1. Live On Air Now DKFM Shoegaze Radio
Back to the top

We specialize in New Tracks Weekend. Up till all hours, digging up, stitching together… somebody’s gotta do it! This pre-Christmas weekend we bring you fresh and classic tunes from RLMDL, By The Sea, Fotoshop, Major Leagues, Tubelight, Fever Dream, Dead Sea, and linea aspera (now sadly defunct). Add new music from The Fauns, Swervedriver, Ceremony, Brief Candles, Tennis System and Adelaida. Plus we’ll trot out an old chestnut from Postcode, “I’ll Be Shoegazing for Christmas”. Apropos, no?

We’re underway at 8 pm Eastern, 5 Pacific Friday night, continuing all weekend. It’s the first weekend we’ll spin some of these tracks, and may be the last weekend for some others. Live365 listeners: it’s your votes that count! Your thumbs-up / thumbs down ratings determine what is kept in permanent rotation. Listen via the Live365 station page at DKFM, on iTunes Internet Radio under “Eclectic”, and on TuneIn Radio for iPhone/Android/Windows.

Some days you just really need a valium to contain the excitement.

525011_10200783452855607_1315595519_nIt’s a new forum for us, and for you. With so many media sources showing just a small piece of the big picture, we think it would help to provide an aggregate picture of the scene that celebrates itself. What’s going on, who’s on tour, what releases are coming up? We hope to provide the big picture going forward, as well as help you know what DKFM is working on to provide you the best radio on the planet for shoegaze and dream pop lovers. Stay tuned, we’re working hard for YOU!

There are some exceptional blogs on this here interwebz, and it’s not our intention to take their place. We are regular readers and admirers of Clank for Breakfast, Sounds Better With Reverb, When the Sun Hits and Shoegazer Alive, for instance. Our listeners have simply asked for a platform to learn about what we’re doing, who we’re following, and what will come next. That’s the target we hope to fill.

In DKFM Radio news, we are expecting our station to shed its proprietary stream within the next few weeks. What does that mean to you? More listening options! TuneIn Radio, Roku player, and all manner of streaming apps and platforms will soon be opened for DKFM. A number of you have specifically asked when you’ll be able to get DKFM on TuneIn, well, your wait is almost over! Keep watching this space for updates. We’re as thrilled about this development as you are!
