Roots of Alternative Podcast

Let’s take a trip back in time!

How has alternative music evolved over the years? What paved the way to the alternative music we all know and love today? Who were The Cure? (Wait… are you kidding me?!) This podcast seeks out to answer those questions as we discover the Roots of Alternative.

In each episode, our hosts recap some of the biggest chart topping hits in alternative music, starting in 1980 until we make our way to 2020. Our hosts, 95X personalities Jack & dXn take you on this journey. dXn, who is an expert on the music industry and lived through the early years of the genre, schools Jack, who wasn’t even born until 1990 and had never been exposed to a lot of early alternative in the first place.

It’s basically a show of two guys, from two different generations who both love alternative music. Expect a lot of nostalgia and a lot of discovery as we define the legacy and explore the Roots of Alternative.

The Roots of Alternative Podcast is sponsored by Syracuse Haulers.
