NetRadio Corporation, a media company that is the leading online distributor of originally programmed audio entertainment through its Web site www.netradio.com, announced today the launch of a new non-traditional rock channel called “Indie Rock” that is programmed by Doc Kane, the newest member of the NetRadio programming team.
The new “Indie Rock” channel will be album driven, instead of focusing on ‘the single,’ and will have a track depth that no other traditional radio station can match. Listeners will find the latest new indie music infused with some of the most important barrier breaking songs of the past – some that many haven’t even heard. On “Indie Rock”, listeners will be exposed to the new sounds of Saturnine, Marah, Tobin Sprout and Make-Up, as well as more familiar artists such as The Meat Puppets, Guided By Voices and Mos Def.
“Indie Rock’ is for listeners who have gone through several copies of one record that changed their life and then wondered why not one single radio station was playing this same music,” said Doc Kane. “Indie Rock’ will highlight artists that push musical boundaries and is an exciting place for music you never knew existed.”
Kane is a 15-year veteran of the music industry, with experience that crosses from radio, retail, artist management and record promotion to his current role as publisher of online music magazine, specialtyshows.com. As a programmer for NetRadio.com’s latest music channel “Indie Rock”, Kane will continue his pursuit of a life-long passion that centers on exposing people to new music.
“Doc’s passion and deep knowledge of a host of musical styles are a true asset to the NetRadio programming team,” said Cary Deacon, President and CEO of NetRadio. “His addition to NetRadio helps round out what is already one of the most talented teams of programmers assembled in the industry today.”
