No Facebook.  Bad.

No Facebook. Bad.

After over 5 years in its current form, the 107.5 andHow.FM Facebook page is persona-non-grata at Zuckerberg Hall. In spite of our numerous financial transactions with the social media feed’s attempt to turn a profit with our ads over the years.  As of 25th March 2016, our Facebook page has been taken down. There was no warning. No messages to advise of anything that required a review based on their convoluted, confusing, acceptable use policies. We were not aware of any questionable content and have extensively reviewed a RSS feed of our Facebook page post history and are still scratching our heads.  We still have had no communication from them, before or since this incident. One minute we were there, the next minute.  *POOF*!  Nothing. Nada. Nil. Nein. Nyet. This was a on-going and organic collective effort from our international on-air personalities and announcers such as Chris Munday,  Jeff Shelton, Marty Kuhrt aka. Marvin Hamster, Brian Blum, Jonathan L, Ola, Mark Copeland, Dennis the Menace and the indie music blog FEW Music.   A place where we could all regularly jointly promote our extraordinary passion for music with colorful and talented personalities, to create and maintain a platform for nurturing and developing the indie rock entity, that after 17 years is simply known as andHow.FM. We have submitted the standard “what the hell is going on here?” messages via their “Report an Issue” support portals.  Which you can do yourself, any little support certainly couldn’t hurt our efforts for reinstatement.   You can click here and have your say! The original URL of the page – https://www.facebook.com/107.5andhow We are expectedly a bit disappointed in their draconian efforts to do something so heavy-handed, based on a dogma that is completely unknown to us or anyone else at this stage.  This is especially disturbing because we were also long time paying customers of Facebook Ads as well.   But in spite of the perceived setback, we are still jamming the free world, one person at a time since 1998. P.S.  We are still alive and well on Twitter for those of you who are so inclined.  Be indie, Reverend...

The Menace’s Attic

Something old. Something new. Something borrowed. Something dusty. Each week Dennis The Menace goes up to his musical attic (his brain) to create sets of rock and roll music you’ve never heard together before and probably never will again. The songs are put together by a “loose theme” and might share some intricate musical heritage, make for the ultimate segue, or just sound good together. Six decades are in the mix from doo-wop to British Invasion hits and rarities to punk to 80’s New Wave all topped with the best melodic rock of today. Every 7th Show is the 7″ Edition where all music is played off 45 rpm records with lots of flip sides and imports in the mix. Throughout the show Dennis offers one-of-a-kind factoids about the artists and the music, gives away concert and movie tickets, and talks about his daughter Kate a lot! For showtimes check out our live programme schedule! More info &...

Just Another Menace Sunday

Two shows in one & a free sandwich! Hour 1: Interviews and “Musical Sandwich” Sets with Rock and Roll Artists Of Note. These ARE NOT to be the classic 10 minute hype the latest music interviews. Dennis the Menace will be talking to these artists in the casual, conversational style he has become well-known in his over 30 years as an air personality. The interview is followed by the now famous “Musical Sandwich”: Two of the artists songs as the bread and anything they want to play by other artists as the “fillings” in-between. Fact is musicians make the best D.J.’s! Please look at the JAMS interview page to see all the artists that have appeared on the show! Hour 2: All New Melodic Rock and Roll ala Dennis The Menace. From Brit Pop, to American Power Pop, singer/songwriters to bands and “collectives”, major label to indie, if DTM thinks it’s great songwriting, and melody, adding up to the kind of music that makes him say “Omigod!”, he plays it – usually days after he gets it! Which means that the audience tends to hear a lot of “firsts” and they like it that way! For showtimes check out our live programme schedule! More info on guests & playlists! Cloudcasts by Dennis TheMenace on...
