WLIR/KROQ shout outs at the RnR Hall of Fame ceremony

Postby rewind » Tue Apr 02, 2019 5:48 am

Two of the pioneering alternative radio stations -- WLIR in New York and KROQ in L.A. -- were acknowledged at the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame ceremony last Friday night (will air later). A nice hat tip to the stations that helped break this music:

Duran Duran members Simon Le Bon and John Taylor, who, while inducting musical heroes Roxy Music into the Hall of Fame, gave a nod to America’s alternative radio of the era for supporting both Roxy and Duran Duran.

“Before MTV, there was LIR, there was KROQ on the West Coast — and when we first came here, we had an audience,” said Taylor. “We walked onstage and we had fans, and that was because of LIR. There was no other medium, there was no other way that you could hear cutting edge, English music other than maybe a handful of radio stations. At the beginning, in 1981, that was it.”
