Home Turf Radio is designed to promote local Hip-Hop and R&B music in the Bay Area/Northern California. We are accepting music for Home Turf Radio from all artists in the Bay Area/Northern California. Once music is posted to the Home Turf page on 106kmel.com, website visitors will have the ability to listen and vote for their favorite song. Voting is limited to one time per day per computer. The song with the most votes will be played on Home turf Radio!

All music must be submitted to hometurf@gmail.com. Artists must include their artist name, song title, copy of their song in mp3 format & twitter username. All music submitted must be edited for explicit content or it will be rejected.

The KMEL Staff will review all songs before posting. If music submitted has not been edited for explicit content, or is not local to the Bay Area or Nor Cal, it will be rejected. In addition, KMEL reserves the right to reject any music, for any reason, at any time. Home Turf  Radio will feature up to 3 songs at one time, and only 1 song per artist. Songs that receive the least amount of votes will eventually be removed from The Home Turf page. If an artist’s song is dropped, the artist will then be able to submit a new song for consideration.

Voting rounds begin every Tuesday @ 12pm and end on Sunday @ 11:59pm! The #1 top song, as determined by votes each week, will be featured on Home Turf  Radio, the following Friday at 11:00pm on 106.1 KMEL.
