Radio: Christian Alternative

Yes, "alternative" is a relative term. Simply by definition, Christian contemporary music has to fit some fairly restrictive standards. But not all CCM is created equal. If you enjoy songs written from a Christian perspective but also enjoy artists who push at the genre's often confining boundaries, this station is for you.

Now, if you've ever taken a date to a 4Him concert -- or if you consider Casting Crowns the epitome of cool -- you've come to the wrong place. You won't hear any Natalie Grant or Michael W. Smith here, either. There's nothing wrong with any of those acts: my mom loves them! That's just not how we roll here. What you WILL find on this station is any style of Christian music -- from rock to singer-songwriter to punk pop -- that leans a little left of center. We welcome the genre-straddlers, the question-askers, the bewildered seekers. Button-pushers like Derek Webb and Jars of Clay are regulars here, and such mainstream-friendly bands as Needtobreathe and The Fray stop by often as well. Burlap to Cashmere, RED and Skillet all coexist peacefully in Christian alternative as well. It's a great place to visit, so come on in, prop up your feet and stay awhile. We hope you'll feel at home.
