What's it all about?

Above all else it's about the music, something that today corporate/commercial radio uses to fill in the space between ads—if they play any tunes at all. As the ancient scrolls tell us, that wasn't always true; there was a time when radio brought a wide variety of music, full of all kinds of styles and sounds, into our lives. It turned us on to new artists and songs, and helped us remember old ones. But that was a long time ago, and the current corporate AM/FM radio wasteland shows no sign of changing any time soon.

So what's an adventurous, enterprising music fan to do? Embrace Internet radio, of course! Now, radio that's eclectic, thought provoking, unpredictable and fun is once again available, right here at Lucky Dog. Rock, Pop, Soul, R&B, Folk, Country, Reggae, Jazz, Blues, Comedy and whatever else works—expect to hear plenty of what you know and love, some things you may half remember from long ago, other stuff you might never have heard before and a nice helping of new material from both your favorite artists as well as new ones. It's all mixed together in a manner that highlights the connections—whether lyrically, sonically or both—that exist between tunes. There's a huge amount of wonderful music out there that never gets played on corporate radio; the goal at Lucky Dog is to play as much of it as possible. (Or even more than possible . . . although, come to think of it, that's not actually possible, is it? But if it were, you can trust LDR would make it happen. It's called dedication, damnit.)

So take a look around, get a feel for the place, and if you decide to tap into the stream, simply follow the easy-to-follow steps on how to listen. Your ears will thank you, LDR will thank you and the future of Internet Radio will thank you. Sorry to put it all on your shoulders but, well, there it is.
