KFAI is a local community radio station that strives to deliver material to the greatest level of diversity possible to serve the community.
Many of their programs get syndicated on public radio stations across the country. Annette Joy was invited to create a concept back in 2008. She made two pilot shows for a concept program called “Smoke Signal: Native Voices on Air”.
Many on the board of directors at KFAI did not understand. It did not occur to them that all of the musicians included in the pilot program were of Native American decent. They thought Annette randomly put together the music selections. We feel the pilot was really good so we are re-publishing it here on BANGWAVE. Enjoy!
Alex Velocity welcomes guest co-host Stuart T. Its a Closed Session. We bet that 90% of you will never have heard any of these songs before in your life. Music you never heard before?? Seriously. That’s the whole idea!
The goal behind this show is to expose you to music that never really made it to the mainstream. We play gems that are still hiding out there in the vast musical landscape. Episodes are posted monthly.
Feel free to fast forward and rewind through it. The whole purpose is to unite fans with good music.
The photo on the left shows the two of them at a Halloween party in 2009. Stuart is dressed as an “Afro-Lenninist” and Alex is Dieter from Sprockets on SNL. cute eh?

Before we became BANGWAVE we started out as VictoryMedia Radio. We started the project and then it languished for two years. In 2012 we relaunched as BANGWAVE.ORG.
One of our better podcasts from the old VictoryMedia radio was Tom Star’s Top 10 Best Pop Albums of 2009, originally released on New Year’s Eve 2009.
In Tom’s own words:
Hi everyone, this is Tom. Thank you for checking out my podcast. It’s an honor to be the first featured host on this new audio blog and podcast site. Every year I compile a list of my favorite 200 songs. This year Victory Media asked me to do a podcast based on my list. I decided to create a new list, the top 10 albums. Enjoy the podcast!
