LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – No radio station in the world has the guts to do what shock jock Tom Leykis is about to do.

At the stroke of midnight on Thursday (Jul. 1), Leykis will launch NewNormalMusic.com, a nonstop, 24/7, streaming music channel that promises to play only new music by edgy, rising artists.

Leykis says he’ll start by playing 50,000 new songs without commercials, none of which will be more than a year old.

He’ll take song requests from listeners at (323) 389- 1730, so every indie artist out there has a chance to expose their tunes.

Leykis says their most popular requests will be played often in rotation so that formerly undiscovered tracks have a chance to become “as popular as any Lady Gaga song.”

The host figures that this is the only way for up-and-coming artists to get decent airplay because regular radio stations seldom take risks on promoting truly new music that isn’t safe or “conservative.”
