altradio is a great mix of indie, rock, blues, folk, Americana and oldies. It is about music as art, rather than just music; a mixture of old and new friends. It could be rooted in Progressive Radio of the 60's and 70's, but it covers music from the 50's to the latest new groups, with everything in-between. It's the 'Progressive Alternative.'
