New York, NY (PRWEB) October 16, 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 Annie, showcasing the legendary label Sub Pop Records. This exciting new show will feature a stacked playlist with many of the talented artists found on the label. The "Sub Pop Records Showcase" is the latest installment in the station's impressive series of record label specialty shows.
Sub Pop Records was established in 1979 as a fanzine based in Olympia, Washington. In 1986, founder Bruce Pavitt moved to Seattle, Washington and released Sub Pop Records' first LP. Releases from groups Green River and Soundgarden followed. Sub Pop is especially known for its contributions during the Grunge Era of music, particularly after signing a little band called Nirvana. Over the course of the years, Sub Pop has been home to bands such as Combustible Edison, Sebadoh, Mudhoney, The Shins, Hot Hot Heat, The Postal Service, and many more great artists.
"I'm thrilled to be hosting the sub pop label showcase," says DJ Annie, whose playlist will include songs from artists such as The Go! Team, The Postal Service, Flight of the Conchords, Band of Horses, and Dntel. "With their impressive roster of artists, Sub Pop is definitely a leader in the independent music community. We're happy to add their music to the BTR library!"
The "Sub Pop Records Showcase" is 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 Annie's picks from the Sub Pop Records roster by visiting http://www.breakthruradio.com.
