In May of 2014, Bandwagon Network Radio started broadcasting on the internet. Some of these bands were “on-the-air” on that night; the rest came on board the bandwagon before the end of the year.
To recognize their faith and support in the idea of a full-time Independent Internet Webcaster playing only Independent Artist Music, BWNR has created the “BWNR Indie Hall of Fame”. The following list of artists are the 2019 “Charter Members” of the Hall. Click the band name to learn more about them.
