New This Week on Squish: 05 March 2012

Squish is the online alt-rock station I program for Astral radio. And it’s commercial-free, too.

How do you get to Squish? Instructions after the jump.

Here are the new songs added to the station this week:


  1. Black Keys, “Gold on the Ceiling”
  2. Red Hot Chili Peppers, “Look Around”
  3. Sharon Van Etten, “Serpents”


I’d sure like to add a bunch more stuff (like the brilliant new album from Foxy Shazam), but licensing issues keep getting in the way.  (HEY, EMI!  WASSUP WITH THIS?)

To access Squish 24/7/365, go here and then click on the graphic that looks like this.

After that, look for the Squish graphic down and to the right. Hit “play” and you’re in. I hope you enjoy Squish.
