Transistor Radio is the webcast of Transistor Chicago. Each month tune in to hear programs featuring indie & archival rock, Americana, electronica, house, disco, funk and soul, tracks from our live performance archive, original sound pieces specially made for Transistor Radio, interview and discussion programs, and more. 

Our sponsorship opportunities include these features:

We record your advertisement in our basement studio (or at your place of business) free of cost, or you provide us ad copy and we read it on our shows (of which the Coffee Studio and Scout ads below are examples).  It’s also possible, of course, to update your commercial as details change and promotions come along (a store sale or an event, for example). With the audio players below, you can hear examples of recorded commercials.

We feature the ad in our webcast programs for $10 a month. Longer ads (those 45 to 75 seconds in length) are $12 a month.  

As part of that monthly fee, we feature ad copy and the recorded ad on our All About page, under the banner "Our Sponsors,” and the Our Sponsors page.   (See screenshot below.) It is also included on the audio page for the month; here is the page for February 2019. We will also feature you in our Instagram feed. (See screenshot below.)

We require no long-term commitments or contracts.  Whether you'd like to advertise one time or indefinitely, we are happy to work with you!
