WRUW is now accepting submissions from local and regional bands who wish to play Studio-A-Rama.
Studio-A-Rama, WRUW’s annual outdoor, day-long event is a great opportunity for local and regional bands to showcase their talent and have their music heard. Studio-A-Rama takes place in the Mather Memorial Courtyard, just outside the WRUW studios, on the campus of Case Western Reserve University, and typically attracts 800 to 1000 people. In addition, WRUW simulcasts Studio-A-Rama at 15,000 watts over the airwaves as well as on the internet at www.wruw.org. With WRUW celebrating its 40th birthday in 2007, this year's Studio-A-Rama is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet!
Interested bands should send a CD consisting of 3 or more songs to: WRUW-FM, Attention: Studio-A-Rama, 11220 Bellflower Road, Cleveland OH 44106. Submissions should also include a band line-up (full names please) and bio, band photo, website address, and contact information. Questions can be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
WRUW will review all submissions received by July 15th from local and regional bands who wish to play and have not participated in the past 4 years. All types of music will be considered, and musicians that have submitted music in the past, but weren’t chosen to play, are encouraged to do so once again.
Since 1982, WRUW has staged this free annual concert designed to thank listeners for their ongoing support throughout the year. An enthusiastic audience response during the annual on-air fundraiser enables WRUW to continue hosting Studio-A-Rama as well as fund live web casting and weekly show archiving.
Studio-A-Rama is one part of WRUW-FM’s commitment to broadcasting local bands live. The "Live From Cleveland" show broadcasts local bands from the WRUW-FM studios every Thursday evening from 10 until 11pm.
Studio-A-Rama will take place in the Mather Memorial Courtyard outside the WRUW FM studios on the Case Western Reserve University Campus. The Mather Memorial Courtyard is located at the corner of Ford and Bellflower Roads, one block north of the Mayfield/Euclid intersection and one block east of the Cleveland Museum of Art.
