That is where the listeners are. Social media is a great way to connect with your audience. Facebook, Twitter, RadioVybe and other sites are making radio even more fun.
What makes you believe you are doing enough to promote local music?
I don’t charge for airplay. That’s a good thing right? I won’t receive an award for that, but boosting of local music starts with me. Sometimes it’s the small things.
