I wish I could tell you there are hundreds and hundreds of opportunities for independent producers to get their work on the radio. Sadly, I can’t.
But, one consistently good outlet for indy work is KCRW’s “Unfictional” radio program and podcast. Weekly, Unfictional features a half hour of creative and ear-catching work from freelancers and the program’s producer, Bob Carlson. In fact, I feature Bob’s superb story “The Seance” on today’s HowSound — it’s your Halloween treat.
And, speaking of opportunities for freelancers, maybe there’s one right in your backyard! Check out AIR’s Localore Project. Localore is a national initiative of the Association of Independents in Radio fostering connections between indies and local stations.
Enjoy this HowSound then go get your own work on the air!
