With little notice besides a message on their homepage, Indie 103, L.A.'s independent rock station, will send out its final radio waves today.
Our friends at The Daily Swarm broke this one today. After a tad more than five years on the air (the station shares its birthday with Jesus, only in 2003), the station is saying its goodbyes with a simple message on its homepage and one last day of broadcasting. From what we can tell the announcement is fairly sudden, and won't sit well with the station's loyal listeners -- 103.1's entry on Urban Dictionary simply says "The best fucking radio station in Los Angeles."
While we couldn't blame the economy for yesterday's closure news, but we're definitely blaming the man for this one. You can listen to the station's final day of broadcasting live here -- they've already got a live countdown going til the final hour.
Our hats off to you, Indie 103. You will be missed.
