About UsEvery week, Andrew Marston tears up the playlist and the airwaves are full of new music. There is only one qualification - it has to be from Herefordshire or Worcestershire.
As well as the superb quality of music the programme showcases, listeners are also given a full gig guide for the two counties, news from the musicians themselves, interviews with the movers and shakers within the industry, reviews from various events and festivals in the area plus live sessions on the show every week.
The programme was launched in June 2005 with huge interest - fast forward to today, where the show now, on average, receives around 250 tracks a week - all of which are listened to.
You can listen to all the latest music from across the two counties on BBC Hereford & Worcester every Saturday from 8pm.
What is BBC Introducing?
Upload Your Music
If you're in a band, a solo artist or a bedroom producer and you want to get the music you're making played on BBC radio, upload your tracks to BBC Introducing. If you enter a Herefordshire or Worcestershire postcode when you register, your songs will go straight into our inbox.
You'll be notified automatically when your tracks are listened to by someone at the BBC or if they're going to be broadcast. If we like what we hear, you might even bag yourself a session or a slot on the BBC Introducing festival stage.
All artists will be considered for airplay and live sessions, with the very best forwarded to our Introducing partners at BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 1Xtra, BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, BBC Asian Network and BBC Maida Vale. A selection will also be chosen for our annual stages at Nozstock, Wychwood, SnodFest, Droitwich, Worcester Music Festival, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds.
