Nominate Online Bands for 6Music Airplay

This is really neat, I think, and given the popularity of the "unsigned MySpace bands" thread I started up last year, well worth highlighting in a new thread.

Tom Robinson has started a new radio show entitled "Introducing" on 6 Music.  What it involves is people mailing suggestions for unsigned bands for the man to play on his show, using weblinks to MP3s on MySpace or any other audio medium. Therefore, if you've managed to track down a fantastic new band who you think are undeservedly being sidelined by the A&R men and pluggers in the music industry, you can simply nominate them for airtime yourself. Simple and brilliant, I'd say, and it's surprising nobody has thought of this before.

I've already nominated The Henry Road and Three Chords and the Truth for some airplay, and if you've any particular ideas of your own about who deserves some exposure (I've loads more) you can go to the website here:

The only downside is that the show is broadcast from midnight - 2am on Saturday, but if enough people engage with this hopefully it will eventually get a better slot.
