The Ongoing History of New Music, Episode 716: Looking Back on Britpop

If you were into British alt-rock in the 90s, you’ll know that it was quite a party. And it was fun until it got out of hand. Here’s a selection of the biggest songs of the era. Don’t forget to add in your favourites, too, at Rdio.

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. We just lost Winnipeg this week (not our fault; a format change).  I’m also 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.
