The Ongoing History of New Music, Episode 709: The Survivours

Think about this: which alt-rock bands have been together the longest without enduring a single line-up change? No one’s quit, no one’s been fired, no one’s died. The people who were in the band on Day One are the people who are in the band today. That’s the subject of this week’s show.

 

The Ongoing History of New Music can be heard on the following stations:

And if things go well, the show will soon be heard on a few other stations. I’m looking for outlets in Vancouver, Kamloops, Kelowna, Red Deer, Grand Prairie, Regina, Saskatoon, Brandon, Windsor,  Montreal, Charlottetown, Moncton, Fredericton, and St John’s and anywhere else with a transmitter. Anyone? Anyone want to start a campaign?

Meanwhile, if you want to go really deep into some of this stories, head to Flink.to, which is the official archive of all things Ongoing History. This is a place for super fans of alt-rock. Hope you can take a look and start contributing to the stories.
