Music Submission, Podcast Interviews, Radio…

The interview process:

  • We do most of our interviews using streamyard. You will not need to install anything to use streamyard, but you will need a device that has a microphone and a camera (laptop, phone, tablet, etc) The interview goes out live on our Facebook page.  You can view examples of the livestreaming interview sessions, here. We then take the audio from that interview and turn it into our podcast/radio show by editing the audio and adding unsigned music.
  • Our second choice is Skype. You have 2 options on your end, you can install it on your smart phone (Each band member needs to be on a separate phone. Video & speakerphone should not be used) or use it on a computer. If you are going to use it on a computer, we request that you run it through a mixer and have a professional microphone and headphones at your disposal. You can find directions on how to set the mixer up to use skype here. We will probably use OBS and stream this live on our Facebook page, too.
  • Our third choice is  using Zencastr.com. If you choose this option, we request that you run it through a mixer and have a professional microphone and headphones at your disposal. You can find directions on how to set the mixer up to use skype(Zencastr) here.
  • Our last choice is a phone call using our mixer. This gets the worst audio and takes a lot more set up time.

For the Pennsylvania Rock Show:

We pre-record our interviews and edit them before publishing as the podcasts. We are also streaming the interview sessions live on our Facebook page as they happen. Our goal is to get about 25-30 minutes of usable interview in 2 or 3 segments for each 60 minute show. Please be prepared to talk about your band history, upcoming shows, influences, venues, current issues on your local scene, other bands in your scene, etc. For more of an idea of what to expect, listen to some of our past the Pennsylvania Rock Show Episodes.

Lastly, try to keep your language at about a PG-13 level or better.
