Check out my station - 104.5 SNX/Grand Rapids. We have 20 hrs of mix show programming each week. We have a huge number of talented DJ's our area that we tap into. We have seven local residents (three spin pop/hip hop on Fri/Sat nights, the other four residents spin on our now 7 year old all EDM mix show called CLUB 104 Five on Sundays 9p-1a) The fourth hour of CLUB 104 Five is our "guest DJ" hour where we spotlight a different LOCAL EDM DJ each week. Since 2010, we've had 40 different LOCAL EDM DJ's on a rotation spinning dub-step, trap, minimal, industrial, gay house, even have a guy who DJ'd back in the day, gave it up when he had kids, now they are grown, he's 49-50 years old now but can still spin classic freestyle like no other)
Our weekly mix shows consistently score in the 20-30 share range 18-34. CLUB 104 Five (the EDM show) recently hit a 41 share.
We even do marathon mix show weekends (Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years) which is usually 40-50 hrs of mix shows over a three day weekend. All mixed by LOCAL talent with once exception being DJ Grooves. His mix is syndicated to about 20 stations and is LIGHT YEARS better than all the watered down, too overly "safe" crap out there. AND since Grooves was the only DJ who WASN'T local, over the years we've brought him in town to spin a few club gigs a year.
One of our annual marathon weekends is called the Spring Break DJ Takeover (we turn the station over to the local mixers) and it happens to be this weekend. We'll be in the mix Fri 5p-Sat 5a, Sat 3p-Sun 5a and Sun 3p-Mon 4a. DJ Schedule is here: http://www.1045snx.com/pages/snxmixers.html?article=10798393
Take a listen, lemme know what you think. I think you'll be surprised.
Have a great weekend.
