Slacker Launches Grunge: 20 Years Later Radio Station

Slacker are celebrating the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's Nevermind with the new Grunge: 20 Years Later station.

This radio station, hosted by legendary Seattle DJ Marco Collins, looks back on the grunge genre, its influencers and its legacy. Grunge: 20 Years Later is now available for free in the Slacker Spotlight section on leading smartphones, home entertainment devices and on the web here.

This station is hosted by Slacker Radio DJ Marco Collins, who had a legendary career as a DJ at "107.7 The End" in Seattle during the grunge explosion.

He is known for his influence during the grunge era and he is still considered one of the great tastemakers and experts when it comes to breaking contemporary music. Marco provides unique first-person commentary and experience of the grunge movement on Slacker's Grunge: 20 Years Later station as well as exclusive interviews from his archives with artists including Courtney Love, Chris Cornell, Mike McCready and more.

"In the 90s, I was thrown directly into a music scene destined to become a revolution," said Marco Collins. "Outside of Seattle, the scene seemed enormous, but here in the Northwest, it was a close-knit community. Everyone knew each other. It was like a family. There were so many bands and a lot of unsung heroes. On this station, I tried not only to focus on the superstars but to highlight the seminal smaller bands."

Marco Collins' experiences have also been included in Mark Yarm's "Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge" which is available today. "Everybody Loves Our Town" captures the grunge era in the words of the musicians, producers, managers, record executives, video directors, photographers, journalists, publicists, club owners, roadies, scenesters and hangers-on who lived through it.
