Classic/Current surveysThe Cure, Gina is back with all the news on your favorite classic alternative artists and Totally Tubular Flashback remembers a bubble gum concept that didn't quite get off the ground (or the roof of your mouth!).

As we've been hinting over the past few weeks and officially announced on last week's show, Alternative Classix has entered a new era. In addition to the weekly podcasts, we are now airing on the Hum Radio Network every Saturday night at 9pm EST (8pm CST).
A LoudCity Legal Broadcaster, Hum Radio - "the HUM of the Web" - plays the greatest hits (and misses) of the past five decades. It's "music for people who just like music" and we encourage you to give it a listen!
The first AC show aired last night and we welcome all the new listeners who are eager to keep the classics alive!
As many of you know, for the past two years, the Alternative Classix team has supplemented the weekly podcast with a live version of the show on Friday nights in the virtual world of Second Life. It's been a wonderful experience - first at Pulse, then Mystical Nights and most recently at Harmony Cafe and the RiverWalk Coffee Company in Cetus. Separately, Tarsis has done weekly DJ gigs at the high, featuring Brazilian music from the 1960s through today - another genre close to his heart.
We've made new friends and we've brought on many new podcast listeners. Second Life makes you realize that just when you think you've figured out the Internet -- something will always come along to expand the way you use it. But eventually, all things must come to a close.
And so it is we announced in-world today, with much sadness, that we have decided to indefinitely suspend Alternative Classix LIVE in SL. As the team looks to take the podcast in new and exciting directions in 2009 (details to come!) while balancing an increasingly busy schedule, it became obvious that something had to give. The dawn of a new year has a way of providing clarity to one's priorities and the time was right for the move.
We have so many people to thank in SL, and couldn't possibly post all their names here. But, first and foremost, we'd like to thank all the fans that made our live gigs possible and successful. We couldn't have done it without you! A special thanks also going out to:
