Got a demo CD?
Then check out 'South Live' .
South:Live is a Sunday evening unsigned music programme from 7-9pm which is broadcast on both BBC Southern Counties Radio and BBC Radio Solent.
Its principle focus is to promote and support emerging/unsigned artists from within our broadcast region so virtually all of the music that is played during the show is from music that listeners have sent in. The show also features weekly live sessions performed from artists selected from the demos that have been sent in. These sessions are performed with a full PA from the front foyer of the studio to a live studio audience previously unheard of on local radio. Forms here
