About The Radio Station
Magic Web Radio…The Early Days…
Good Rock Radio has been on the air since 2010 – undergoing multiple name changes, personnel changes, format changes and technical changes. Since 2010 a lot of people and websites have come and gone. One aspect still remains – our love and commitment to the broadcasting industry.
In the early days we started our Internet radio broadcast, mostly as a hobby or something to do and share with ham-radio friends as “Magic Web Radio” with the intent to bring you all genres of music, from the rural town of Hillsdale – that no other FM radio station can do or will do.
First Name Change – Urock Radio
In 2012 our co-founder “Joe Bick” began a love for rockin’ roll which brought about a change in Magic Web Radio’s musical programing format and name. We changed from “80s 90s 2000s ‘HITS'” to “80s 90s 2000s ‘rockin roll'” – which included local bands. It was this change in heart that brought about our name change from “Magic Web Radio” to “URock Radio”.
It wasn’t long after running a full-blown digital radio station as “URock Radio” that we stumbled into The Urock Radio Network where we were presented with an opportunity – get real and go full time with our broadcast or shit can it altogether.
This prompted a name change – once again – although we are working with and are a URock Radio Network affiliate.
Today, Good Rock Radio, WJYM-DB is a professionally operated Internet radio station, with apps on multiple platforms, fully coordinated with the URock Radio Network. We are located in Hillsdale County Michigan and bring to the table killer content that only a network could provide. We operate amongst a team of nationally and globally connected individuals with the intent to be all-inclusive towards rock in roll music from every decade.
It is our goal to make rockin roll music accessible to all. Hillsdale County, Michigan, the United States, the World, and beyond.
