Music. Writing. Want to combine both into a handmade totem of sonic awesomeness? We (Radio 1190) are looking for people like you (or you) to contribute your thoughts and brilliant insights and fragmented conjectures—anything you care to fling at us, really—that bears some association with independent music and radio.
