Tuscaloosa finally has a new alternative to the same old, boring radio... and it's here. This is Alt 1017, your home for the best Alternative music on the airwaves--and so much more. 

We couldn't find a radio station that played artists like Alice Merton, St. Vincent, The National, The Killers, and Moon Taxi--so we just made our own. Alt 1017 is going to play the biggest legends of alt rock, too; you'll hear tracks from artists like Nirvana and Radiohead along with new music discoveries from Bishop Briggs, The War on Drugs, and Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats--and we're also hooking you up with music from acts you love like Imagine Dragons, Portugal. The Man, Muse, and Walk the Moon.

We've got big plans for the future, and we're psyched for y'all to be a part of them. Look for Alt 1017 to be your go-to for what's trending on the Tuscaloosa music scene. We'll have tickets to the best shows and festivals this summer--and we've got even more surprises up our sleeves.

So get ready, Tuscaloosa. Sign up for the Alt Army now, and join us in celebrating the dawn of a new day for radio here in West Alabama. From now on, it's nothing but good vibes and even better tunes!
