FatCat Radio - As heard in 111 countries !!

FatCat Radio's worldwide reach has expanded yet again - now heard in 111 countries / territories - with confirmation that Botswana has Clicked on the Cat.

"Botswana, officially the Republic of Botswana , is a landlocked country located in Southern Africa. The citizens refer to themselves as Batswana. Formerly the British protectorate of Bechuanaland, Botswana adopted its new name after becoming independent within the Commonwealth on 30 September 1966. Since then, it has maintained a strong tradition as a stable representative democracy, with a consistent record of uninterrupted democratic elections.

Geographically, Botswana is flat, with up to 70 percent of its territory being the Kalahari Desert. It is bordered by South Africa to the south and southeast, Namibia to the west and north, and Zimbabwe to the northeast. Its border with Zambia to the north near Kazungula is poorly defined but at most is a few hundred metres long"

Welcome to FatCat, Botswana! For the complete list of confirmed countries (from A-Z) see below.

Introducing: Federation of Horsepower

Federation of Horsepower is the rock and roll machine from Kansas City, Missouri, USA.

"Motorhead meets Molly Hatchet meets Misfits. Fast cars, late nights in smokey back rooms, the smell of stale beer and cigarette smoke, sin, redemption and more sin. This is the music of Kansas City’s Federation of Horsepower."

A Word From Management: Station IDs & Song Intros

After nearly six full days of 'radio silence' other than a continual desperate plea from yours truly for new station ids & song intros, FatCat Radio is once again back to broadcasting the very best unsigned and independent rock and blues music. That being said I'm not sure most of you realize how close I was getting to pulling the plug on FatCat for good. Yes, after 12.5 years and over what you may consider a trivial matter. Well, it's important to me. It is the only thing I ask from bands and listeners. Well, that and spelling our name right!

We ALWAYS need new station identification and song introduction promos. They are a huge part of what makes FatCat Radio unique. Plus it's just cool as hell to hear from the bands and listeners themselves and a great way for everyone to truly be a part of the station. That is why I ask again and again. And that's why I get so fed up with being ignored or having bands promise to provide station ids and then never coming through. So, as I've done once before, I had to take the extreme measure of shutting down the music to get what I wanted. It's a shame it took almost a week. It's a shame the actual haul of new station ids/song intros was so small. But... it was enough to make my point. And enough to get the music back on the air. So, thank you very much for those who literally helped save the station yesterday.

Show your appreciation for FatCat Radio. Make the guy who runs all things FatCat happy. Record a station identification, song introduction, or your very own 'Click on the Cat' promo.
