I am the metal manager at my college radio station, and I run my own show. Playlists can be seen at http://wrmc.middlebury.edu/shows/563
I will eventually be making a website for the show, and syndicating podcasts of all the broadcasts (I already have a few recorded to mp3). I'll definitely be needing help with that as well. For now, I'm looking for poster designs... read on for more information...
If you are interested, please email me: apoc.metal(at)gmail

OK! Calling all talented graphic artists!!!
I have finally gotten a timeslot for my radio show!
Sundays 11:30pm-1am EST
Anyone who wants to listen can hear the webcast at http://wrmc.middlebury.edu/listen
or if you live in VT or upstate new york you can try the radio dial, 91.1 FM WRMC Middlebury.
On the website you can also playlists once the shows begin.
So I'm looking for a sweet-ass catchy design for a poster (or many posters!!) to help me advertise my show on campus. The radio station is pretty low-profile, with not many dedicated listeners... especially for shows like mine which play music that is not very popular in the US, especially not in my demographic, though I am finding more and more people who like it!
Anyways, the design needs to be funky and cool (or just sexy) and include the following info:
Show Name: Melting Point
Some indication that it is a radio show on WRMC 91.1FM
Show Time: Sundays 11:30pm - 1am
And somehow indicate that its a METAL show.
Some ideas: Quote cool/funny metal lyrics (Manowar, dream evil, maiden are always good choices)
Question-asking posters: ie. "SO YOU THINK YOU KNOW METAL?"
"For you weekly fill of METAL, tune in to MELTING POINT"
Ok, here are a few more bits of info I sent to ~e3rian who is going to make a few posters for me (THANKS!!) Visit his gallery and ~watch him!
It makes little difference whether you love metal, or don't know it well. All that matters is that I have some sick posters to put up around campus that will get more people to listen!
Black and white is a good idea, though I do have access to a color laser printer (which don't do great for photos, but good enough for posters) and color might be easier to make eye-catching? Though I'd have to print them out somewhat clandestinely... (using the geography department's printers hehehe).
Size-wize... I'll be printing them out on normal paper... 8 1/2 x 11 in, though most printers get upset if you don't give them a half inch margin on all sides.
Funny posters are great too cause they'll draw attention and stand out... maybe use some pics of black metal guys?
Anyone interested, please send me a note... and just post your ideas and send me the links!!! I'll give you feedback, or if you get it perfect on the first shot, I'll print them up and put them around campus! And feel free to put link to your deviantart site with a "designed-by" credit so you get exposure (if you want it hehe).
The show itself plays an eclectic mix of metal from across the spectrum, from Proggy Power-Metal to Proggy-Death Metal to Brutal Death and even a little Black Metal in there if its creative enough. I'm looking to kick off the show with the Dream Evil song "The Book of Heavy Metal". I will leave you with some lyrics:
I'd sign... a contract with the devil
I've tried... for so very long
I'd die... to become immortal
that's why I sing this song
Am I a wannabe? - have I no dignity?
Would give up all my life.. to be...
In the book of heavy metal... METAL!
In the book of heavy metal
I've signed - a contract with the devil
I'd like to become a star
I'd die - to become immortal
That's why I play the guitar
IN THE BOOK OF HEAVY METAL
