But today, we here at Crossfade got a preview. And Miami's Best Music Blog is ...
Jolt Radio joltradio.org
Traditional radio is boring and predictable. Your music-discovery engine needs a swift kick in the ass -- a jolt even. Just turn off that old FM receiver and plug into the constant stream of melody on JoltRadio.org. Playing the best in local, national, and international jams, this is homegrown internet radio you can enjoy all over the world. It drops indie, dance, classics, hits, and anything with a progressive sound. Tune in and you'll catch anything from !!! to the Shins, Grimes to the Magnetic Fields. Even though an internet base makes Jolt global, it represents the 305 in everything it does. Its website offers an in-depth look at all of Miami's happening bands, producers, and musicians, plus a calendar of events cataloguing the best live music in town. You can even stay up to date with artist-of-the-month spotlights. Give Clear Channel a rest; it's making plenty of cash without your car radio. Get involved with your city and your community instead -- all by listening to some great tunes.
