WFNX Listeners Set Stage For Station's 27th Anniversary
March 16, 2010 at 10:21 AM (PT)
PHOENIX MEDIA Alternative WFNX/BOSTON is inviting its listeners to vote for their favorite Alternative artists of all-time at www.wfnx.com. The station has loaded over 400 artists into its online "Artist Generator," which pits two randomly selected artists in head-to-head battles. Listeners can click on their favorites and keep track of the results in real time.
"Our ultimate goal is to take every musical argument we ever have here at the station, let our listeners settle it online, and countdown the results on-air," said WFNX VP/Broadcast Ops. MIKE TIERNEY. "The listeners used our Album Generator to decide the best albums of the ‘00s, voting over half-million times. This should get an even bigger response. The station has been here 27 years, so our listeners have pretty much the entire history of Alternative music to choose from."
On APRIL 12th -- a day after its 27th anniversary -- WFNX will kick off a countdown of the results with artist #101. The station will add another artist to the list every weekday, culminating FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3rd, with the revelation of the number one WFNX artist of all-time. Each day the station will highlight music by the ARTIST OF THE DAY, along with interview footage, factoids, and a musical buying guide for each day’s artist.
