A new alternative/indie radio station to listen to
I don't know how many of you guys are familiar with Boston's 101.7 WFNX, but I just got the news that it was bought out by Clear Channel. This sucks especially bad because it was pretty much one of the only radio stations in the Boston area that played indie music for a wider audience, and focused heavily on the local scene, and now it's gone. Needless to say, I'm still kind of taking the news in.
Now that these guys are done, I need to know if there's any other stations online I can follow. Of course, if you don't usually listen to radio, are there any magazines, websites or podcasts you guys could recommend for finding new music that focuses on the alternative music/indie music scene?
I know about Pitchfork and SPIN magazine, as well as the music section of the Onion AV Club. I also subscribe to KEXP's Song Of The Day Podcast, would KEXP in Seattle be a good station to listen to all the time? Any suggestion you guys might have would be appreciated.
This is a terrible day for Boston radio, and the local music scene. I'm really gonna miss FNX. :cry:
