Okay, that’s a lie. We don’t have anything to do with the Great Radio Satan. But we did dump a bunch of tracks from our playlist, most of which happened to be rap tunes. (This struck me as decidedly KKKorporate, hence the phony headline.)
But there was actually a good reason, three good ones in fact. First, rap sounds like shit over the Internet due to the inherent lack of fidelity. Second, well, we are trying to keep the music mix a bit more focused on rock, alternative, non-mainstream, punk, indie, alt-country, and roots music. Why? I don’t know, that’s what most of us here seem to be into. So as much as I love Ice Cube and Eminem, they’re 5000. Go ahead and criticize me in the comments if you want.
The third, and most important reason, is that we’ve got new material! GSV has submitted about 10 new tracks, including songs from the always amazing Jack Bruce, heavy pioneers Spooky Tooth, and a great number from, get this, Daryl Hall.
Check out the radio station with those handy links on the right, and go attack the bulletin board for suggestions, requests, comments, and criticism.
Keep on rockin’ in the free world,
Jeff Sab, GloNo Radio co-station manager

Don’t knock Daryll hall. I love Sarah Smile. Refrain from personal jabs here…
It’s too bad that hip hop sounds so bad over the internet. I wonder if web radio will ever be anything other than a neat gimmick? Maybe once there are some wireless devices that can easily tune them in…
