Slacker Radio has new radio station called "Grunge: 20 Years Later," which has been created for the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's classic Nevermind. The station is hosted by Seattle DJ Marco Collins, who was a DJ at "107.7 The End" in Seattle back in the day.

"In the 90s, I was thrown directly into a music scene destined to become a revolution. Outside of Seattle, the scene seemed enormous, but here in the Northwest, it was a close-knit community. Everyone knew each other. It was like a family. There were so many bands and a lot of unsung heroes. On this station, I tried not only to focus on the superstars but to highlight the seminal smaller bands," said Marco Collins.

The Grunge: 20 Years Later station will include interviews from Courtney Love, Chris Cornell, Mike McCready as well as others who were associated with the grunge phenomenon. It will also look back on the whole grunge thing, its influencers and its legacy. It's available on Slacker Radio for for iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, Palm webOS and BlackBerry devices.

The Slacker Radio service is available in three tiers -- Slacker Basic Radio service, ad-free Slacker Radio Plus, and Slacker Premium Radio. The Slacker Radio app for iPad was just launched this Summer. They've also created artist-curated stations before.
