Indy In-Tune Radio continues to take off, with audiences tripling on average beginning with the official kickoff party. Since that time we've added our first two show hosts, the inimitable Mia Kileen with the Rock Show (Thursdays at 8:00 PM) and Anita Vokill with the experimental electronic Return to Space (Friday's at 10:00 PM), and there's still more to come. On the ratings front, we've been a consistent top-ten Indie-Rock station, solidly on the front page of that Live365.com category, and in the top 15-20% overall. Now, to put this in TOTAL perspective ... the lowest-rated major radio station in Indianapolis is WXNT-AM with just under a half-share. If we compare that (conservatively) to our "unique streams opened," then they still have about 30 times our audience. So ... still a hobby this month.
This weeks show marks the second one brought to me by the legendary Levar Johnson from The Music Mob. This time Eyes on Fire treats us to a sneak peek at their upcoming eponymous release a few months ahead of time. Comprised of five long time veterans with an impressive resume between them, the band is a solid hitting outfit that commands a loyal following and are staples of Indy's Heavy Metal scene. If the material featured tonight, and the comments on their latest video are any indication, this phenomenon is not limited to the metro area, either. Expect big things from them over the next year.
