About Us

At 1 Pure Alternative Radio, we’re about one thing: the very best in modern rock. Here, you’ll hear established and familiar artists representing the modern rock genre. We also will include artists who were new last year — or perhaps even last week.

Some sample artists include Hozier, Avett Brothers, Black Keys, Coldplay, Lumineers, Mumford & Son, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Capital Cities, Bishop Briggs, Bastille, Cage the Elephant, twenty-one pilots… and much more.

We like to think of 1 Pure Alternative Radio as a town hall for an eclectic and vibrant listenership. We play contemporary alternative music targeted at an audience of young professionals and active, intelligent adults.

Some keywords to describe our audience are: active, green, progressive, the arts, intellectual, NPR, affluent, earthy, independent, free thinkers, music-lovers. Through a genuine love and respect for the music, we program a no-nonsense format featuring established artists, independent acts, and emerging bands.

“It’s all about the music.”
