PRLog - Aug. 28, 2009 - Radio OKC a locally owned "Adult Alternative"
The station's music library features artists like U2, Elvis Costello, R.E.M, The B52's, The Cure, Angels and Airwaves and Bad Religion.
Owner and Program Director Chris Torrick launched the station on June 1st and is excited about the growth of the station over the first 90 days. Torrick
states "in a project like this it is normally a slow go, but people are telling their friends about us and the growth has been more than I ever expected." The station not only has listeners in the Oklahoma City but has a growing International listenership including France, United Kingdom, Australia and Canada.
Torrick admits "it's pretty cool to receive a e-mail from a listener saying I found your station last week and I've been listening on my I-Phone ever since. Internet Radio stations like mine have become just as accessible as a AM or FM station and we're filling a void because most local stations are now being operated from another city. Local DJ's have become fewer and fewer in number and local artists have nearly no chance of any significant airplay and exposure"
The station would like to have up to 30% of it's playlist featuring music from
Oklahoma bands and artists that mix well with their adult alternative format.
Some of the Oklahoma artists currently receiving airplay include Ali Harter, The Starlight Mints, and Hush Hush Commotion.
Artists, Bands and their Managers are encouraged to submit professionally produced MP3 formatted recordings to the Radio OKC website for consideration.
