Favorite thing about Thursdays

#AlternativeFacts is a great balance of news on the big alt bands as well as the new names on the scene. It's chart insight you can really only get from the peeps at Billboard, plus coverage on new music that is honestly all *SO* good.

C Payne is king

The best alternative podcast was Alt In Our Stars. Now the best alternative podcast is Alternative Facts. I love C Payne's good humor and knowledge. Happy to be a subscriber!
