Every week on 98.9 WMMO’s Sunday Morning Acoustic, we feature a great artist with roots in Central Florida.
If you’re a great, local artist who wants to get played on Sunday Morning Acoustic, email me at email@example.com.
Send a link to preview the song file, rather than an mp3, if you can. mp3 files are really large and get stuck in my mailbox.
Your submission should be rock-based and original.
We will need good quality audio for airplay and cannot accept YouTube files or something that was recorded on a cell phone.
