CBS RADIO Alternative KROQ/LOS ANGELES announces "KROQ LOCALS ONLY," will expand to two hours and move from 9p to 10p-mid on SUNDAY nights. KROQ middayer KAT CORBETT has hosted the show since its inception in SEPTEMBER 2006.
“My favorite memories from a decade of putting together LOCALS ONLY all revolve around watching bands break out of the show into regular rotation on KROQ,” said CORBETT.
“Bands like SILVERSUN PICKUPS, FITZ AND THE TANTRUMS, GROUPLOVE, YOUNG THE GIANT, AWOLNATION, THE DIRTY HEADS, COLD WAR KIDS, BEST COAST, ROBERT DELONG, SAINT MOTEL, CAPITAL CITIES, and many more have all done their time in LOCALS ONLY and now those bands play KROQ WEENIE ROAST, ACOUSTIC CHRISTMAS, COACHELLA and other world class festivals. The process of breaking a band is a long one, but through airplay on KROQ and presenting shows in L.A. and O.C. we’ve shown we can find the next great band.”
