Alt Rock Classics

Listen Now play-now

Description

channel-cover
Hear New Wave when it was really new. Revel in alternative music from the 80’s and 90’s era. The bands, the style and the spirit that redefined what rock was to become. With a heavy influence of British bands like Depeche Mode, the Cure, Blur, Morrissey and New Order bolstered by American stalwarts like REM, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Live, Talking Heads and Nirvana . More than flannel and fashion statements, big hair and bad old videos... Alt Rock Classics are just that.

Music Programmer

programmer-portrait

Patrick Binette

As a student in Cinema, Patrick sought a temporary, more rewarding than fast food, job and was fortunate enough to be hired by a record store.

He was immediately hooked on both film and music which led naturally to the production of music videos and TV (Musiqueplus) as well as promotion and marketing for several labels (A & M, Polygram, Universal).

After a second journey to television as director of music programming at Musiqueplus, he finally joined the music programming team. A musical road trip of hundreds of concerts and thousands of songs that spans over 20 years .... already!
