Since its debut as weekly music program on college radio station, Rookery Radio, The Raw Alternative has remained committed to featuring nothing but the best underground and alternative music from across the ages. We’ll continue that tradition by keeping you up-to-speed with all of the alternative scene’s breaking artists, as well as the artists that the mainstream has overlooked or exploited through time. Below are our features from the world of underground and alternative music scenes.
From the Ramones and Misfits, My Bloody Valentine and Ministry, to Radiohead and The Cure, to Rage Against the Machine and Tool, the Beastie Boys and Death Grips, and everything in between, we invite you to take look outside the mainstream and into the artists that have made an impact on the left end of the dial. This is real alternative. This is the Raw Alternative.
