The unearthing of the-next-big-thing-before-they-hit-it-big, that excitement of instantly knowing you've just met your new favorite band - that feeling hasn't gone anywhere. It's just buried a bit deeper in the muck of Top 40 tunes. And it's our collective job to dig away until it's easier to spot. BoomboxFM, our curators, people like Alan, the hundreds of independent college radio stations out there, and the everyday dude who takes the time to share killer music with his friends. We're all in this together. As one of our good friends and curators, Alex Mitchell, once told us, "There are a thousand songs out there you'd absolutely love. But you're never gonna hear them unless someone does the work to find them and shine a light on them."
