2016 Surround Sound Countdown


We are having a countdown this season to show off the top local music. The Sting is featuring the 2016 Surround Sound Countdown, a three hour special on December 29th, as an end-of-year countdown.

This is a chance for local bands to show off their music for listeners around the area. The best part: YOU, the listeners, get to decide which is the best by voting for your favorites.



Once we have a few entries, we'll start letting you vote.

The last day to vote will be December 27th.


Starting today, the Sting is accepting submissions. You have through December 16th to turn them in.

Please submit by mail to:

WBWC Studios, 275 Eastland Rd. Berea, OH 44017


email the mp3 to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it (subject: Surround Sound Countdown) by 12/16 to be considered for this incredible opportunity.

  • Band must be from Northeast Ohio
  • Song should be from 2016
  • Must fit an "alternative" format
  • Band must be an original piece, no covers allowed
  • Songs must be kept CLEAN
  • Keep song between 2 and 5 minutes, include the name of the song, a description of the group, and what label they’re apart of (if applicable).
  • Band can also record a voice track intro (optional but recommended)
  • A voice track intro will be no more than 15 seconds and consist of a greeting, introducing the track and a quick blurb about the song.
