The Ongoing History of New Music, Episode 732: Indie vs. Alternative vs. Major
We need to talk. Too many people are using the terms “indie,” “alternative” and “major label” incorrectly. Not that they’re to blame, though. The definitions of these words have become…complicated, so it’s time for something of a reset so that we can all return to a common language when it comes to this sort of thing.
It will take the whole hour to work it all out, but believe me when I say it’ll be worth it. We’ll all be able to communicate better, you know?
The Ongoing History of New Music can be heard on the following stations:
- 102.1 The Edge/Toronto – Sunday night at 7, Monday night at 11 with archives show Tuesday and Wednesday at midnight.

We’re still looking for more affiliates in Vancouver, Kamloops, Kelowna, Red Deer, Regina, Saskatoon, Brandon, Windsor, Montreal, Charlottetown, Moncton, Fredericton, and St John’s and anywhere else with a transmitter. If you’re in any of those markets and you want the show, lemme know and I’ll see what I can do.
Things are looking good for a debut in Singapore in January. And at least one US station wants to come on board. Anyone else? Love to hear from you.
