Humboldt Last Week Alternative Radio:

I’m testing an alternative music radio station! The goal is to cram as many songs into one hour as possible with some quick local stories here and there. Do you think this is something you’d enjoy?

Maintaining a radio station like this costs money and takes time. But it’s also seriously fun! I’ll be testing it for at least a month to see if there’s any local interest.

Also fun: There will be moments I’ll be able to handle music requests. You can send those to host@humboldtlastweek.com.

Also please send me suggestions about programming if you have any.

Please bear with me as I’m still in the process of selecting new and old songs, mastering, and carting them into the system. The rotation is a little tight right now.

There are a number of ways to listen:


iTunes(also works well with Safari on iPhone)
