Welcome to Renegade Radio

since our inception somewhere around 2002, renegaderadio.net has been about what you don’t hear on the radio. those of us who started this trip and have come and gone over the years were all about music you just can’t hear anywhere else. we’d be out in the scene and hear some incredible stuff and think “any day this will be on FM”.

you see, FM was relevant back then.

but like reel to reel tapes, 8 tracks, am, and the CD, FM really has drifted from relevance. napster in this time has come and gone and song sharing had morphed into the culture overall. we’ve seen a lot of amazing things at renegade and even helped drive a few. but there has always been one constant in that regardless of the medium, the best of the best found it’s way to the top.

it’s defining “best of the best” that gets confusing.

Pop Evil / Cheap Trick / Poison

Toyota Music Factory, Irving TX

i have to admit, if i’m sitting at home thinking of a dream bill, none of these would be on the same one. while we play all 3 of these at any given time and the new cheap trick is even in our rotation (summer looks good on you) we don’t normally play them together and you won’t hear poison really unless it’s an 80s night.
