The CROCK Awards

The CROCK Awards exist to recognize the significant influencers in the worlds of classic and Christian rock--those movers and shakers who keep rock-n-roll alive or who have made rock-n-roll what it is today.  These awards are given on an "as-deserved" basis.  Although we receive nominations on a rolling basis year round, we only make an award when our judges are so moved that any other course of action would be illogical, unconscionable, or half-witted.  

Nominees may be solo artists or bands, but they must fit into the rock genre and represent the values of WLVA-DB, The CROCK.  If you'd like to nominate someone for an award, email the following information to info@thecrockradio.com:

                               1. Artist's or band's name

                               2. Why you are nominating the artist or band

                               3. Artist's or band's website address

                               4. Links to sample music and/or music videos

                               5. What level of award you recommend

The CROCK Award can be given at one of three levels:  The Green, Blue, or Golden CROCK Award.  Descriptions and criteria for each award is listed below.

We hope The CROCK Awards promote excellence in rock-n-roll and keep this important genre of music alive for generations to come!
