Indie Is Dead, Long Live Indie

My favorite radio station, Indie 103.1 just announced that they will soon cease broadcasting over the airwaves, and instead broadcast over the internet via SHOUTcast. I have noticed a shift in their playlists to less quirky styles of music, and a cutback on some of their more eclectic programming and changes in personnel. David Lynch was no longer delivering the weather forecasts, and Joe Escalanté had stepped down from being the morning show DJ to focus on an expanded Entertainment Legal Advice Radio Show.

According to Ars Technica, station representatives have not released further word about their intentions for future programming.

I’ve listened to their stream for part of the day, and the quirky and energetic playlist is back, but I have yet to hear anything from a live DJ.
