Show Description

Your favourite radio show in the Entire World! The Alternative Hour is a Weekly, 1 Hour radio show featuring the best Alternative music from the past 30 years, as well as the ones you might have missed. Hosted by Jarrod Hayson, each episode features up to 15 songs a week, with friendly, conversation banter thrown in the mix for a bit of fun.

Each episode is typically made up of a few segments, including Release Radar; where we go over the best music that has come out in the past week, and Artist Spotlight of the Week; where I highlight an artist who maybe haven’t seen mainstream success, or whose music is celebrating some form of anniversary.

For the first episode of each month, we do a Full Album playthrough. The albums featured are either brand new release albums, or albums celebrating a milestone. We have also done episodes where we broadcast a live show, and have even done interviews with the likes of Atom Willard, former drummer of Angels & Airwaves and Social Distortion.

We would love for you to join The Alternative Hour Family, and broadcast the show on your station. Each episode is recorded remotely by Jarrod in Auckland, New Zealand using professional equipment, then edited together by Jarrod, before being put into a Dropbox/Google Drive folder for the stations to grab and program in. Each episode is presented in MP3 format as 320KBPS quality.
