BEST PLACE TO HEAR LOCAL MUSIC ONLINE: SMAsh Radio

Wanna sample the local music talent without having to search that labyrinth MySpace? Then may we suggest — in addition to reading our music section, of course — tuning into SMAsh Radio. The free podcast features choice tracks by unsigned/indie bands from Tampa Bay and across the country, as well as artist interviews, news and concert announcements. Southeast Music Alliance founder Joran Oppelt (full disclosure: He works at CL as an ad coordinator) co-hosts the program with Ryan Bauer. Both are in the St. Pete band Auditorium and rank among the local music scene’s most ardent supporters.
