The Indie Block comprises the bulk of programming on OtterTunes. In it, the music of independent artists (and a few non-indies who have volunteered their music) are featured.

Origin Edit

The Indie Block was inspired by Aatheus Centauri, whose part-time station featured a number of independent artists, especially those hosted on the Furry Music Foundation. In the comics, Oren purchased the radio station form Aatheus. In real life, Oren opened OtterTunes shortly after Aatheus closed his station and took up the mission of showcasing independent artists.

The Indie Block began with Chama C. Fox and Tambako as its only artists. Shortly thereafter, Al Mackey was added to the lineup, bringing the total time up to five hours. Many more artists were added as time went on, and as of May first 2008, the Indie Block has grown to nearly two days long.

Traditions Edit

Every Indie Block begins with "Preminision" by Al Mackey and ends with "Afterthought", by the same. The final hour also contains an encore presentation of Max Goof's "We are Ferrets".

Other programming Edit

As of May 1 2008, The Indie Block included the show "Audio Prophecy", in which YouTube music guru Modern Oracle interviews some of the rising stars in independent music.
