Welcome to our radio station! Right now, the radio station is actually just a collection of MP3s created by the staff and friends of Motel Magazine. In the future, we may return to doing live broadcasts. For those of you who experienced the live broadcasts and would like to experience them again, or for those of you who never heard the live broadcast: we have recordings of those, but we don't have any way to serve, if you want a cd, email us and we'll figure it out.

Small Car Driving?

The name of our radio station comes from the classic song "Small Car" by blues great Marvin Pontiac. You can hear the song by listening to our station. It's also available on the album The Legendary Marvin Pontiac. Once you've heard it, we're sure you'll understand why it's our inspiration.

Motel Magazine Records Presents:


Mudflap is the west coast's premier truckin' band. Get ready for some gear jammin, coffee drinkin, waitress pinchin good times.

DJ Fimbletron

After many grueling years of research, DJ Fimbletron has developed an incredible new machine, the Fimbilattor that brings new clarity to even the most jumbled vocal tracks. Listen for yourself!
