FORT WAYNE, IN radio vets JAMES DEE (formerly of Active Rock WBYR and Hot AC WMEE) and MARTI TAYLOR (former Music/Promotion Director at Hot AC WAJI) are set to launch FOXTANGOWHISKEY.com, an internet streaming station, this SATURDAY, AUGUST 3rd.
FOX TANGO WHISKEY is a hybrid of 70s to 90s Classic Rock/Hard Rock/Heavy Metal mixed with new music from artists with the ‘retro’ feel.
TAYLOR said, "There are so many talented young artists and bands putting out music that stands up to the classics. Even bands with three Top 10 songs are still in vans. They're hustling out there to follow their dream. We're finding them. We're giving them the exposure that mainstream radio isn't. After all, that's why we got into the business."
DEE said, "You'll hear some of the same Grammy Award winning artists that have packed concert halls for 40 years. They've sold millions of albums. Yet, some of these artists get virtually no love from traditional AM/FM stations."
FOX TANGO WHISKEY will initially run jockless until FALLl 2013. JD will host the "Fox Tango Morning Show" and TAYLOR will fill mid-afternoon slot "Fox Tango Afternoon Buzz." Apps for both iPhone and Android are in development, offered for free through mobile providers.
