We heard murmurs about this over the weekend, but the official word just came down. Beginning Friday morning at 10 a.m., Indie 101.5 will be broadcasting at Indie303.com. Being billed as Denver's internet station, Indie 303 will presumably work to build its niche ala WOXY.com (which, incidentally, is in the process of moving its home base to Austin from Cincinnati). According to Whip, who just made the announcement on the air, the station has designs on playing local bands at the top and bottom of every hour in addition to the ones that are in regular rotation and is working on building an iPhone ap so you can continue to listen in your car. Bittersweet news to be sure. In the meantime, be sure to check out the last terrestrial broadcast of the Mile Hi-Fidelity show tonight from 8-10 p.m. Trampolines will be our guests in the second hour.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
