Back in June I shared the news that new community radio station Radio Valencia was in the works in San Francisco. After several months of hard work, Radio Valencia is now officially webcasting. Live shows began yesterday at 5pm with a program hosted by DJ Dirty Needles.
Promising a mix of music and talk programming from on-site DJs and hosts handling their shows from remote locations, Radio Valencia has a line-up of 24 programs so far. When there’s no live DJ, automation kicks in, but thus far it’s a stylish mix of sounds that would do any left-of-center college or community radio station proud. It doesn’t hurt that musician TradeMark Gunderson (of Evolution Control Committee) is controlling the 24,000 track library that the automated system draws from.
