MIXSHOW SUBMISSION PROCEDURES

Starting Friday, July 8th, we’re going to add ‘The Friday Night Jams’ from 10PM – 4AM on 102.3 FM The Beat. The Friday Night Jams will be guest DJS for the entire block of programming giving them an opportunity to be associated with the official, the real WBMX. We’ve had over 400 mixes already submitted and that way doesn’t work for us.

If we ‘greenlight’ you, we will send you drops to use in your mix featuring.

For your mixes, Armando Rivera and Lee Michaels voice the drops in your mixes, we send them to you “DRY”.

If you have a drop with your name in it, that’s fine but nothing else. No social network drops, website drops or anything else.
