Question of the Day: Big Name, Small Room

by Corny O'Connell

We're focusing on live performances for WFUV's Fall member drive. Here's your chance to boast about having seen an artist perform in a small club before they hit the big time. Or perhaps you've seen a big name play a venue that's unusually intimate for them. Either way, let us know in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

By the way, WFUV marquee members get to attend our private concerts in intimate venues like Rockwood Music Hall, City Winery and Hill Country Live. Learn more here.

It's become routine for bands and record labels to turn to commercials to get exposure for their music. What are some of your favorite examples of that? Pitch them below and we'll spin a set after 9am.
