Friday Night Gerbil
Josh Withey and Adam Green
Gerbil presenters Josh and Adam

Adam Green and Josh Withey present the best local music mixed with a large helping of fun on the Friday Night Gerbil, 7-9pm on BBC Shropshire.

Featuring live sessions from some of the county's top talent, we'll also be encouraging you to enjoy more live music and support local artists.

You may not know the bands, but we guarantee you'll hear something new that you'll love!

If you're in a band, we also want to play your music on the show.

Since launching in October 2006 the Friday Night Gerbil has become an established part of the BBC Introducing family. We have unearthed some great artists and bands - and taken some of them to Glastonbury.

No matter what the genre, if it's good and it's local, we'll play it. The Gerbil loves nothing more than playing an eclectic mix that often takes in indie, acoustic, rock, dance, drum and bass, dubstep... and music that simply refuses to be pigeon-holed.

The weekend starts Friday at 7pm

We challenge you to listen to a show and not discover at least one new track that you love. We're as passionate about having a good time at the end of the week as playing great music - join us 7-9pm every Friday.

Send us your music

If you're making music that you're proud of, send it to us. You can submit music using the BBC Introducing Uploader. It's easy to register and provides a great way of distributing your music across the BBC.

You can also send CDs by post to:

Alternatively e-mail us your MP3s with a bit more information about you and your music, as well as contact details.

The Friday Night Gerbil has sent bands to big festivals like Glastonbury. We've also watched artists get signed up and move from playing small pubs to gigging at venues across the world.
