Marcus - Brazil (Jan. 26, 1997)
Hi there !!!
This is Marcus from Sao Paulo, Brazil, and I must tell you something: Rebel Radio Rocks!
Here in Brazil, we can no longer find a decent Rock/Metal radio anymore. Rebel Radio is my best choice to keep on rockin’ and it’s the best way to be on line with the beautiful Chicago (I’ve visited Chicago last year and simply found it awesome. The view from the Skydeck at Sears Tower is great. I also visited Guitar Center at Clark Street – cool store!). Hope you’re not freezing with Chicago’s “polar” winter! Keep up with the great job!
P.S.: Rebel Radio’s home-page new look is great.

I have to say that I’ve always hated listening to the radio. They only play bloody oldies, lite rock, or (ugh!) “Alternative”. In Dartmouth & Halifax (that’s Nova Scotia, Canada), the music around here is pretty dead (unless you like Oasis or Punk!). It’s as if people are scared to listen to it (the ‘devil’s music’). So imagine my surprise when I find your page in an infoseek query for RealAudio! My first thought was that it was just a collection of RealAudio clips and posted to a page…much like my music page on my site. But it was actually REAL TIME!
The first thing I listen to was the Mosh Pit…and fell in love!
The design of the site was very rich, and easy to navigate, excellent job. Now, whenever I’m working on my webpages, RealAudio is playing RebelRadio. I’m just thankful I have unlimited axs!

Rebel Radio’s the best because…..as it is written in the book of Cyril, “It is easier for a rich man to pass through the eye of a needle than it is for a camel to.” It’s also cos you play the best music all day long!!!!

Pop stations suck.
Metal stations rule.
Metal sites rule.
Rebel Radio is the only site for real-time metal.

Per-Ole - Finland (Oct. 12, 2003)
This must be an incredible catch! I am glad to hear Rebel Radio on AM 1240 actually, where some other stations also are broadcastin. The signal has to jump in the atmosphere back to earth and that’s what happening on these occasions. I listened very carefully for a long time and might have heard parts of your program for a longer time. This is the only time, during the top of the hour announcement, when I heard the station with a definite referring to “Rebel Radio” and “Chicago”. Your station really made a good job this night to reach Finland, thank you for making this possible.
This is (actually) the first time I hear this station, while listening here in Central Finland. I use a Japanese communications receiver, NRD 535 D from Japan Radio company and I have a 650 meter long “beverage” antenna….I enjoyed listening to your station, the signal has to travel all the way to Europe and Central Finland.
Thank you very much indeed for this fine moment in front of my radio set. I hope to hear the same station again sometimes, when reception conditions permit.
Jack - Kunsan, Korea (Oct. 6, 1997)
Hey bud, I just wanted to write and say you guys are great! I’m in the military and stuck in Korea, and you’re our only connection to real music and the States.
Thanks for the awesome fucking tunes!

P.S. – Please play more Machine Head for us!
Peter - Sweden (Feb. 22, 1997)
Just want to say that I think your station is the best….
A hard rocker from Sweden!!
Jouni - Stockholm (July 31, 1997)
Thanks for a great radio station! Radio here in Sweden sucks, so Rebel Radio has been lately my main source of qualified noise pollution. Sadly enough, I can only listen when I work, so at home, CDs rule.
If you check the map and begin to calculate time difference between Chicago and Stockholm, you soon find out that I mainly listen to RR when you play non-stop. So what’s the problem? Sometimes you play something I’ve never heard before and it’s impossible to find out what band or song it was and that means no new CDs. I would appreciate if you can put the actual playlist on the web, or even better, stream information directly to the RealPlayer (it that possible?). Regards.
Kostas - UK (May 21, 1997)
Hello from the U.K. Could I have a song please? Anything of Helloween, Blind Guardian, Rage, or any other speed/power band that you have!! Preferably European band!
Thanks for your time.
P.S. It’s for Kostas.
And the story ends…………..
