CBGB.com has undergone some changes as of late, not the least of which was the debut this past Monday (01/25/10) of CBGB Radio via the IHeartRadio network.
...CBGB Radio captures the spirit and intensity of the legendary club formerly located at 315 Bowery on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The station features music from the influential artists that performed at the venue, including Ramones, Blondie, Talking Heads, Patti Smith, as well as new underground rock artists. Additionally, listeners will hear snippets of artist interviews and commentary from those who knew CBGB best.
“If we can’t go to CBGB’s anymore, at least we have a place where we can listen to CBGB’s,” said Lenny Kaye, the influential musician, writer and producer best known for his work as guitarist for poet-rocker Patti Smith. “All that’s missing is the gruff and sweet voice of Hilly welcoming you to the dive…”
“CBGB was the center of a cultural revolution and remains synonymous with underground rock,” said Bob Gruen, the legendary rock photographer who captured countless indelible moments at the club. “CBGB Radio will continue the club’s legacy for millions of music fans across the globe.”
