WOXY Rules OK!

Image hosting by Photobucket

We interrupt your regularly scheduled silence for an emergency announcement.

The best internet radio station that I've ever listened to is in financial trouble and could shut down in a matter of weeks. I only discovered WOXY a month or two ago, and would like it to stick around for a lot longer.

I urge you to listen to WOXY (it's located under Alt/Modern Rock on iTunes radio). If you enjoy it as much as I do, please contribute a few bucks or become a member.

These guys play amazing, amazing shit. Primarily new indie rock, with some classics thrown in for good measure. I signed up a few days ago after they played some new Morrissey followed by my favourite Elvis Costello song. How could I not?

Yesterday afternoon, they played Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood's "Some Velvet Morning" and my jaw hit the goddamn floor. I have been quietly obsessed with that song for weeks. WOXY, how did you know?!

Basically, this station plays what I would play. Please give them money so they aren't forced to shut down in March.

Indie love in the time of Nickelback, my friends.

(Now playing: "He's A Deep, Deep Lake", Film School)

I'm sure you've already checked it out, but the CBC radio 3 podcast has some great tunes each week... And would satisfy your Canadian indie rock cravings. (Provided you use iTunes or any of the now readily available online Podcast players (and/or have an iPod).)
