Despite Clear Channel’s hold on the major airwaves, word has it that Houston’s Southern Backtones latest release (2004’s self-titled album) is saturating college radio airwaves throughout the U.S. and Canada. Current tracking shows that 70 radio stations in North America have reported significant to heavy airplay of the band’s music — with good reason.

7.29.05 — Red Fez, Austin
7.30.05 — Helios, Houston (acoustic performance)
8.4.05 — Scout Bar, Clear Lake
8.19.05 — Jacks, San Antonio
