Famous Listeners

Some bands that have played the show have been offered and/or signed production agreements with local producers. Some bands have been finalist to play the 2006 Rolling Rock Town Fair, after being contacted by them and asked to supply a list of bands to check out. Some of the musicians on the show, have been used as session players. Other live guests have also hooked up with similar bands on the playlist to play shows together. On many occasions, major record labels and signed artists to local radio stations and syndicated radio DJs have been tuned into the show. (see the Famous Listener page and the About the Show page) It takes many small steps to travel long distances, if PARS is one of those small steps, then great.

SOS PGH Concert Series Interviews

SOS PGH Concert Series Interviews: The COVID-19 Pandemic has affected nearly every aspect of life and business. Across the country, thousands of local venues, promoters and bookers have experienced devastating losses of revenue and increased debt. Nearly 90% have suggested they run the risk of significant financial hardship or closure in the coming months. We have already lost countless venues in Pittsburgh since the beginning of the pandemic. While the CARES Act, PPP Loans and other stimulus programs have provided assistance to many aspects of our local community and businesses, these programs often overlooked the unique needs and attributes of our local music venues.

Build the Scene Radio

Our Build the Scene Radio plays unsigned music 24/7/365. We are based in Southwestern Pennsylvania, USA, and that is our main focus, BUT we do play music from all over the world.

Can’t say enough good things!

I learned about The PA Rock Show through a friend who had recently been interviewed on the show. I ended up being interviewed for my company, since I also help Pittsburgh Music. It was the first time I had ever been interviewed and Bill made it a great experience. I found out just how popular the podcasts were soon after my interview aired. Many artists reached out to me with messages saying they had heard me on the podcast. I now write for AK Music Scene and it’s such a great thing to be part of such an established company that gets the music scene to it’s fans!

One of the best things to happen to Pittsburgh local music!

I love the support the Pennsylvania Rock Show & Build the Scene gives to local artists. This is something that was really needed in the scene. Bands that didn’t know how to get airplay or interviews due to so many focusing on big names that tour nationally now have a home!!

I Love PA Rock Show

Me and Bill go further back than alot of strangers do, to say the least. Bill is a wonderful guy who loves the music scene as much as anybody else. I was interviewed by him recently on my company Filthy Media. It has a sub-par name but that goes with the personality. We market music, promote metal and hardcore bands, book events and review new albums. I love PA Rock Show and more is hopefully to come with them.
