Rock Radio 2.0

The Rock and Roll Radio Spotlight is On: Radio 100 107.8 FM Santarém, Portugal

The radio station of the week is another interesting pick because unless you live in Portugal you can’t listen to it. Radio 100 in Santarém, Portugal features 2 shows that sound really cool and the guy that runs them, Carlos Quintino, maintains blogs for both with links to the bands he features. The first is the BangBang Radio Show broadcast Sundays at 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM local time. To give you an idea of what was played last week you can check out the playlist at the BangBang Radio Show blog here. The other show is RetroPop Radio Show broadcast Wednesdays from 9:00 PM to 10:00 PM featuring Punk Rock to Synth Pop from the ’70s to the ’80s. The blog for that show can be found here. Despite the fact that most of us can’t listen to these shows, the blogs are excellent ways to see what Carlos is playing thus allowing you to at least get ahold of the music from the bands that he features so that you can listen to them at home. I have asked Carlos to let me know as soon as Radio 100 starts streaming on the ‘Net as these 2 shows look great! Ahh, rock and roll lives and breaths all over the world. It makes my heart go all pitter patter!
