The Studio Café debuts in Alexandria

Live music and a little more



“We started out just radio,” said Chambers. In June, 2012, they called themselves Geek Public Radio.

“I just had a table there,” Jacobs points to a space that was formerly just wide-open, empty building. “We started a talk show. It was like Bob and Tom meets pop culture.” Jacobs started bringing local music artists onto the show. “It started growing and growing.”

Now, in what was once that empty space with a table, there’s a recording studio, production booth, DJ booth, offices, and The Studio Café where Chambers used to have books.

The station live streams 24/7, and hosts a number of live shows with central Indiana artists, as well as providing coverage of local high school sports, politics and more. The schedule of live programming has expanded so much that DJ Crash Carney recently joined the RevolRadio team with his all request live mix shows.

Chambers and Jacobs, who have known each other since middle school, decided they needed a more marketable name that was more reflective of pop culture.

Jacobs came up with the mantra, “Radio for the people, by the people.” That prompted Chambers to associate the word ‘revolution.’ The concept transformed into the new name, “RevolRadio.”

When Michael Martin from Muncie’s Folly Moon and FM Music Live came to be on the radio show, he was impressed with what was happening. He threw his hat into the RevolRadio ring, bringing with him a suite of skills that have grown the RevolRadio focus.

“We’re all things media,” said Jacobs. “You can walk in our front door, you can get merchandise made, get your photos done… Basically, we’re an entertainment agency.”

The focus is opening the doors for local, original performers by getting them over the radio waves, onto the mellow stage of the Studio Café and into other entertainment venues.

“We support local,” said. Jacobs. “We’re trying to make a bright spot in Alexandria and provide an alternative for entertainment.”
