How It Works:
Every Sunday from January 7 to March 25, we will be podcasting the music of 2 to 3 bands. The Long Island Podcast Network web site will be the source of the podcast. On the site each band will be able to get votes for their music for a period of two weeks after their music is podcasted. People will vote and as voters, they will need to register with a valid email address. Bands will be able to get votes for two weeks after their song is podcasted. On Sunday March 25, 2007, after the last podcast, voting will automatically open back up for all bands for 2 more weeks to acquire votes. So, in essence, every band will be able to get votes for 4 weeks.
On Sunday, April 8, 2007, we will tally the votes. The five bands with the highest number of votes will compete live at the Livin' Room Lounge in Glen Cove. The winner will win the grand prize as mentioned above.
To enter the Battle of the Band Podcast Competition, there is a $50 application fee per band per song. As the Long Island Podcast Network has over 10,000 listeners from Nassau and Suffolk counties, your music will also gain great exposure.
