LOUD & LOCAL - SUNDAYS @ 11PM
How to submit your music for Loud & Local:
1. Have a recording. Preferably CD, but MP3 is ok too, as long as it doesn't sound like garbage. If you have a cassette, punch yourself in the face, then get a CD. You can send or bring your stuff in to us at:
C/O Nick Nash
1015 Main Street
Wheeling, WV 26003
2. E-mail me your info HERE. General stuff...band name, members, some bands you've played with. I don't care about your shoe size.
3. Make sure the tunes you're sending me are radio friendly. I know you can't avoid using the F-word in that song about your ex-girlfriend, but edit it out for broadcast. I like my job, and I'd rather not lose it.
4. Don't get all jacked if I don't pick your music to be on the show. I get a ton of CDs and demos every week. Sometimes your CD isn't of very good quality, sometimes the songs just aren't very good. I mean this in a good way. Keep playing, keep recording, keep submitting.
I started Loud & Local in 2007 as an outlet for local rock bands to have their music heard by a mainstream audience. I'm not a judge - the audience is.
THIS IS A VELOCIRAPTOR.
Gahhhhh an exploding sperm whale!
This is a real Twitter exchange between Wheelingite @illie_may and soft-rock superstar Bryan Adams, who is playing the Capitol Theatre tonight.
@Illie_may looking forward to that!— Bryan Adams (@bryanadams) November 21, 2013
BAH GAWD KING!
As you may know, I'm a big Jean Claude Van Damme fan (Bloodsport, anyone). Here he is being a badass.
GET IT ON!
