Got dreams of hearing your band on the radio? Help us help you.
We’re still taking submissions for our “NewsWorks Tonight” contest. We’re launching a new radio program, and you could compose the music for it.
Our half-hour show needs a soundtrack. The evening drive time show launches in May, and will complement NewsWorks.org. It’s where you can listen for the latest news, analysis and commentary in the Delaware Valley. And we want a local band to lead us in and play us out.
If you already haven’t, check out the entry form and get to work. There’s $1,000 and a weekly music credit in it for you.
Some of the rules are below:
Original, instrumental tracks
Billboard — Length: 59 seconds
This track is used to advertise what’s on the show right before the news cast. It should have a distinct beginning and ending
Intro — Length: about 1 minute
This track will be used for the beginning of the show. Again, it should have an opening that perks up the ears, but it will be faded out, so it doesn’t need a distinct ending
Promo beds — Length: 29 seconds each
These tracks will be used for short promos that advertise the show. Since the content will vary, they should convey different “moods”; upbeat, contemplative, serious, etc. Submit up to 3 beds in this category
Close music– Length 2:30
this music will play under the credits as we wrap up the show. It will be faded in and out, so it doesn’t need to have a distinct beginning or ending.
