Introducing is a not-for-profit Internet radio station based in Bakewell, UK that plays exclusively  unsigned and unknown songwriters and artists.

We GUARANTEE to play any band or songwriter’s original and unsigned tracks – as long as the sound quality is good enough regardless of genre – we will even play demos !

Have a listen to our station and see what you think !

If you don’t like what we are playing then YOU can change what we play  by getting bands and artists playing the type of music YOU like to send us some tracks!!!  WE WILL PLAY THEM.

Although we are called “Songwriter Radio .org” we are NOT wed to any specific type or genre of music.  What we play is entirely governed by what we are sent . If we get enough of any specific genre we will create a special show to highlight it. At the moment we have the “Home Grown Country Music Show” – featuring UK and Irish country acts and a “Folk, Roots and Acoustic Show”  playing acoustic based music. We’d add Dance, Rock, Electronic, Reggae, Jazz, R&B, Pop, Metal  etc  special shows if we get enough tracks sent in to do it . But we’ll include all genres in our general playlist – you don’t have to be Lady Gaga – in fact we WON’T PLAY Lady Gaga!

They should initially send us 2 tracks  via our DROPBOX at

So please spread the word – and don’t let the major labels and acts get it all their own way. There’s load of great original  music out there waiting to be heard – we provide a platform for discovery !

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

HM covers from over the years

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
