The Monday Morning Alternative Music Meeting

October 30th, 2023

Happy Monday! Hope you had an amazin’ weekend! iHeartRadio ALTer EGO ‘24 is already sold out for January 13th. Tomorrow (10/31), WRIS (THE RESISTANCE 106.7)/Madison, WI celebrates its 6th birthday. It was a Halloween sign-on in 2017.

Green Day makes history with their first song since 2010 to debut in the Top 5 on the Alternative chart. Congrats to Warner’s Rob Goldklang, David Ravikoff & Crush’s Garrett Capone. Green Day was an easy pick and is #1 on New Music Discovery Picks Of The Week. KITS (Live 105)/San Francisco becomes “Evil 105” on Halloween at 7p. You can find all the details in The Latest Alternative News. Wait till you see the latest spooky cover songs by Duran Duran in Music Info.

We kickoff the first day of the week with new Mediabase Alternative reporter WFZZ (104.3 The Fuse)/Green Bay MD Eddie Ybarra sharing his “Famous Firsts.” David Jacobs & the Mom+Pop family will have something special for you tomorrow for Halloween. First, I’ll unpack this week’s Mediabase Alternative chart and get you the highlights you need to know.
