Teasing PRX

Hi friend of PRX,

We’re no Angelina.

But we do know how to get some attention. Take a quick look at what every producer has to offer: grab sample audio for any piece on PRX; just listen to the free stream. A little. A lot.

Glance at the brief description for any program.

Heck, do some teasing of your own and share any program on PRX — click at the top of a piece page to have a player appear on Facebook or your own website, and share a link on Twitter.

We’ll even amp up your work: remind us of date references, news hooks, or anniversaries where your piece might attract the attention of a PD or station programmer looking for some ear candy.

Got your attention?

What to do?
