CBS RADIO Alternative KITS (LIVE 105)/SAN FRANCISCO is launching “INDIE 105” on its HD2 channel and as well as RADIO.COM. Replacing “CLASSIC LIVE 105,” the new “INDIE 105” focuses on rock for the digital generation, playing a cutting edge mix of indie rock hits curated by LIVE 105 PD JACENT JACKSON and APD/MD AARON AXELSEN.
“This is a radio station for opening bands and the fans who love them," JACKSON said. "It’s a true channel for the digital streaming, festival going generation. AARON and I have programmed shows like this on broadcast radio and they are a labor of love. I couldn’t be more pleased to bring this channel to the BAY AREA locally and everywhere on the RADIO.COM app.”
“Think of this exciting endeavor as an amalgamation of our venerable new music program Soundcheck, combined with the vibrant blogging culture and digital streaming movement, all while catering to those with an adventurous appetite for underground music and emerging artists, and that should give you an accurate snapshot of what to expect from INDIE 105,” added AXELSEN, who also hosts LIVE 105’s specialty shows Soundcheck and Subsonic.
INDIE 105 signs the weekend of Live 105’s BFD concert, with a mix of music that includes ST. VINCENT, ARCADE FIRE, PURITY RING, LCD SOUNDSYSTEM, THE WAR ON DRUGS, VAMPIRE WEEKEND, HOT CHIP and JACK WHITE.
