re: No more Morning Alternative.
The really sad part about the End pulling their Morning Alternative show is that it was one of the only places the station really pushed local music. They’ve pushed bands like The Saturday Knights, Post Stardom Depression, the Blood Brothers and other local favorites, cracking the corporate code of ignoring local talent by inviting local bands and local personalities on the air. They even released a compilation CD of these studio appearances (I don’t have it on me but I think it was just called Live From the Morning Alternative, with proceeds going to the Vera Project). Hopefully they’ll keep the Sunday night Young and the Restless show, which was all about local bands. The more media that supports Seattle’s rich music scene the better…the more we get piped in programming from national syndicates (when it comes to music/entertainment) the worse it becomes for our local scene. Isn’t satellite radio the place for shows like Adam C.’s?
