I’ve posted some pictures of the studio on Instagram.  Remember, too, to follow Indie 88 on Twitter via @indie88Toronto to find out who else is going to be doing guest spots on the station during this month-long testing phase.  Some pretty interesting people are dropping by

. (Oh and there’s an Indie 88 app for both iOS and Android. It’s still in beta, but it’s available.  I’m not supposed to any anything, though–and I’m certainly not suppoed to link to it yet.)

  • i haven't been this overjoyed with a playlist since itunes had that celebrity playlist thing. Alan, you're a badass historian, badass broadcaster, but seriously, you are the baddest assed playlist creator EVER.

  • It was great to hear you today, Alan; I mentioned this during the chat, but you were occupied and might have missed it — so believe me, it really felt like reuniting with an old friend you haven't seen in years. And I loved your eclectic and sometimes completely unexpected music choices as well; hearing Neu! in drive time on a commercial radio station is, I think, one of those crowning moments of awesome that people are still going to remember ten or twenty years from now.

  • I missed hearin this yesterday but that is one HELL of a playlist! More like this please! Fantastic!!

  • I Am The Resurrection!

  • I can't believe that you played Neu!. I would love to hear you play some Can.
