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 to young professionals and active, intelligent adults.

Some keywords to describe individuals in 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.
