Shows: Rock

Our rock DJs lose sleep staying up all night to bring you the finest rock and roll on the planet. You’ll hear every genre, sub-genre, and passing fancy spun by our rock DJs—from punk, hardcore, pop, prog-rock, krautrock, acid-folk, psych, and goth to space rock, new wave, no wave, noise rock, art rock, glam rock, metal, power electronics, and just plain old classic rock.

Be sure to check out our Live In-Studio show: Pure Hype.

"Thank you very much. The Cylon war is long over. Yet we must not forget the reasons why so many sacrificed so much in the cause of freedom. The cost of wearing the uniform can be high. But...sometimes it's too high. You know, when we fought the Cylons, we did it to save ourselves from extinction. But we never answered the question of 'Why?' A young Ensign once asks me, 'Why are we as a people worth saving?' I could not answer him then and I can’t answer him now. As a people we still commit murder because of greed, spite, jealousy...We still visit all of our sins upon our children...Commander Tolan once told me that you can’t outrun the sins of your family and as a species we refuse to accept responsibility for anything that we've done…like we did with the Cylons. We decided to play God. Create life...When that life turned against us...we comforted ourselves in the knowledge that it really wasn't our fault, not really. But like Ensign Wallace says, it was our fault…no one else to blame…You cannot play god then wash your hands of the things that you've created. Sooner or later, the day comes when you can't hide, from the things that you've done, anymore." - Commander Adama

The postmodern meltdown of culture into the economy is triggered by the fractal interlock of commoditization and computers: a transscalar entropy-dissipation from international trade to market-oriented software that thaws out competitve dynamics from the cryonics-bank of modernist corporatism. Commerce re-implements space inside itself, assembling a universe exhaustively immanent to cybercaptial functionality. Neoclassical (equilibrium) economics is subsumed into computer-based nonequilibrium market escalations, themed by artificial agencies, imperfect information, sub-optimal solutions, lock-in, increasing returns, and convergence. As digitally micro-tuned market metaprograms mesh with techoscientific soft engineering positive nonlinearity rages through the machines. Cyclonic torsion moans.

Borzoi Peace Vigil

All songs appearing on this show are fictitious. Any resemblance to real music, living or dead, is purely coincidental. In the ocean-going lane, dream sharks nudge moxie bottles into the shred zone. Irreparable loss.
