Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

As we reported yesterday, Phoenix alt-rock station The Edge is currently broadcasting in iPod mode as the DJs are on hiatus while the station's creditors, who have taken control of the boards, implement cost-cutting moves and a "format modification." When the humans successfully battle back against the robots, we'll be hearing more 90s hits and less current music, the station's GM says.

Meanwhile, the station has now rolled out a new Web site, complete with an (ahem) "new" logo that's likely not very new to indie rock fans in Los Angeles. Above is The Edge's new logo. Below is defunct LA station (now "Regional Mexican" format) Indie 103.1's logo. While the logos may be the same, don't expect to hear any Warpaint in the near future. By the way, the stations are not owned by the same people, so they don't have that excuse. Does this bode well for the future of The Edge?

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
