Last year on http://www.tacomaweekly.com, we had the Weekly Mix Tape, sort of a virtual compilation that showcased the best in regional indie rock and hip-hop. Now we've taken it up a few notches with our new Radio 253 channel, which you'll find at http://www.tacomaweekly.com/radio253.
Now we stream massive local mega-mixes – we're talking 50 to 80 songs with no repeats – that let you sample some of the best bands playing clubs around the Sound. We've got local pop, punk, metal, country and indie-rock; and we even pay homage to the classic bands that paved the way for all of that, the Sonics, the Wailers and the Ventures. Check it out at http://www.tacomaweekly.com/radio253.
And we're always looking for more fresh tunes to showcase. Send your band's mp3s for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org.
