Indie Music Room Radio Show
Hosted by Independent Recording Artist, Heather Kelly
My name is Heather Kelly and I couldn't be more excited to serve as host of the Indie Music Room. This new program is my opportunity to create a showcase for artists to share their original songs, explain the thoughts behind their creations, and play the most recent recordings a majority of the audience has not yet heard! Being an artist myself for nearly 20 years, I know what goes on behind the scenes to create an album of original music – I have released four of my own.
I believe indie musicians are underrated, underpaid and lead difficult careers trying to get heard and appreciated. Indie artists easily can be needles in the commercial haystack, but the Indie Music Room will give artists an outlet to connect with more listeners, hopefully open some doors, and FINALLY get their music heard!
The show has a fun atmosphere, with interviews being recorded at the renowned Junior’s Motel Recording Studio.
Be sure to subscribe to the Indie Music Room on our Fort Dodge Radio YouTube Channel and you'll be notified when each new show is released.
The Indie Music Room Podcast is also available on your favorite podcast directory. We have a few of our favorite podcast directories listed below including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, TuneIn, and iHeart Radio.

Guidelines for Making a Guest Submission:
1) Please submit three original songs as well as a short biography, website links, and any videos that correspond with your submitted songs. This helps us to get to know you better and it will be used in producing the show.
2) Please include any promo pics and anything else you may find that may help us tell your story. We ask that your music files (MP3’s preferred) to be included with your submission. Because of music royalty considerations, we can only use your original music, and your submission gives us permission to include your music on the Indie Music Room podcast, radio show, and YouTube channel. No covers will be accepted.
3) We ask that you promote your appearance on the Indie Music Room by sharing your interview on your artist/band website and with all your social media followers prior to and during your monthly spotlight. Please include how you will help us cross-promote your appearance on the Indie Music Room.
If you would like to be considered as a guest on the Indie Music Room, drop me a note at [email protected].
We also recommend the Audible Farm Podcast, another locally produced music podcast hosted by Peter Stockdale.
