Dear loyal listeners,

Just a quick apology to visitors to the website.  We are doing some website upgrades which will allow bands to have their own profile and links to their discography, along with reviews and even fan reviews.  We think this is an important addition to the site, but it does involve a lot of data entry and sometimes the system auto generates incorrect entries.  We are slowly working through this and correcting the relevant feeds.  Please stay with us, it shouldn't affect the main audio stream.

Also a warm welcome to The Reprobettes, The Five Outsiders, Alien Blood Transfusion, El Patapsco and The Dead Rocks who are included in the main playlist.

Some of you have been asking about whether we have hosted shows.  The answer is yes, they are on their way.  We will probably time these so that they don't clash with the hosted shows on NorthSeaSurfRadio (that's the other surf station) because we know some of you guys like to catch those shows too.

During the next few weeks, when we have sorted out all of the technical stuff with the website we will begin to diversify the playlists so that the two stations will be more distinct.  We will be including a bit more surf-inspired alt-rock, and perhaps a bit of raggae-rock, cali-reggae etc.  We are still debating whether to include the Jack Johnson / Tom Curren style acoustic rock in our rotation - our main aim is to promote surf bands and help them sell records.  If a wider, more diversified playlist helps bring additional exposure to those bands then it could be a good idea.  Anyway, let me know your thoughts.

Congratulations on making your latest recording, now it's time to be heard by the people who are likely to buy your recordings and attend your shows.  

Airplay on Surf Rock Radio puts your music shoulder to shoulder with other artists in the surf community.  In addition to the best contemporary "surf rock" like Monsters from Mars, Daikaiju, The 427s and Martin Cilia, we will be playing surf-inspired mainstream rock music, and at sundown play a few beach classics from Jack Johnson and Donavon Frankenreiter, and other bands that have been identified as "surf reggae" such as the Marleys, Slightly Stoopid, Steel Pulse, Dirty Heads and Rebelution.

No other station gives such a unique mix of cool music, and promotes such a dynamic healthy lifestyle. Statistics show that listeners click links and buy music that appears on Surf Rock Radio.  It's an incredible discovery platform built to promote your music.

Get airplay alongside the best new surf bands and bands popular within the surf community

Your band won't necessarily get paid for spins, but you won't be charged for airplay like Jango and some other services.  Surf Rock Radio operates based on a more symbiotic relationship between bands, labels, brands and listeners.  Your band will be promoted to the relevant people and we make it easy for music fans to purchase your music (if you don't have label representation you might consider contacting Sharawaji Records who can advise you on how to promote your music and protect your intellectual property, as well as take care of technology and computer/internet marketing stuff).
