Check One…Two with Mr. Shovel

SUNDAYS 8PM – 9PM


Mr. Shovel (Mark Sovel) has called Los Angeles home for over 25 years and was born and raised in Detroit where he began his radio career at the legendary rocker WABX.

He is the host of the local music show “Check One…Two’ as well as producer and side-kick of Jonesy’s Jukebox. (In fact the nickname “Mr. Shovel” came from the Sex Pistol, who continually mispronounced Sovel’s real name). Both programs originally aired on L.A.’s Indie 103.1.

Shovel established himself as an influential taste-maker with his work as the founding Music Director of the much celebrated radio station, giving the first commercial airplay to artists such as Arcade Fire, Black Keys, My Morning Jacket, MGMT, Arctic Monkeys and more.

During that time he also hosted the popular local music show “Check One…Two” and is credited with putting many local L.A. bands on the map, including Silversun Pickups, Cold War Kids, Warpaint, The Airborne Toxic Event, Everest, She Wants Revenge, and more. He now brings “Check One…Two” and more local music to the airwaves of 95.5 KLOS.

If you want to submit your music, don’t wait for permission, just send a CD to:

Check One…Two

8965 Lindblade Street
Culver City, CA 90232

All submissions will be reviewed, though we can’t guarantee airplay.

If we love it, and it fits the show we’ll play it. That simple (Unless it has swear words in it!) No need for fancy promo folders and press kits. Just give us your web site addresses and we’ll check it out.

We ask that you do not email audio files unless requested to, in order to not fill up our inbox. Also, please understand that we aren’t able to respond to all follow up inquiries or tell you “what we think.” If we don’t play it, that doesn’t means you suck, it just means that we haven’t been able to hear your brilliance yet. Keep trying, and keep rocking. Believe in yourself. We need you!

Thanks – Mr. Shovel
