Default Unsigned????

Ok Who would be interested in a unsigned band channel or show? which one? why?

Would you rather it be a variety of unsigned genres or just rock? or how would it work on sirius?

A one to two hour a week unsigned show would be a nice add to Sirius.

The only stations I think such a program would work on though would be Underground Garage or Left of Center. Hard Attack too, if it were dedicated to heavy music.

I don't like the idea of a channel just for unsigned artists though. XM's unsigned channel, before it recently turned into the canadian rock channel, was entirelly unlistenable to me.

Well any genre can have bad programming, If the bands chosen were good I am sure it wouldve been more than listenable.

I honestly don't think that will ever happen on Hard Attack. Jose, who is the head of programming on that channel, has literally, hundreds and hundreds of CDs to go through and listen and see if it would be a good fit for the channel. With all the new bands and all the new requests from new subscribers. They aren't going to request bands that you they have never heard of.

OH MY GOSH!
A friend of mine told me that Left of center already plays unsigned bands from time to time. Is this true? I havnt heard of most of the bands they play so it would be hard for me to tell. I doubt it though, wouldnt they promote that fact if they did?

actually sirius plays unsigned music from time to time Evans blue got signed BECAUSE of being played on sirius, the rep for their label hollywood told me that when they worked me on their record and i heard that army of me got their deal because of being played on alt nation. AD keeps asking people to send him unsigned music and his myspace blog has something about it too so i think theres something in the works

I'm suprised Jam On doesn't have an unsigned band showcase. Alot of Jam Bands basicly live on the road playing festival after festival, week after week. Jam bands are probably some of the most original bands out there mixing all types of instruments and styles.

i think alt nation or left of center would be the best stations to put an unsigned specialty show on... they seem to have the most variety to their programming
