FRONTIERS WEB RADIO! The absolute best in AOR and Melodic Hard Rock! ONLINE NOW!




It's no secret that FRONTIERS RECORDS is the best modern AOR label out there... bar none!  And it's also no secret that their roster, from classic bands like Asia and Winger to great new modern AOR bands like Wig Wam and Auras, is filled with some of the finest music being made right now.

Now, I must admit that I am a longtime Punk, New Wave and Synthpop nut who was buying the latest albums from The Undertones, The Clash, Depeche Mode The Jam, Split Enz and Madness when all my friends were grooving to the latest Journey, Yes, Genesis and Foreigner hits.  I was so not in tune with what AOR had to offer, yet I appreciated the fact that it inspired and delighted so many people all around the world.

It was in 1982 that my musical tastes and those of my friends collided when Asia released their debut album.  Of course, my Punk/New Wave friends didn't understand why I was so smitten with this band made up of 'dinosaur rockers' while my AOR friends were thinking that I'd finally made my move away from 'the dark side'.  In all actuality, it was because I had an absolute LOVE for a good melody, regardless of genre.

Now, nearly 30 years later, I still love it all.  Over the years, my appreciation, love and desire for AOR has grown and it's not just the classic bands that I listen to.  The Frontiers label has released some great music over the years and I'm anxious to hear every single album they put out.  While lack of finances make that nearly impossible, I do get to hear many of their releases and I'm smitten by it all.  So much so that, if I were to win the lottery, I would open an account with the label and buy one copy of every single album they release!

So, it is so exciting to know that the label now has a web radio station where they play the finest that AOR has to offer. From classics to soon-to-be classics, Frontiers web radio is not just for me, it's for ALL OF US!  It's a new way to listen to your favorites!  Sure, it may not play my old Punk and New Wave favorites, but that's OK because I get to hear NEW stuff and I'm always on the prowl for new songs that will work their magic and worm their way into my heart.
