Birmingham's newest "radio" station launched at noon today -- without the radio.
"The Mountain: Birmingham's World Class Rock" is an internet streaming music station that has positioned itself as a successor to the defunct Live 100.5, which went off the air in February. It will be home to Scott Register's long-running Reg's Coffee House program, which hasn't been heard since Live 100.5 went silent.
The Mountain's Facebook page promises "a world class rock/adult album alternative format" with a "focus on local content through local DJ’s, specialty shows, promotions, and through highlighting local and regional bands."
The station kicked off today, quite aptly, with Jane's Addcition's "Mountain Song." Next up was Muse's "Uprising," echoing the final song played (by a live DJ, at least) on Live 100.5.
From Birmingham Weekly:
Mountain Radio is, at its core, three gentleman: Geno Pearson, Jeff Clanton and Jeremy Harper...
"We talked about it before Live 100.5 even came on the air," says Clanton, "but when they came on we wanted to support that. Then [they] went off the air and we sat and waited and waited. We thought somebody else would come up with the idea, but then we said 'Let's just do this.' We felt like there was a hole in Birmingham for good indie rock and alternative music."
Like us, You might be wondering about their decision to go with an internet based format rather than going back on air with a typical radio station. Pearson explains: "The growth of internet radio over the past 2 years have been tremendous. It is also easier money wise to broadcast on the internet rather than terrestrial radio."
Here's a look at the first dozen songs played by Birmingham's The Mountain Radio...
Jane's Addiction - Mountain Song
Muse - Uprising
R.E.M. - I'm Gonna DJ
INXS - Kiss the Dirt (Falling Down the Mountain)
Mumford & Sons - The Cave
Band of Horses - Laredo
Silversun Pickups - Substitution
Pete Yorn - Life on a Chain
Remy Zero - 'Til the End
NEEDTOBREATHE - Something Beautiful

MSI: is a hot, new, live broadcast and podcast, where our team of self-proclaimed ‘music experts’ investigate and analyze three random songs, submitted by you, the viewers. For an hour, we talk about and debate the music you send us and, hopefully, by the end of the show we are able to all agree on a “Song Of The Week”, which is featured here on the website.
Our panelists hear, viewer submitted, songs for the first time live on the show and then each expert has just a couple of minutes to offer up their true feelings and first impressions of the music. We don’t aim to pull our punches either… If we don’t like it, we tell you… If we think it can be improved, we try and offer constructive criticism… If we love it, you might just make “Song Of The Week”.
The show is hosted by Rich Wildman of iCWeekly, who is joined each week by fellow iCWeekly broadcaster Tom Chianti, a retired sound engineer, and by Ian Husbands, an independent music artist. Our third panelist each week is a, hand picked, special guest to bring even more knowledge to the debate.
The show is broadcast weekly, on Sundays at 4.00pm (EST) / 9.00pm (GMT), on the iCWeekly website, where viewers will be able to watch the live steam and interact with the show in our chatroom. The show is, also, available to download for FREE from iTunes, a few hours after the end of the broadcast. http://msi.icweekly.net/
