Happy Birthday andHow.FM!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! It was 19 years ago on 8th November 1998, that we started off on this wild & wicked ride that is andHow.FM! What a long, strange trip it’s been! Our commitment to remain commercial-free and independent has always kept us thinking outside the box, but we couldn’t have done it without all of you!  Special appreciation goes out to all of our listeners from over 150 countries all over the world! Thanks for listening and especially your gracious and generous support. Cheers to your ears from the guys & gals at andHow!...

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 80s Underground

The 80s Underground

Truly a lost genre of radio programming until now… Underground music [ˌən-dər-ˈgrau̇nd ˈmyü-zik] comprises musical genres beyond mainstream culture. Any song that is not being legally commercialized is considered underground. Such music may tend to express common ideals, such as high regard for sincerity and intimacy, freedom of creative expression as opposed to the highly formulaic composition of commercial music, and appreciation of artistic individuality as opposed to conformity to current mainstream trends. The 80s Underground resurrects the best in 80’s Indie, College, Punk, Post-punk, New wave, and Modern rock. Your host Jeff Shelton devotes a concentrated two hours each week to bring you the best in completely Underground 80’s rock. For showtimes check out our live programme...

The Power Pop Show

The Power Pop Show

If it rocks AND your mom likes it, it’s probably power pop! Power pop [ˈpau̇(-ə)r ˈpäp]  is a popular musical genre that draws its inspiration from 1960s British and American pop and rock music. It typically incorporates a combination of musical devices such as strong melodies, clear vocals and crisp vocal harmonies, economical arrangements and prominent guitar riffs. Instrumental solos are usually kept to a minimum, and blues elements are largely downplayed. The credo of the Power Pop Show is simple: bring quality, modern & classic melodically-driven rock to people who enjoy music. Your host Jeff Shelton meets in the middle, where melody and rock peacefully co-exist. For showtimes check out our live programme schedule! More...
