Do you ever wonder why the same few songs get played over and over again on FM radio? Ever wonder why some of the best Indie, Punk, and Rock songs ever recorded don’t get played on FM radio? We did too.
We made the decision to throw out the corporate charts, graphs and spreadsheets and do our own thing. Typical Memphis. We don’t like doing the same thing over and over again, we don’t like to be told what to do, and we don’t like supervision.
We aren’t here to sound like the old 96X or any other cut-and-paste “Alt” radio station you’d find in any random town in the States. It’s not about playing ball with the music industry. It’s not about leaning into stereotypes or making assumptions about what people want. It certainly isn’t about the money. It’s about heart, not the chart.
Hope you enjoy our thing. And when I say “our thing’–that includes you. You don’t have to be from Memphis to be Memphis.
-John Michael, Owner & operator of 96X Memphis
