MtAltra was a website from January 2002 through March 2004 serving the alternative music community.
It was aimed mainly at alternative radio programmers as a research tool. But it was also presented
in such a way so that the alternative music fan could appreciate the information.
Because the format began to fall steadily in popularity from the late 1990s on, it became apparent by 2004 that not even
this extensive site full of data, lists and commentary could help turn the format around, so the
site ceased to exist after March 31, 2004. The web pages have been preserved here for fans of the
alternative format from its roots through 2004. For an in-depth look at how the alternative radio
format developed and then reached its peak of influence in the nineties, read The Rise
of Alternative Radio.
