Indie88 is Now Live

Indie needs a home. A place where independent people can share, discover, inspire, gather, become a collective. As Toronto’s first Indie station, it’s our mission to be that place. The station where ‘I’ becomes we.

Listen to the Indie88 launch piece below.

On July 31st at 12pm EST, Indie88 – Toronto’s first indie station officially hit the airwaves. After polling fans on social media with the hashtag #Indie88FirstSong, Indie88 launched with Canadian indie-rock mainstays Arcade Fire.

“We asked our listeners which song we should launch with,” said Program Director, Adam Thompson. “The overwhelming majority asked for Arcade Fire’s “Ready to Start,” so, that was our launch song!”

“Musically, Indie88 will span the last four decades, and will focus on a blend of Indie Folk, Indie Pop and Indie Rock,” said Adam Thompson. “Heavy emphasis will be placed on emerging bands from Toronto.”
