Get Ready to ROCK! Radio - Smartphone

How can we help?

What can we offer artists and labels in terms of promotion?

  • We can jointly promote via our associated website - one of the web's main rock destinations for over 250,000 unique users each month.  Gig and album reviews are consistently high in Google for maximum visibility.

  • Reviews take - on average - a few minutes to get to the top of Google after publication - great visibility, and especially useful for an early tour review...

  • The radio station "tweets" the playlist in real time and also links directly to Last.FM - we brand each tweet with a genre hashtag.  Music lovers are more likely to find your music. 

  • Selected shows are available via Mixcloud, another way of getting your music out there via our interview features/specials.

  • Our sponsored label and artist showcases highlight your product via radio, website and in iTunes.

  • Our "In Session" series is a further vehicle to show an artist's depth in the context of an acoustic or live performance.

Get Ready to ROCK! is independent and has built an enviable reputation for informed, enthusiastic, eclectic and comprehensive coverage since 2002.  We're not just metal, we're not just hard rock, we also support prog, blues and back catalogue as much as the contemporary.

If you can't listen live...listen again!

You can catch up on various show highlights and interview/features via our Mixcloud page.  It's also a great way of sampling our output.

For artists and labels, our Mixcloud media is another way of getting your music "out there".  In respect of interview specials our presenters examine in some depth an artist's career and each sequence is sprinkled with carefully selected tracks that provide a fair and sometimes rare view of back catalogue.

For the listener this is a great way of catching up with an artist's output and discovering new material thereby informing future purchases.

Our Mixcloud material can easily be shared in social media or embedded in artist/label websites.

For our US listeners we also supply an alternative to the Mixcloud platform where possible, due to copyright restrictions in the USA.
