Thirty years ago, Case Western Reserve University’s campus station WRUW 91.1 FM held the first of its free, all-day concerts in the courtyard of the Mather Building where the station is located. Since then, Studio-A-Rama, held in early September, has become a big outdoor party where seven or eight local and regional bands share the stage with a national headliner like Guided by Voices, A Place to Bury Strangers, and Mission of Burma. The headliner won’t be announced until later this summer but the station is now taking submissions from area bands who’d like to play. All types of music are welcome; the band must not have played the event in the past four years. Send a CD of at least three songs by WRUW-FM, Attention: Studio-A-Rama, 11220 Bellflower Road, Cleveland 44106 by July 15. Include band line-up with full names, and bio, band photos, website address and contact info.
