Are You Xperienced?
Two Greater Nippertown musicians – David Decker of Left Hand Shake and Art Fredtte of the Lawn Sausages – have been named co-Program Directors/Music Directors of the Malta-based radio station WAIX 106.1 FM/1160 AM.
Beginning today (June 1) with a “preliminary launch,” the Empire Broadcasting station – now dubbed “Albany’s Independent Experience,” “The Experience” or simply “The X” – has flipped 180 degrees from business talk radio to what Decker describes as “contemporary alternative rock and classic alt-rock with some deep-cut classic rock mixed in.”
Regular programming of the new format will begin at 6am on Monday (June 5) with “Brad in the Morning.”
Decker adds, “We intend to play an unprecedented amount of locally/regionally produced music.”
