A new Internet radio station is crossing cultural, demographic and geographic boundaries. Radio World Indie went live last New Year's Eve with a lineup that features independent musicians and women recording artists from around the world.

Disc jockeys Luciano, Trokio and Ronnie B, the three main guys who run, operate and program Radio World Indie, work out of home-based studios.

DJ Trokio, who lives in Albuquerque's north valley, whose real name is Patricio Dominguez, is a member of the Piro-Manso-Tiwa Tribe.

He says even though their studios are in Albuquerque, this doesn't mean Radio World Indie is an Albuquerque or even a New Mexico radio station.
