My favorite FM "underground" station was the sister station of the top black top-40 station in the city. The AM station played Motown. The FM station played the Grateful Dead. The overnight DJ on the FM station was the son of the (white) station owner.
The top white top-forty AM station also had an FM underground rock sibling. That was an automated tape loop operation. Song, song, song, FCC mandated station ID break, song... but no announcer to tell you what it was they were playing. They had some amazing music, and moments of extreme frustration. "Wow! That's great!
What it it? I want to buy
the album! What is
Right now I'm listening to the original of "Not Fade Away" by Buddy Holly. (It was later remade by the Rolling Stones.)
