Who We Are! Are We?
Since 2014, ALT360° has been on a continuance journey to deliver all avenues of the word Alternative. Our ventures have taken us to places that allow us to show our listeners that it is possible to have a radio station not just play a variety of music, but also be a part of it. We’re located in Chicago, IL. One of many major cities that is known for its broad musical tastes. Growing up in this city teaches you that diversity is what creates a community. This ideology is how the station began to be formed. From the start we knew that we needed to play all the decades that fell under the Alternative Music genre umbrella. The late-70’s, the 80’s, the 90’s, the start of the 2000’s, to the present. Yet we knew that we only were about half-way there. We had only boxed-in our understanding of what the Alternative format really is; non-vocational choices that go outside the established culture & social norms. By adding in the dozens of the sub-genres we found that it all came full circle, or in geometrical terms, 360° . Our goal is to be the soundtrack for all varieties of life. We function outside the norms. By creating our own community, we thrive to establish a social connection with the artists and musicians we play, and in turn deliver that to our listeners. We aren’t owned by any corporation. No one wears suits. And creative freedom is required to be part of the team. With that being said, our On-Air Hosts all deliver their own style each week by creating a radio show from scratch. Everyone volunteers their time. The music, the topics, the format, are all theirs. They are rewarded by being able to have you not only stay tuned but to also be a part of their world and our Degrees of Alternative.
