Wanted: Station IDs & Promos

Record a promo!

CALL 848-CAT-FAT9 AKA 848-228-3289 ANYTIME & RECORD YOUR MESSAGES.

OR

RECORD A MP3 OR WAV FILE & SEND TO 'ATTENTION SWEDE' AT THE STATION'S EMAIL.
(If you're at this point you know what it is. If not? Use the contact form).


Station ID's (station identifications): The standard "This is ____ from ____ and you're listening to FatCat Radio". Frankly I find those boring and unoriginal. Use some creativity and do something a bit different. Something that shows some personality. (I REALLY like those). See examples below.

Song Intros: Pick a song and introduce it. Example - This is Angus Young of AC/DC. This next song is all about life on the road and it's called 'Highway To Hell'.

At a loss? You can never go wrong with a simple "Click on the Cat". If you want to record multiple spots I suggest calling the FatCat Phone (848-CAT-FAT9) & recording one long message. Just leave a gap in between. I'll clean 'em up & ready 'em for broadcast.

BANDS: Make sure you mention your website. LISTENERS: Be sure to give your location. Try to keep all promos less than 30 seconds. Remember...bands that provide station ids and song intros tend to get more airplay. THANKS IN ADVANCE EVERYONE!!!
