The 1 independent station we have - played "Squeeze Box" by the Who so much that I called AND emailed them to say we would stop listening to them at work if they didn't loose their copy.
I hate that song..

about 10 years ago "alternative" has become a marketing strategy more than anything else

Thanks for the heads up re: "alternative" radio in the US. I know from reading interviews with U2 and REM in the 80s, that they always praised college and alternative radio for getting them heard.

Obviously things have changed since.

The alt rock station in my town has about 8 different songs they play. And since they've decided to start playing rap, only 4 songs are actually rock.
