Strangeways Radio

January 10th, 2011

Go immediately and listen to Strangeways Radio. This is what “alternative” was when I was barely filling in my shoes. Almost half of my CD collection matches their library.

Here are some of the songs I was not familiar with yet really appreciated:

Prefab Sprout – Desire As. “I’ve got six things on my mind. You’re not one of them.”

Honeybreath – For When It’s Almost Over. Diary like guitars, good female harmony.

Trembling Blue Stars – Idyllwild. Light female vocals. “Girl whose favorite thing is snow and being alone”

Health – Die Slow (Nastique Remix) Die Slow (Nastique Remix)

Styrofoam – Extra Careful

Cirrus – Boomerang

Curve – Gift

Gary Numan – Dark

Peter Murphy – I’ll Fall With Your Knife

Secession – Love Lies Bleeding

Courteeners – The Opener

Babble – Hold the sky

Ofra Haza – Show Me

Paper route – Carousel

Plastic Bertrand – Ca Plane Pour Moi (This life’s for me)

Ambra Red – ___? Princess

I also frequent Frequence 3 when I want to hear the latest and popular sludge. For example I was sick of Dragonettes “Hello” months before I heard it in the states. I like being able to vote for the eurodance and against the rap!

Both stations share the same curse: you cannot downvote the cheesy Show hour stuff. I want my radio to play actual music!

    Hi there, thanks for the kind words about Strangeways radio.l Not sure what you meant about downvote the Show Hour stuff? Do you mean that you prefer the regular rotation instead of the hosted shows with dj’s? Feel free to send any feedback to the station. It all goes to me and I listen and consider the feedback of all of the listeners. In the meantime though, we are glad you are finding music you like on the station. That’s our #1 goal!

    thanks again,
    Strangeways Radio

    I have to agree, i came across this station this past month and absolutely luv it!! been telling my friends about it too. Its been so long since I could find a station dedicated to this genre of music. Its great to see it ran by actual fans of the music. i hope more people hear about it, but i also hope they DO NOT change the music.
    although it would be nice if they played some Verve once and a while, but hey, I’m just glad the station exists.

    Hey Gav, i hope you will find that we play quite a bit of Verve on the station. We have quite a few of their songs in our regular rotation
