The Casual Sound playing only the finest Indie, Britpop, Shoegaze, Baggy, Madchester, C86, Post-Punk, Twee, and Garage tunes. Every week award-winning club DJ Tyler Jacobson, Jake Ryan (formerly of Danger Radio), and Lenny compile a setlist of the best counter-culture sounds, both new and old. Born of Denver, CO's Indie 101.5 in 2009, the station's weekly Danger Radio show morphed into a podcast at the station's demise. Over its five year lifespan, the podcast generated a healthy international following. After a three year hiatus, Tyler and Jake brought the show back to life as The Casual Sound, and included their good friend Lenny as co-host.

Solid stuff

Plenty of great music and banter. These boys know their stuff. It’s great being introduced to new music and bands but being content as well. Cheers.

...This is this!

Remember those friends that could take one band you loved and turn you on to 10 more you never heard of before? Listening to The Casual Sound is like that, without all the cigarette burns on your couch. Get ready to hear classic baggy and britpop, along with new music inspired by the masters.
