Attention Michigan Rock and Metal Bands: Get Your Song On the Radio Here!

Band of the year

Hey, you’re in a local band. You want new people to hear your music, obviously. Well our local show —  the Flint Town Throwdown — can help you make that happen. Every Monday at 10p, we play 5 songs from Michigan rock bands — one of which could be yours. Find out how here.

To get your song considered for airplay on the Banana’s weekly local show, email your track to or use the form below.

The Flint Town Throwdown works like this:

  • Each Monday we put four songs from Michigan (and sometimes Windsor) bands in an online battle where fans can vote (once per household every 24 hours) for their favorite tune.
  • We air all of the week’s songs (and the previous week’s winning song) on Banana 101.5 at 10p for the Flint Town Throwdown.
  • The winner of each week’s online battle will have their song played the following week at 10p Monday – Friday on the Banana.
  • If you lose, every band gets another week to win (so at bare minimum, your song gets played two weeks in a row on Monday)

We try to do our best to help promote your band on the show, including album news, upcoming gig promotion, etc. Just so you know, we will not play your song if it has a bunch of unedited F-bombs in it or if it sounds like it was recorded in a basement. Also, please have a picture with all current members of the band available on your Facebook page — you should have one of those anyway if you’re a serious band.
