Hey I'm hosting a punk show on the campus radio station at my university, just wondering if you guys have any tips or suggestions on what music to play and what kinds of things I should do on it. Thanks

Step 1) Who is your demographic
Step 2) What do they want to hear
I want to get people into the genre rather than satisfying the 10 people who listen to hardcore on campus. they probably want to hear pop punk stuff but more mature and developed im guessing. like dear landlord? etc

When I was in college a lot of my friends did radio shows. Number one thing they all shared was exposing new local bands. That's the best way to go.
yeah good idea, im thinking to start with The Murderburgers because they're local.

Don't play singles. Many people may only know a band by their singles, so exposing your audience to B-sides, bonus tracks, and non-singles would be a good idea.
thanks, good idea, will do!

I've always thought it would be rad to host punk radio. Local bands is the way to go, and getting -short- interviews of bands that have some momentum in campus or in your community. They'll tell people to listen to them on your radio station, cross-advertising. play as wide a variety of punk as you can, top 10 stuff, deep cuts, thrash to scream... everybody knows the genre is huge, use it to your advantage.

annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd get a velvety smooth voice.
such a good idea, i will try this as well
