What's the catch if it's free?

There is no catch. As an independent ambient musician myself, I know first-hand the challenge of getting one's music out there and being heard. Both The Stolace Relay Station radio show and the Ambient Discourses podcast are my act of service to the larger community of ambient, neoclassical, and new age musicians — with the goal of getting more listeners in front of their music. If there's one thing I'd hope, is that someday someone would do the same for me and the music I create. My only ask in exchange is two-fold:

  1. Promote the show on your socials and your website. I've made this easier for you by including promotional graphics, audio, and video that you can further customize to your needs to promote the program while keeping you compliant with the Stolace brand.

  2. Run the Stolace-branded ads to help generate more awareness of and interest in the program, in some of the Stolace music releases, and other shows, programs, or services that we offer listeners and musicians alike. I believe they call that bartering in the 'biz'. 🤓

Frequently asked questions

What is the episode release schedule?
Episodes are released weekly with no holiday breaks in programming. I do take one month off at the end of the season to prepare for the new season of episodes to further refine and improve the programming. You are free to play older episodes during the month of October when there is no new programming.

Where can I find cue sheets for each episode?
Cue sheets are located in a folder with all of the digital assets for each episode. Look for a folder labeled "cue sheets" where you will find a PDF that contains the cue sheet. Each cue sheet contains the following information:

  • Original air date and episode number
  • Episode description that you can use for posts on your website or social media
  • A link to the live broadcast link (or archive if after the broadcast date) on YouTube
  • The featured artists and links to their Bandcamp page or their website
  • Ad break times (the minutes and seconds into the program when the breaks occur)
  • The names and song titles of next week's featured artists
  • A detailed cue sheet including segment lengths, start and stop times of audio clips and music, song titles, artist names, album titles, and promo/break timing.
  • Written transcripts of the spoken portions of this program, including music references with the artist, album, and song title included.

Where do I find archived cue sheets from older episodes?
You can email your request. Please include the episode number to ensure a speedy turnaround [you can hear the episode number at the beginning of the program: "Transmission sequence: __ . __"]. If you cannot provide the episode number, it will take longer to process your request.
