CYBERAGE RADIO.……the mission…the purpose…the music…
CYBERAGE RADIO was formed in 1995 by TOMMY T. After 3 years of hosting the metal show on KUNM,and growing bored with that style of music and its fanbase, TOMMY T. decided to follow his first love and take it to the highest level of music entertainment that he could achieve: with ELECTRO-INDUSTRIAL, POWER NOISE, EXPERIMENTAL, EBM, SYNTHPOP, and all the other dark subdivisions of ELECTRONIC MUSIC,TOMMY T. could expose the masses to the music they were all denied from other d.js and the lame, non-innovating radio stations and clubs alike!
KUNM was very cool and patient and allowed TOMMY T. follow his vision,and the listeners flocked to the show like mad. The underground has a new voice and a fresh style of d.j’ing, non-comprimising, mixed with a passion for the new and upcoming bands and artists working hard to be heard now!
The show has grown and grown over the years to become a standard in the ELECTRONIC / INDUSTRIAL scene over the last 7 years… a unique style that TOMMY T. has developed with this show that is often copied but never equaled.
In 1997, a good buddy — Data King(m.i.a) helped TOMMY T. and CYBOBURNT reach their goal with getting the Rage online and ready to listen to! streaming, and downloading was a new thing for most back then.The 3 became a team,were very lucky to receive some great hosting from Eric A., who really took the Cyberage to the next level. The worldwide consumption would begin!
CYBERAGE RADIO was the first ELEKTRO-INDUSTRIAL show online, and getting listeners hooked right away through advertisements on newsgroups and mailings lists,the party was on! WORLDWIDE listenership was growing quickly.
“Shortly after we started,a host of other new and upcoming d.js were getting in touch with CYBERAGE and trying to figure out how we were doing this… we definately were ahead of our time. (thanks Data!)… of course we gave them all the info,as we wanted to see more industrial, EBM, power noise and synthpop styles getting heard by all… there was just so much great music out that was being overlooked always … by everyone!!!
Cyberage then inspired a whol new slew of d.js to come up and do their own thing on the internet.these were the new trend… the “internet only shows”… playing alot of electro-industrial and in a way, mimicing the CYBERAGE… it is flattering… for sure!”
The CYBERAGE RADIO is a very innovative, interesting and unique show! As we know it is not only a radio show, or strictly an internet only show, it incorporates the best of both worlds.
You can hear CYBERAGE RADIO live! and on air at 89.9 FM if you are in New Mexico,anywhere in N.M. as the station has a 100,000 watt signal.. Saturdays ‑overnight‑1–6am!! prime time party time!
When you hear TOMMY T announce you can tell he is right in there with you, partying, dancing, having a wicked time, and the passion you hear in the breaks, is amazing. I never heard a program like this before. truly an original, and this d.j. does not need a room full of hosts, and guests, he concentrates on the show, the music, and the fans listening. now that is impressive! Listen to that mix! tight, seamless, smooth, and not based on the “beat mixing” that the silly club d.js worry so much about.
This is just original heartfelt d.j.‘ing. Old school attitude mixed with new school images, music, commentary. brilliant!
you can listen to the CYBERAGE LIVE on the internet as well.. the time zone is MOUNTAIN STANDARD TIME 1–6 am saturday overnight (sunday mornings) and this can all be heard at — kunm.org
Each week you can listen to a new 5 hour radio show filled with the best new and upcoming artists, bands, and labels with new sounds to offer. The show is based on the present and future… which is completely rare in this day and age!
Tommy T. (CYBERAGE PROGRAMMER/D.J.)adds.…
The mission.…. to bring new sounds, new artists and great electronic music to more peoples ears than ever before… give bands an outlet to be heard and to make this form of radio more popular than commercial radio… as it should be. we want more people to get into this music, support these great bands and tell more about them all. its always been about the music, always been about the sounds… not the d.j., not the look, not the poseur side of things that the club scene and gothic scene negatively bring to this music. why do you think i do the show alone for the most part… except when my wack split personality syndrome kicks in… and takes over… the power of the music is what commits me to insanity, and pure bliss.:-)
the purpose.… to have the online community checking out this radio show and other cool ones like it… instead of downloading, file sharing and destroying the music, the underground, the bands and labels. the radio shows like this are here for you to hear and sample new music… legally!! yeah! how cool… we are friends with the labels and bands, and we know that without them… there is no radio, no clubs, no fun, no music, believe it or not… “generation d” thinks they know it all… but they didn’t create anything yet to see how bad the illegal bootlegging and sharing of copyrighted materials affect the overall value of art in general. they are the ones doing the bootlegging… hehe so they do not value stuff, until its gone… sharing is fun, when its not your stuff… right!
we respect the artists always, and the labels who put out all the money to release,promote and get these bands heard and rising..they all deserve respect and to have the support. if you like the music… buy it… it will help the bands and great electronic scene survive… really… this is fact. not opinion.
the music… it is from all over the globe… it is from all over the electronic scope… it is from artists with heart and soul… with a passion to go beyond the typical, commercial, easy format… its all about vision… and are connecting with those who do the music, and those who understand and love what we play… the music is what keeps me alive… the music keeps us from losing it all, cause society is weak, and bitterly pathetic without good music.
this is out revolution now… we will not submit, we will not thrive on the past, and mainstream, commercial music that has no place in our show, our lives, our revolution. the commercial bands and mainstream has too much already, we are as far away from any of that as we can be… for good reason.
we let the past be remembered and loved or hated for what it is… now we forge forward into an uncertian future, where we can try to control… and decide what music is heard,and no longer do we need commercial d.js, tv, or anything telling, and playing us the same old heartless, corporate processed crap… thats the revolution. lets tear it all down..the mainstream should be done with..and new music of the electronic age should be heard by more and more .…until it consumes all.
then we reach utopia.
that last part was supposed to be funny…
more Cyberage Radio to come… always… and forever.
