Nadia LogoHave you guys been listening to Indie 88 yet? (88.1 on your FM Dial!)  The station launched just a few short weeks ago and has quickly become my favourite radio destinations.  Now that their announcing staff are rocking the airwaves all day and every day, my morning drives are all that much better for having another non shock jock listening option.
