Open to all high school students, “My Band Is Better Than Your Band” aims to help any band, hip hop artist, singer/songwriter etc, to make that first tiny step in the journey towards critical acclaim, fame, fortune, and all the pleasures that come with being a musician!

Up for grabs is a recording session in the Radio One production studio to have the winning song recorded, mixed, and mastered in a professional manner to create a recording that is of broadcast standard. The winner will also get a professional bio written, their song play-listed on Radio One, as well as being sent out to fellow b-net stations 95bfm, Radio Active, rdu, Control, and The Generator!
