Bar/None boasts an incredibly diverse collection of artists who dip into all genres
NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) March 27, 2007
BreakThru Radio (BTR), the Internet's source for the World's Best Independent Music, announced today that it will air a brand new specialty show from DJ Patrick Wimberly, showcasing Bar/None Records. This exciting new show will feature a playlist with several talented artists from the famous indie record label. The "Bar/None Records Showcase" is the latest installment in the station's exciting series of record label specialty shows.
Bar/None Records is one of the most influential and powerful indie record labels in the business. It was started in 1986 by Glenn Morrow and Tom Prendergast. Their first release, the debut album from They Might Be Giants, was an instant success, and put the label on the map. Since then, Bar/None has jump-started many artists' careers, including Of Montreal, Architecture in Helsinki, Puffy AmiYumi (who landed their Cartoon Network animated TV series after the release of their first Bar/None disc) and Mike Miglois (producer behind Bright Eyes and the Saddle Creek record label).
"Bar/None boasts an incredibly diverse collection of artists who dip into all genres," explains BTR's DJ Pat. "Today we'll hear from Architecture in Helsinki, The Spinto Band, Mosquitos, The Slip and more. But this is just scraping the surface of the Bar/None catalog."
The "Bar/None Records Showcase" will premiere on BTR today and will be available in the station's archive and program guide, along with all of BTR's previous record label showcases and other specialty programs. Listeners can tune in to hear DJ Pat's picks from the Bar/None roster by visiting http://www.breakthruradio.com.
