Boy George calls for more unsigned acts to be played on the radio

Taking a gentle swipe at the radio industry, Boy George has tweeted that radio DJs should play more unsigned acts.

In the tweet, he encouraged the DJs to “break free” and to start championing new acts, particularly those who are not signed to record labels.

There are a lot of new releases every week, but most of them never make it to air. George, who knows the music industry very well, says it’s not only the “pretend alternative (secretly) corporate bands” that should get exposure.

Although there is an outlet for unsigned artists to be played on some radio stations, getting their music heard can be very difficult unless they get signed to an established record label.

George says that he’s “sick of hearing the same sounds over and over” and he added: “Plant nothing new, nothing new grows!”

    He is so spot on. Radio 1 are quite good for new music and BBC Introuducing is a great show to play new stuff but would be nice if Global stations could play some new unheard music but I suppose it is not their formula that they think should be played.
