Best Radio Station for Local Music Phoenix 2009 - The Blaze 1330 AM

Okay, first, let's get past the jokes: Yes, ASU's radio station, The Blaze 1330 AM, has an — ahem — limited range. In fact, your signal may start to break up on the south side of campus, which is why most listeners are online. But what the Blaze lacks in speaker-rattling power, it makes up for by being more in tune with local music than any other tower in town. Yes, this traditional (read: dazed students playing OK Computer front to back) college radio station goes crazy for all those blogger buzz bands, but it's been the only spot on the dial (or, more realistically, the only feed in your iTunes) that'll give you a steady diet of bands like Kinch, Miniature Tigers, and Dear and the Headlights. For that, we love them — at least until we go west of Mill.

Well said "Click Here." As a musician who receives compensation from BMI and royalty checks I can tell you that more than 60% of my royalty payments come from internet radio plays. It's the best place to hear and be heard.

No need to apologize. Traditional radio stations are dying left and right. Internet radio is the wave to ride. Good Luck and keep it up!
