No Pants Record Store Shopping – February 2016 Edition

With 41 bands featured on January’s and this one coming in at 38 bands…. That is 79 bands that your radio station has probably never played! Why I liked doing these so much (and the show) was that it was like that word of mouth of promoting your favourite bands to your friends. That “Dude, this is a killer band – this album , this track is my favourite” and then of course you having friends that have similar tastes, will also become excited to purchase items from mentioned band.

Music junkies can’t rely on mainstream radio anymore. But how many of you got stuck in a rut and stopped looking for music because of it? Many of us fell into that rut. Here’s a chance to check out some music and bands you might have not heard of. Stay in the loop, I still have March, April, and May, and June to post. Then one last one in July 30!

Wanna keep this spirit alive? Just use the hashtag when you put out a band link. I will still be on the twitters so I will retweet it out for you!
