20th Anniversary of Divakar on 106.5 The End !

Twenty years ago in Charlotte, 106.5 FM The End took over the radio airwaves with the latest Rock & Roll tunes. This new station wasn’t entirely devoted to just playing the record labels’ favorite bands, they introduced Divakar and for 90 minutes Charlotte’s local bands got to hear their songs on the radio.

It was amazing.  It still is.

Divakar’s 90 Minutes has since grown to 120 minutes of local and regional bands.

We have been honored to have had several songs in rotation and been in the studio a few times for interviews and live performances.

To celebrate, Divakar is throwing a Party!  Bands include (alphabetical order): Bum’s Lie (reunion), Grown Up Avenger Stuff, ISH, Lü Fjord (semi-reunion), Radio Lola, The Sammies, Tattermask, The Waves, and The Funky Geezer

Divakar Anniversary Show!

20th Anniversary Show!

“The book of love has music in it”

We know most of you, and a lot of you like to read while you listen to music.  Through a recent collaboration, you can read about us & the music industry in the newly released “Navigating The New Music Business as a DIY & Indie – coming clean with the down & dirty” by Angela K Durden.

We are featured in Chapter 15 as we dish on our early years, and tell some tales of the road.

Angela also gave us a shout-out in the acknowledgments, and we are very honored.

ack

This is an interesting & informative book, not only for those in the music industry, but also for the fans who want to support their favorite bands.

You can pick up your copy on Amazon here!
