Here in Southern California there is a little radio station called KROQ that had extremely humble beginnings in the late ’70s in not much more than a converted basement. Over the years and through the various phases of new wave, Brit pop, grunge, and just about anything else that you could file under modern rock or alternative music, that station has become the authority on the genre to the point that stations around the world watch what songs make the KROQ playlist and promptly add them to their own.Another noteworthy achievement of the station is that they have one of the longest-running morning shows in the country. Those of you from beyond the airwaves may not readily recognize the name of The Kevin & Bean Show, but when you learn that the careers of Jimmy Kimmel, Adam Carolla, and many others were launched from there, it puts things into perspective.
