We are always looking for ways to interact with our listeners and we know that many of you have big opinions when it comes to music! Therefore, we are launching a Classic Album Blog Contest in two different categories: Modern Classic and Forgotten Classic.
We are asking budding music writers to submit a 800-1000 word blog on one of their favourite Modern Classics (a record released from 2000 and onwards) or their favourite Forgotten Classic (an album that doesn’t traditionally make it onto Top Album lists). The piece needs to tell the story of the album and explain why it is a classic and has a legacy.
The winning pieces will be published on our Classic Album Sundays website and the winners will receive a pair of Klipsch Reference R6 In- Ear Headphones. The piece must be submitted by 30th September at firstname.lastname@example.org.
