About the Build the Scene Radio Family of Shows
Build the Scene RadioThe history of Build the Scene Radio is a testament to Bill’s unwavering dedication to the unsigned music scene in Western Pennsylvania. It all began in 1996 when Bill immersed himself in the local music scene, initially by creating websites for unsigned bands, thus laying the foundation for his extensive collection of local unsigned music. In 2004, Bill and Brian Shaffer spontaneously broadcasted what would become the inaugural episode of the Pennsylvania Rock Show, lending a helping hand to Indie Band Radio from Texarkana, TX. Originally a live streaming radio show, the Pennsylvania Rock Show continued in this format until 2010 when it took a brief hiatus, only to return stronger than ever in 2011. Throughout this time, Bill remained a steadfast supporter of the music scene, maintaining both his AK Music Scene website and the Pennsylvania Rock Show website. Episode 289 marked the triumphant return of the Pennsylvania Rock Show to the airwaves, now as a podcast featuring interviews with bands. On January 4, 2019, Bill debuted the pilot episode of his new podcast, 3 Questions and a Song and allowed him to expand to unsigned music world wide. Bill has made connections with out great supporters of Unsigned music including First Angel Media, XRP Radio & our shared show Friendly Fire, & DI Records. When the pandemic struck in 2019, Bill adapted quickly, learning how to live stream interviews and further expanding the show’s reach. Concurrently, his collaboration with Anthony Lamonde on SOS PGH 2020 and his partnership with Rocky to launch Music from the 412 showcased Bill’s ongoing commitment to promoting unsigned music. From web design to EPK design, band photography, podcasts, streaming radio, on-demand TV, and OTT TV, Bill’s multifaceted approach to supporting unsigned music has left an indelible mark on the scene. The Build the Scene Radio Show serves as a testament to nearly two decades of music scene experiences, celebrating the rich tapestry of talent that Bill has tirelessly championed since 1996.
