Uncle Waldo Creative Page

Campground Pirate Radio has dedicated itself to bringing back the sound and feel of 1970′s FM radio.

Hosted by your intrepid DJ (or PJ… Pod Jockey), Uncle Waldo, and broadcasting from his gun turret high atop the Rancho del Waldo compound, he’ll be bringing you a weekly dose of 1970′s style radio.

It doesn’t mean we’ll be sticking to primarily 1970′s music… you’ll hear all kinds of stuff from 1950 to today, news and whatever. We’ll be playing the long tracks with no commercial interruptions. And, it ain’t for the squemish… so if a little reality and cussin’ turns you off… well, you’ve been warned.

We want you to become part of it. Feel free to send us DJ Drops, Promos, Shout Outs,  or your original music if you’d like to hear it on Campground Pirate Radio. As Uncle Waldo says on the show, “If I like it, I’ll play it!”

This is your show so we’d love your input, suggestions and your creativity to help make Campground Pirate Radio better.

What We're Looking For

Weekly Corespondents
Can you provide news with a certain bent to it? Make it funny and informative? And do it on a regular basis? You can use this to also promote your own show or blog. Tips: concentrate on 1 or 2 items per episode and keep it around 2-4 minutes in length. If you can do the entire piece, great! If not, then just the voice over is fine. We can add a jingle and bedding to the piece.

DJ Drops
Anything funny or over the top is always welcome. Please keep it under 15 seconds.

Same as above, funny and/or over the top is always welcome. Please keep it under 15 seconds.

Self-promos that either introduce Uncle Waldo or introduce the show are fine. If you’ve got your own blog or podcast, feel free to plug it as well. For example, “This is Joe Blowe with the Joe Blowe Show and you’re listening to Campground Pirate Radio!” (Okay, that was lame. I’m sure you can do a helluva lot better.)

Original Music
Plug your band! Plug your music! Listen, we’re not going to play everything that’s sent to us (well, cuz some of it sucks), but, if it’s any good, we’ll let you know what show it will appear on. Send us your best stuff… don’t just inundate us with everything you’ve got. Oh, and of course, by submitting the music to us you grant CampgroundPirateRadio.com the right to replay your music at our discretion.

Tips for Submitting Your Music
Don’t suck! We’ll play damn near any genre but the music’s gotta be good.

Listen to the show! You'd be amazed at what people will send in. Complete ignorance of any station's format is the best way to get your music ignored... not just here, but in general.

MP3, WAV or AIF only, please!

Submit Your Sound Files to (under 25mb please!):

You ain't gettin' paid, but I can provide exposure for your music or broadcasted files for your voice over demos.
