Left of the Dial on KEOS 89.1 FM

"Left of the Dial" is a two-hour radio program that airs on KEOS 89.1 FM College Station/
Bryan Wednesday nights 9pm - 11pm.  I first discovered college radio in 1983.  At night I 
listened to the station out of Southern Illinois University and discovered all kinds of 
music that I had never heard before on Top 40 radio.  I learned of an entire rock & roll 
underground that was somehow absent from the commercial world: bands like R.E.M., Echo & 
The Bunnymen, Husker Du, The Replacements, The Smiths, Dream Syndicate, and beyond;  music
genres like the Paisley Underground, new wave, industrial, gothic, power pop, punk, 
hardcore, world music, post=punk, the new wave of British metal, psychobilly, hiphop, 
alternative country, and grunge.  

It was the commercial acceptance of grunge that, for the most part, destroyed college rock radio as we knew it. "Left of the Dial" brings classic college rock radio back to the left end of the dial. The show covers everything from the birth of alternative rock in the '60s with bands like The Stooges, The MC5 and The Velvet Underground through '70s punk/glam, '80s post-punk/goth/indie/electronic/hiphop through the indie rock/grunge boom of the '90s and the current wave of alternative artists.

Podcasting will come soon. For now though ya gotta tune in the old-fashioned way! Call 979-779-KEOS or email redchapterjubilee@yahoo.com
