Listen to The Sanforized Hour on X1


We’re happy to announce we have a new show that streams on X1 and features music that just didn’t get the air play they deserved! Listen to the Sanforized Hour hosted by George B and streaming every Friday night at 9pm EST here on X1! (more…)

Updates to X1


Just to get folks up to speed on things, we’ve been doing some work in the background. One thing is we  added new music to the rotation of the station. Some Creed and Tool and a couple others. So when you listen you should hear them come up now! We also made it a little easier to listen as well! We created a listen live page that is mobile friendly. So you can listen on your mobile devices. We do have plans to have better mobile access, but that is in the future so stay tuned for that.

As always, we’ll have Geek Show, but we’re going to be adding a couple more programs to the station as well. We’re working on finalizing those. We hope that you like these new improvements and we would love to hear from you, what you think of them. Or if you have ideas, please share them.

We also want to take this opportunity to thank the people who are listening and reading. We hope that the content we are posting and creating is entertaining for you. Thanks for visiting and listening to X1 – Albany’s Online Rock!

Who Will Be The First Albany Radio Station To Go All Christmas? [POLL]


Halloween is done and now our collective attention moves to Thanksgiving and the Christmas holiday. We’re already seeing stores like Macy’s and JC Penny’s with decorations and products out for Christmas.

His Dudeness, El Duderino, or if you just call him The Dude, Jeff Bridges has been into music for a long time. Like some other celebs, he has a band and plays out from time to time, and released a few albums.

Albany Stations Switch To All Christmas Music


It’s no secret that I love everything about Christmas. It’s often frustrating when we skip right from Halloween to Christmas though. What happened to being thankful on Thanksgiving? At my retail job I walked in on November 1 and we had started Christmas music in our rotation. I was in Heaven! I am singing along to all of the songs I haven’t heard in a year, and often getting some strange looks from both co-workers and customers – but who cares? I’m in the holiday spirit!

Do Atheists Care About Carrie Underwood?


Carrie Underwood has a new song…who else is excited? I claim to be a huge fan…I only have all her CDs in my car and have been to 7 of her concerts…but that’s besides the point. Carrie is an amazing talent, an amazing woman (soon to be mom), and puts on an amazing show (just ask my husband who even enjoys her concerts and doesn’t mind coming with me). The question is do atheists care about her?

Do I have Eclectic or Poor Taste in Music?


Everyone is going to have their own opinion on this, but it just really crossed my mind when I was heading over to Big Rich’s to record an episode of GeekShow. I’ve always listened to whatever music has peaked my interest, but some of it is just terrible.  Read the rest of this entry

Check out This Parking Lot Jam Session with Eric [VIDEO]


So I’m driving into the parking lot at work, and I see my co-worker Eric jamming on a portable keyboard he had in his car’s trunk. So I stopped by and shot a little video of him. Check him out.  (more…)

Anthony Bourdain Comments on the Douchey-ness of EDM [VIDEO]


I’ll say it right now. I am a fan of Anthony Bourdain, and not a fan of EDM. I don’t get it. To Anthony Bourdain’s point, maybe it’s because I’m getting old or I’m simply “not douchey.”  Read the rest of this entry
