I have put together some information about The Vault Radio Show and the station that it airs on. First and foremost, The Vault is an actual radio program that also has a podcast and live stream. The show has been broadcasting continuously since 1996. My goal has always been to showcase the best in new non-commercial electronic music. Virtually all of the selections heard on my show are brand new promotional releases that have been provided to me. In addition to these new releases, I have also featured guest mixes from several dozen international acts. Additional information about what I do can be found on the station's website as well as the show's pages on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.
The show is broadcast on 88.1FM WESU from Wesleyan University each first, third, and fifth Wednesday of the month. WESU is a non-commercial public radio station. The station’s 6000 watt signal covers a roughly 3000 square mile (~8000 square kilometer) area directly between New York City and Boston. Middletown is just a 2 hour drive away from each of these major cities. The map on this page is a composite of the official coverage map from radio-locator.com along with a Google image of the surrounding area. I point this out because the northeast region of the United States is one of the most densely populated areas of the country. The last CENSUS shows that there are over 3.5 million people living in the area. It is impossible to know exactly how many people listen to WESU however the station has well over 1.1 million potential listeners based on the geographical area covered.
Nielsen prepared a general outlook on public radio listenership which included data from WESU. The report lists the demographics of public radio station listeners. Roughly 56% of men and 46% of women between the ages of 18 and 49 listen to public radio stations such as the on I am on. Over 50% of this demographic are college educated. Essentially, any promotional material sent to me will reach the ears of a savvy audience where noncommercial techno is underrepresented.
Please feel free to contact me if there is any additional information that I can provide. I appreciate your time and consideration and look forward to working with you to spread the word about this fantastic music.
PS - I would like to note that I do not share music with anyone unless I have been given written permission to do so. Your service of this radio program will never contribute to music piracy.
