Radio shows and webcasts that (may) play DIY pop

Post by RITH » Fri Nov 15, 2013 10:52

What radio stations (FM, web, anything) have played DIY pop songs in the past, and may do so again? Who may be worth contacting about that, et cetera?

KDHX 88.1 FM (from St. Louis, Missouri, USA)

Matt from the program Hindsight has played 3 songs from the Candy Twist compilation in his past two shows, and also plays a lot of other indiepop. Contact: hindsight@kdhx.org

Dandelion Radio (UK Based, Internet Radio Station)
http://www.dandelionradio.com/

BBC 6 Music
http://www.bbc.co.uk/6music
Target these DJs: Tom Robinson, Gideon Coe, Steve Lamacq, Radcliffe and Maconie, Marc Riley, Tom Ravenscroft.
(although Odd Box has struggled to get anything played of late on the BBC, I was interviewed about the label on air by Tom Robinson)

BBC Radio 1
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/
Target this DJ: Huw Stephens (there might be more but I just looked at the schedule and I'm out of touch with who plays what these days).
Never got Odd Box played on here. Huw Stephens has been in touch a few times though, but it never lead to plays :(
not really here

KDVS 90.3 FM (from Davis, California)
http://www.kdvs.org

Drew from the show Apartment Five (http://www.kdvs.org/show-info/2738) played 'Mistakes' by Cave Ghosts from the Candy Twist compilation, and requested MP3s of more songs over email. The show's playlists mix indie like R.E.M. and Pavement with a lot off indiepop, from Afternoon Naps to Northern Spies and from The Groove Farm to Close Lobsters.
