Over the years, WRUW FM 91.1
’s all-day Studio-A-Rama music festival has featured terrific headlining acts such as the Man or Astroman, Bleached, Tacocat, A Place To Bury Strangers, the Black Angels, Mission of Burma, Guided By Voices and the New Bomb Turks.
WRUW broadcasts the festival, its signature event, in its entirety on its FM home (91.1 on the old-fashioned radio dial) and via its website.
The station has just announced it has started taking submissions from local and regional bands who wish to play this year’s event. The deadline to submit is July 21. Concert organizers will choose seven to nine bands to play alongside headliner Sweet Spirit and Ohio-based indie rock acts New Bomb Turks and This Moment in Black History.
Bands interested in playing the event can submit by sending their submissions to WRUW-FM, Attention: Studio-A-Rama, 11220 Bellflower Road, Cleveland OH 44106. Electronic submissions can be emailed to [email protected]
Submissions should include at least three songs, band line-up and bio, a band photo, website address and contact information.
To mark WRUW’s 50th anniversary as a radio station, this year’s event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 7, at MOCA Cleveland during Homecoming Weekend. MOCA will also celebrate its fifth anniversary in its current location.
In recognition of the two anniversaries, MOCA will feature free admission throughout the day.
