Frequently asked questions
How do I submit my music ?
The best way to submit music is by contacting the individual radio hosts if there is a specific show you think might be suitable for your release, our radio hosts are responsible for their own playlists. A full list of shows on our network can be found on our Radio Show Schedule page, just scroll to the bottom of the page.
