I, like most, believe in supporting the local music scene of any town. Bands in every town are the future of music. Remember that almost every band you hear on the radio were once a local band playing covers in a dive bar for next to no money just trying to catch a break.
Every-so-often we at Q103 get asked what it takes to get a band's music on the radio. Though there is no real simple answer for this, there are ways though not to go about it.
