    Here are the rankings as voted by the listeners for the Month of March. The station has almost tripled its listener base in the last few months, thus a lot more votes.

    That is great! If you listen, please vote up or down if a track moves you in a certain direction.

    Some interesting notes for March:

    Philip Sparke's Dondonnnell made the list twice with two different bands. In fact, both the renditions are quite different interpretations. I believe that further shows the talent Mr. Sparke has.

    Second, several bands from Australia/New Zealand made the top 20. I like it when bands around the world are appreciated.

    Lastly, if you have suggestions for CDs that you would like to hear, please send me a PM. Also, if you want to send me a CD from your band, I will play it (unless it is just awful which in 4+ years has only happen once).

    The station is only possible due to the sponsors. My major sponsor, Midland CD I would like to thank with my full heart. You can buy you favorite CDs from them at

    Also, there is some limited room for sponsorships on the station. We strive to keep the ads band related. The cost is about 1/2 of what a station this size usually charges as we limit our ads. If interessted PM me or you may contact me at
