80's Alternative Rock was once known as College Rock.  It was underground, played only on student-run radio stations in the United States and Canada.  College Rock was a combination of Post-Punk and New Wave music.  
And now that New Wave Summer has ended, it's time for KJRW to go to college.  Soon you will hear from R.E.M, The Cure, The Replacements, The Smithereens, They Might Be Giants and much, much more on KJRW...
