Television Show To Air Videos of Unsigned Bands

October 2, 2006 Washington, DC- America's Hot Musician, the American Idol-like TV show featuring instrumental musicians, is reserving commercial time for bands to promote thier videos, cd's and bookings. The show, which will air 12 weekly half hour episodes on Comcast beginning January 8, 2007, is in its first season.

"There are very limited resources for unknown bands to present their visual image to a national audience", says executive producer Susan Veres. "We feel this outlet is a needed resource to encourage independent bands to stick with it".The show also encourages artists to promote CD's and concert bookings via this commercial time.

This service is not free and bands must pay for the commercial time but because the producing agency American Youth Symphony is a non-profit organization, the time is offered at a substantially reduced rate.
