get stuck, to limit yourself and simply do the same thing over and over.
Our hope with Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative is to break out of the same day, same songs, same plan approach to radio and introduce new music and new songs to our listeners. And you can help! If there are songs or artists that we should be playing, let us know. Contact us here or email us at drjwudr at gmail!
Even if you do not make any suggestions, please consider joining us every Tuesday from 3-6pm for YTAA and on occasional Tuesdays until 8pm and stay a little later with us as we have performers come into the performance studio and play for all of us.
