"Our Slacker station includes our favorite songs of all time, some newer and some older but all of them very meaningful to us," said Tom Higgenson, co-founder and lead singer of Plain White T's. "Working with Slacker lets us share new material and exclusive live performances while providing us with a new way to connect with our fans as we host our very own radio station."
The Plain White T's Artist Showcase station is programmed and hosted by band members Tom Higgenson, Tim Lopez, Dave Tirio, Mike Retondo and De'Mar Hamilton. The station provides listeners with a variety of Plain White T's hits, an eclectic mix of hundreds of hand-picked favorites from a range of other artists including Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Eat World, Kayne West, Pavement and many more, as well as commentary from the band on the tunes that have influenced them over the more than two decades of playing together.
