WELCOME TO ALT UNIVERSE TOP 40 and
the SCORCHED EARTH MUSIC SHOW!
Our website works in tandem with the ALT UNIVERSE TOP 40 radio show, broadcast by Radio Channel 292 to Europe each Saturday at 12:00 UTC on 6070 kHz and 9670 kHz; broadcast by WRMI (Radio Miami International) to North America on 5950 kHz every Saturday at 10:00 p.m. Eastern; Simulcast on Saturday nights at MIDNIGHT (Central) on The Summit, WAPS 91.3 FM, Akron/Canton, Ohio; 90.7 FM Youngstown, Ohio; 90.1 FM Athens, Ohio; and broadcast on KDEX 1590 AM, Dexter, Missouri on Sundays at 1:00 p.m. Central.
Each Friday following the Saturday and Sunday ALT UNIVERSE TOP 4O broadcasts, the stereo mix of the previous week's episode will be posted on Mixcloud. Shortwave Airchecks of 23 minutes per show or more are posted when provided to us!
And now, we are proud to also bring you the SCORCHED EARTH MUSIC SHOW, presented every other Wednesday on 5130 kHz at 10pm Eastern, 9pm Central by WBCQ (Monticello, Maine) as part of RADIO ANGELA!
So, what is the deal with our ALT UNIVERSE TOP 40? Well, we play SOME songs just as they were perched on the major American or British charts. And then we fill out the countdown with songs that SHOULD HAVE made the Top 40!
The SCORCHED EARTH MUSIC SHOW focuses on brand new releases that we play for one reason only...WE LIKE THEM!!! While ALT UNIVERSE TOP 40 corrects past chart errors, the SCORCHED EARTH MUSIC SHOW brings a little much-needed attention to current releases, in an attempt to jump start some word-of-mouth buzz about these wonderful new songs!
While we are absolutely serious about our LOVE of music, these shows are supposed to be FUN...especially for our fellow chart nerds!
Finally, please let us hear from you! Drop us a message below if you get the chance and let us know how we are doing! Keep on making the good-hearted adjustments that time and taste demand, and KEEP ON SMILING THROUGH THE STATIC!

Here is a little bit about me. My name is John McMullan. I was the founding member, songwriter for, and co-producer of The Trend. We were active from 1979 through the mid '80's; Other stuff? Wrote, produced, and performed U.S. Pizza Company Jingle, and some radio ID's in 1988. Recorded as solo act for Del-Fi, Big Deal, Not Lame, Kicktone, and Futureman Records. Co-produced recordings with Don Smith, Mike Lawler, and Lewis Martinee in Memphis, Nashville, and Miami, respectively. I am currently practicing law, working (extremely slowly) on a legal novel, and diligently remixing and mastering a large number of my synthesizer-based compositions and solo recordings from the '80's and '90's.
