Radio: Ocean Blue Avenue
by Rachel Devitt | May 11, 2012
Feeling stressed? Angsty? Pensive? We know just the place you need to go. No, not the bar, you lush. We're talking about Ocean Blue Avenue, our hand-programmed adult alternative radio station. On Ocean Blue Avenue, you can forget your troubles or wallow in -- er, we mean process them. Fiona Apple? The Fray? They feel your pain and they'll fervently whisper-shout about it in your ear over pianos or strings all day, if you'll let them. Postal Service? Radiohead? Those guys know from angst -- and they know just the right dramatically understated beat to set it to. Or how about a little Jason Mraz or Colbie Caillat? Come on, those guys can always make you feel like you're chilling at the beach, no matter how many cubicle walls are closing in on you. And if you're lucky, someone like U2 or Kings of Leon might stop by to jam, in a moving but relatively unobtrusive way. In short, Ocean Blue Avenue is the place to go, not exactly to forget your troubles so much as to work through them. So what are you waiting for? Go find your groove, man.
