Perform on the air

Posted by slbradio January - 7 - 2010 - Thursday Comments Off on Perform on the air

SLB has been featuring live performance for over 30 years and currently has three weekly opportunities for your involvement:

  • Youth Expression Showcase (10:05 and 10:35 a.m. Eastern), during which soloists, ensembles, instrumentalists, singers, poets, writers, artists, actors and other youth in Grades K – 12 perform and discuss their work in virtually any genre, including those beyond our typical featured music.  This segment is not limited to the “best of the best” but is rather a celebration of individual achievement and devotion to craft.  Segments typically are 15 minutes long (including interview) and may be scheduled by teachers, parents or youth.
  • Live at Eleven (11:05 a.m. Eastern), during which professional touring musicians and regional musicians play live in our studios in a mix of performance and interview.

These segments are typically booked 8 to 10 weeks in advance.  Additional information is available from Jon Bindley at  jon at slbradio dot org.

We primarily play acoustic music with minimal studio production in acoustic genres including traditional and contemporary:

  • Folk
  • Bluegrass
  • Jazz
  • Swing
  • Blues
  • Singer/songwriter
  • Vocal
  • Novelty
  • Children’s

We welcome music from record labels as well as independent artists.  CDs should be sent by mail to SLB, P.O. Box 100092, Pittsburgh, PA 15233.  Digital music may be submitted by emailing slb at slbradio dot org with a link to a site where the files are located.  Please do not send the actual digital files.

We review everything we receive but cannot return recordings sent to us.  Due to the volume of music submitted, we cannot always respond to every inquiry personally.
