89X, back then...
Christina's 89X was a Canadian alternative rock radio station based in Windsor, Ontario, that primarily served the Detroit, Michigan, metropolitan area. The station was launched in 1991 and quickly gained a loyal following due to its unique mix of alternative and indie rock, which was not widely available on other radio stations in the area at the time. 89X became known for its support of local music scenes in both Windsor and Detroit, with regular shows featuring up-and-coming bands from the area. The station also hosted several high-profile concerts, including the annual 89X Birthday Bash, which brought in major acts from the alternative rock scene. Over the years, 89X faced several challenges, including financial difficulties and competition from other radio stations, but continued to be a beloved fixture of the Detroit and Windsor music scenes.
Many of the artists featured in the episodes are available to you from Arapahoe Libraries, such as The Smiths, The Cure, Depeche Mode, PJ Harvey, Tears for Fears, and The Pixies.
