Best Independent Radio Station

Hollow Earth Radio

You thought I was going to say KEXP, didn't you? Wrong. That'd be too obvious. KEXP already knows it's awesome. No, this one goes to Hollow Earth Radio, a DIY station based in a basement that plays shit so obscure it flies under the radar of even KEXP's well-versed spin jockeys. Some of it is experimental, even downright bizarre—don't be surprised if you come across some drone that only five people in the city would ever listen to voluntarily—but the gems you'll pick up in the process of figuring out what you don't like are worth tolerating the weirdness. It's an online station, so you have to listen to it via the Internet, but like any professional station, it's on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.—Sara Brickner
