Throughout the years, the Tampa Bay music scene had been highly promoted on the airwaves. During the late 1980's - mid 1990's, Tampa Bay radio stations set aside pockets of precious air time in order to showcase local talent in the form of an hour or so of playing nothing but songs from local artists. These local stations would also broadcast in-studio interviews and performances with local artists & bands as well. WXTB 98ROCK had their "Tampa Bay Rocks" show hosted by Jeff Zinda from 9:00pm - Midnight on Sunday nights. WMNF 88.5 FM had their "Local Music Show" hosted by Ron Boyko on Thursday nights from 11:00pm - Midnight. 95ynf also did their part in promoting the local music scene as well, airing the "95ynf Radio Clash" every Sunday night from 9:00pm - 2:00am. Hosted by Charlie Logan, the "95ynf Radio Clash" broadcasted local bands performing live from Morrisound Recording Studios in Tampa.
