The Independent Playground also features live bands and guests. You never know who will stop by. Punk rock legends, local luminaries, and adult film stars have all stopped by. Listen to the Independent Playground Sunday nights from 10pm til midnight. It will make you smarter and more attractive to the opposite sex.
