Radio Stations and Sites Accepting Music Submissions

Last Updated 10.12.2021

I’ve done things to try to help promote independent musicians and groups. I can’t say things have blossomed (but the artists themselves weren’t going full-time with their tunes). I’m on record with one experience that’s backfired (and I hold to it –Radio Airplay is an ego massage at best). In all cases, it’s led me to do research on a more traditional promotional avenue: radio.

I’m on record here on Johnny Fonts singing praises/encouraging on one radio streaming site. There are a hell of a lot more out there, more than what I’ve listed.

If you are an independent musician looking to promote content besides pushing it on Spotify,  Apple Music, Amazon Music, Google Play Music, Deezer, or other subscriber-based pay-streaming services, radio is one of them. “Radio” has changed (thus quotes) in that streaming stations – internet-based sites who aren’t part of the aforementioned music services – are out there as places for potential music promotion. There are also traditional terrestrial stations that take submissions.

The application process varies from site to site and it’s important to have your data – bio, photos, album art, social media information, and music of course – ready to share.  The “notes” section under station listings will tell you this and station facts as well as my own experience with some of these sites.

It’s also worth noting college stations and many traditional, local community stations will take submissions but it requires them to be vinyl or CD-based and not digital files. Most stations listed accept digital submissions, but not all.

Updates

06.27.2020 Just curious…

Which section of ardio and streaming stations do you take the most interest in?

07.30.20: The “General” section has been divided up, it is tentative still, so no Quick Jump menu elements. I’s be happy for some feedback/input on

08.03.2020. In the “General” station sites division, it’s worth noting I removed notes attached to sites listed in the “At-Cost” section. My notes weren’t favorable and I personally didn’t use these stations. One might say I should remove them entirely if I’m not in favor but I’m keeping them specifically for musicians who do favor the option.

It’s also relevant to note while I moved Miami Underground from Regional to At-Cost, I did not move KGUP FM Emerge. To pay to submit in the Entertainment Capital of the World (locals only) is different from pay-we’ll-play, high-cost stuff of the listed sites.

09.17.2020: Pandora is being removed from General simply because Indie bands getting on the network has simplified so much.

I’d also like to note I did a write-up on Radio.com which provides a regional station option… I did not provide a listing of their stations, though.
09.24.2020: Orlando actually does have a station accepting music submissions.

11.2020: I don’t post many updates, do I? My focus fi4stly is to update the station listing, secondly, it’s to promote this post on social media. I don’t know if anyone looks for updates or not. At any rate, a few notes:

— WYEP in Pittsburgh seems to have dropped music submissions? I’m keeping an eye on this and may change or remove the station from Reginal.
— San Antonio College remover that music submission form earlier this tear and I have removed the station recently. Texas’ college station listing is now blank…for now.
–I’m overdue to add a number of Canadian college/community stations. I’m also curious to know if people using the station listing are having success submitting to any f the currently listed Canadian college/community stations?
–There arr a total of 242 listings with more on the way.

12.03.20 Nwq Genre-Specigic category added. Chill / Easy Listening.
12.16.20: Three stations are, and have not been operational. RadioEZ, Starnurst99, and DownHome Radio have functioning sites but are not broadcasting. You may want to skip them for the time being.

01.26.2021 I am experirencing some personal issues that are limiting my updates. I may still make updates, but without notes.

On the other hand – sites have been removed because they stopped working or stopped taking submissions. Some no-worky sites are listed, but not many.

.0225.21: There is an increasing number of submission pages no longer working. I am not jumping to fix them as some resumes working after some time. My apologies for issues this may cause.

03.10.21: I updated Chill Lounge Florida’s listing after speaking with them. It’s minor but relevant info. They’re listed in Regional – Southeast

I’m also looking to update thd phooto tied to this article.
03.15.24 Re-arranged the Southeast regional section and added the first new station listing within it.I need to re-arranfe more in Regional, but that’s a chore I’d rather avoid.
06.17.21:I have a survey/oikk question on Rwutter —

https://twitter.com/i/timeline

.

05.05.21 I’m trying a layout change and thiat may lead to visual issues.

06.02.21: Regarding the contents menu and colleges: Only states/provinces with five or more school-station listings will have menu listings. More are coming.
06.14.21: I’m on Twitter, it’s where I more often post day-to-day updates. Also, dor my fellow Redditors: Please send private messages, not chat requests.

07.10.21: The College radio/Music Submission Quest

09.30.2021: Some listed stations ceased with submissions. I’m not intentionally leaving then. If you cross a listing that has “Xubmissions Page” listed but no link, that is a no-more-submissions station that hasn’t been removed.

General

Major Networks

  • Broadcast Network For Independent Artists (BN4IA)
    Web Site || Submission page
    Note: This is major and I confess I have not submitted to the network before to explore if there are costs. They do say ’no royalties” to those who gain airplay… It the potential for exposure that makes this a major and must promotional exploration.
    The network has three terrestrial (standard, normal radio) stations in London, New York, and Las Vegas. They have a wide number of affiliate stations spanning the globe and variations of their network available through online streaming.
    I’d also like to note the submission process changed for the network; registration is part of the process. I have not reviewed it…
  • CBC Music
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: I’m a little uncomfortable posting this one as their method seems to key in on programming — note a program with submissions. ^here is even a second submissions pate about program submissions. It’s a major Canadian broadcast company, though, so it’s worth exploring.
  • BBC Music Introducing
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: Registration required, and I don’t know the depth of the process or if they have preferences to musicians of the United Kingdom and Europe but…dude! It’s the bloody BBC!
    Wdit 06.09.20 It was pointedhttp://www.wxpressfm.com out in comments that you have to be a UK 43sident to get on BBC Music. Thank you, JP, for pointing this out. I’ve moved the listing as a result.
  • SomaFM
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: They’ll take download codes from Bandcamp or download links from the common services like Deopbox, Google Deive, etc. They also want high nitrate MP3 files and not alternative file types.
  • SiriusXM Canada
    Web Site|| Submissions Page
    Notes:
  • Fab Radio International
    Web Sire || Submissions Page
    Notes: This UK-based station is a broader radio service than it appears, with multiple channels that host multiple genres, as well as the online stream.
    The fon6rasting element in the depth of Fab Radio is the means with which you – yes, you – can submit music. High Quality (production, mixing) is pushed on the submissions page ane a file-size limit of 12 Megabytes.
  • BigTime Radio
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: They boast a very wide public reach. I did not go as thoroughly through the music submission process. It starts at a registration/memmembe4ssip sign-up, If I take a stab, notes will be updated.
  • BWH Group Music
    Web Site || Submissions Page*
    Notes: Powerful PR opportunity BUT
    I was actually researching submissions to Indie Spoonful and they heralded BWH Music Group on their submissions page without giving clear instructions on how to submit. Ultimately, contact seems to be done via email (i t w a s a n a w k w a r d p r e s e n t a t i o n) but the format of the page made me move on without as much research.
    All that said, this is a big-shit company with several broadcast arms of net-based and terrestrial broadcasts. This is ultimately PR, folks. It’s business.
    I’m not very comfortable posting a PR page as a “submissions” page, I much prefer individual stations with streams.
  • The Shift
    Web Site || Submission page
    Note:  This isn’t just music but also video submissions. The Shift TV promotes music videos submitted by artists. If memory serves correctly, you have to sign up for an account. Not a big deal, but time-consuming.
  • the detour radio network
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: Affiliated with the Pacifica Radio Network, the detour is Free form – any and all genres.
  • Indie Radio Network
    Web Site || Submission page

  • Constant Contact
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes:

Internet Radio Stations

  • Lonely Oak Radio
    Web Site || Submission page
    Note: I’ve written at length to herald Lonely Oak Radio before. In essence though, if you’re just starting out with going toward radio/streaming options as an independent musician, this is where to start.  Also keep in mind that they sort of introduce you to the fact Twitter accounts can lead to numerous, automated messages aimed at major accounts (from stations your music is airing on in this case).
    04.19.202 Update: It’s important to note that while I’ve heard a wide variety of music on the station, hip-hop and R&B are not among them. The station does not accept those genres.
  • M3 Radio
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: “New Music” — less than a year old – “24/7, 365”. Submissions are via email and a download link. Seeing Iggy Pop was atop their weekly charts at the time of this post, it shows you are in stiff competition for airplay,.
    The charts of M3 Radio show they play a multitude of genres. They highlight the adds (new airplay) in Heavy, Electric, World, Hip-Hop, and Jazz. That doesn’t mean they don’t accept submissions (or add artists) in other listed genres though.
  • Respect the Underground Worldwide Radio
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: Form submission. This site is bigger than I know. I looked at genres listed on the submission form; when “Big Band” is listed along with many variations of common indie music, you know a station is covering a lot of stuff. You must be a member of the site to submit content, you also must be 18 or older.
  • The BIRN
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: Origionally listed as a Regional station, while owned and controlled by a college, Berklee Internet Radio Network is four channels and devoted to music… Not to city or campus life.
    The station accepts physical and email submissions – with music download links and info included.
  • Catorweb Radio
    Web Site || Submission page
    Notes: Mixing submitted artists and traditional major musicians. I’ve had a habit of tuning into their online stream and catching Stevie Ray Vaughn’s songs more often than indie acts. Blame that on when I was listening.
  • Indie Radio FM
    Web Site || Submission page
    Note:
  • Indie Scene
    Web Site || Submission page
    Note:
  • Indie Air Radio
    Web Site || Submission page
    Note:
  • Hot Wax Radio
    Web Site || Submission page
    Note: They say their focus is Rock and music quality and fit is what leads to airplay.
  • Lucid Vibe Radio
    Wen Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: They’re upfront with requesting much music — 10 to 12 song submissions in a folder, submitted in email. They are also pretty clear in what they are looking for: We are looking for any underground, new age, lofi, instrumental, EDM, chillstep, reggae, acoustic music that speaks to your soul. There’s more info on the submissions page, but this gives you the gist.
  • Insomnia Radio
    Web Site || Submission page
    Note: There are two different submission options: Plain-jane send-us-your-music.
    The other option is sending music, album art, biographical data – stuff so you can be highlighted – but you also need to make the music available for download on the station’s site.
  • Indie Music Plus
    Web Site || Submission page
    Note:
  • Indie Music Bus
    Web Site || Submissions Pge
    Notes:
  • Indie Music Discovery
    Web Site || Submission page
    Note:
  • Excite Radio
    Web Site || Submission page
    Note: Submissions are to be done by way of social media
  • Radio Outlaw
    Web Site || Submission page
    Notes:
  • DOPECAUSEWESAID
    Web Site || Submission Page
    Notes: I’ve seen this site prominently in web searches and… Well? Dopecausewesaid throws me off simply because of how it looked. “Dope Cause We Said” isn’t bad phrasing, but optics and grammar didn’t hit me right. Useless personal note, that one. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    The submission page is also a mite tricksy. A business pitch is prominent after the submission write-up, and so is popularity boasting. Between them is a button to submit your music via a form pop-up.
    So, what about what they’re looking for?
    They take a wide variety of genres – Pop, Hip-Hop, RB, Folk, Rock, etc. They do review music videos as well as music. It’s also worth noting they want submissions that are available online and in embeds, via Spotify, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, and others.
    There are plenty of other do’s and don’ts that they talk about, but the most important one for the musician is to submit new music. Nothing older than three (3) months in age. Got it? Good… or should I say Dope, yo.
  • Cygnus Music
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: Unless I read this wrong, they want file-download URLs (sent via email) AND hard copies sent in? It may pro e to be one-or-the-other, it may not (meaning you must do both).
  • Pop and Rock Music Radio
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: Don’t let the title fool you, they’re on to a wider variety of music than pop and rock, but it comes with a catch: “Soft rock”. Think of it as adult contemporary, opening the door for blues, folk, pop, R&B, soul, rock, and I would think alt/indie, as long as the submission fits.
    email submission simplicity, but info is requested.
  • WIGWAM Radio Online
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: Open genre, fans of independent musicians. If they like what is sent to them through their submission form, they’ll play it, Social-media A friend holdsWigWam in high regard fast responses and his music getting regular airplay. Take a listen, take a shot with a submission.
  • Edge Radio
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: While this is a Downunder station, their multi-genre acceptance and goal to “helping new and emerging artists in Tasmania, Australia and around the world” led me to post their listing on the “General” section. Submissions are accepted physically by mail or digitally by email (with bio info, streaming links, and download links included in your mailing).
  • Eagles Nest Radio Network
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: I haven’t gone through the complete submission process, but Eagles Nest piques my interest as it takes submissions of content from the common services online for music Form submission. This was another station rer5ed to me by a friends in music. Give it a shot, tell us how it goes in comments.
  • idobi
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: Simple submissions form with the option to submit to a specific show on the station/network. They seem open to all submissions and don’t say a genre. I haven’t had a change o review the site as a listener, but their About page touts the site as “unfiltered” and “hardcore.”
  • Fire House Radio
    Web Site || Submission Page
    Notes: Country, Pop, and Rock music genres are what they are looking for, but they’ll take submissions solicited or unsolicited…as long as you follow the proper process. That — process — is part of why I’ve listed sites specifically and their pages and not just a list of email addresses to contact; there are other articles on the web that do those general listings, but it does not tell you the way the stations want to receive contact/submissions.
    FHR says it will take CDs by post and MP3s by email but MP3’s are a one-at-a-time submission process with specific info attached to each email. Review the submission page for all that jazz.
  • MPG Radio
    Web Site || Submission Page

  • You Heard This (Podcast)

  • Fresh on the Net

    Notes: “One “new” track may be submitted. The track must be public on SoundCloud and you will have to provide acce3ss for this site (I don’t mean just a link). You will not be able to submit again for three months…
  •  Trend City Radio
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: While this seems to be a generalized indie music station, make sure you pay attention while dealing with song-submission. No, you don’t have to buy a service to submit music… That “Buy Now” button is for the social media packages they promote
  • Cypher City Radio
    Web SiteA || Submissions Page

    Notes: Artists can submit a song and fand can suggest an artist. The submission fotm is rather simple, which may lead to email contact.
    Then again, maybe it’s a single song submission and I missed some info? I dunno… Take a chance either way.
  • Khlo Radio

  • California Music Chnel
    Web Site || Video Submission Page
    Notes: This listing may change in time, but it’s an aspect of music promotion that isn’t the general focus of this list: Music videos. The subject likely has a wide variety of coverage out there already, but in essence: YouTube and other networks offer playlist options a-la Spotify, with music videos being the focus.CMC is but one example
    GTP upload, License agreements… I don’t read the policy through. I did note CMC has other channels that nullify the idea this is a regional station.
  • MP3s for DJs
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: This one is a reach. I’ve never used it or known of it, and it seems named at labels and the top of the recording industry.
    You’re indie? Congrats, you are your own label.
    Submissions are via email with download links. Files are to be either MP3 at 320kbps or WAV. There’s more regarding how clean/dirty your music is, but I’ll let you read that.

    Notes: They are pushing quality on their submissions page… In essence, don’t send a shit-quality recording. I’m not talking bitrate specifically here, I’m talking audio-recording quality. Your files also have to be properly tagged.
    It’s also notable that the station wants more from an artist, “The more you submit the higher your chances are for getting airplay and the more tunes we have of yours, the higher your chances are of staying in a longer rotation”.

College Radio

FYI — the Music Director is the person to go to in many cases or music submissions/ At the same time, they’re inundated with a lot of contents and contact so getting a response to a submission to them – or any type of contact to them – is doubtful. I say this in part do to media-inquiry non-responses from several schools.

Note: No quick Jump menu. I’m overdue to add that and expand college listings.

    Notes: Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. While they accept digital submissions (via email, while including links to stream-sources of music and download links), they prefer physical copies of music (CDs or vinyl). They’re an album-orientated station and use physical catalog stuff (meaning if you digitally submit, they’ll have to burn a CD if your tunes are accepted)
  • EVUM – University of Miiami

    Notes: I feel horrible that I forgot Rollins College. I kvetched about a lack of music submission channels in the Orlando area and even said I had to look into schools. I’d been exposed to Rolins through TV new while growing up, and always tied to music.
    Open to all music genres, submissions are to be done physically by mail. They do not say what objects hwy accept (CD, vinyl, flash-drive, cassette) omo angles are available too (see the contact page – linked as “Submissions page” – above).

  • Owl Radio
    Web Site || Submission Page
    Notes: Kennesaw State University’s student-run radio operation in Georgia. Owl Radio wasn’t coming up prominently in college radio searches…it appeared later on in general stream sites. It’s also a pretty straight-forward, form-field submission page that is akin to generalized stream sites. That fact is highly notable as other colleges have avoided such things because of how many submissions they see.
    I don’t know if there is a preference for will-perform-live acts (local/regional performers), but they do inquire about this on the submission page.
  • WREK – Georgia Tech

    Notes: Email submissions, but the University of Western Georgia’s student-run station confused me with phrasing. They ake submissions from “local and unsigned” acts. Should this be read as local artists and generally unsigned acts, or local, unsigned acte of Georgia? Inquiring minds want to know.

  • Radio K
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: Like KXSC and The Owl, Radio K has shown up pretty prominent on search engine results for general streaming/submission options. The station is a student-run organization at the University of Minnesota. They play music of the past and present, which is great for the listener but a challenge for the submitter.
    Like many college stations, they take physical copies (CDs) of music. but also take digital copies (in .zip files, posted to a file-sharing site). It’s also relevant – and this goes for more than just this station – that they ask you to review their music (posted in playlists). If you stuff rits in with what they post, it should be a green-light for you to submit content.

    Here’s the thing: No singles. Albums and EPs of four tracks or more are preferred for on-air consideration. I may have read this wrong but I think they want both download (Dropbox) links and streaming links to go along with other data in submission emails. Check the page for more info. Submissions are via email.

    Notes: The station is in Vancouver, B.C. on the west coast of Canada. While the submissions-page link I used is for music, their official page points to a multitude of promotional options.
    They state a preference for physical copies of music — and no CD Singles — but will accept digital submissions. They’re picky about what they want — 320kbps MP2s, at least four tracks in a submission, and inro…lots of info.
    They also truly come off like college radio as they have a preference for local acts. It doesn’t mean this is a locals-only situation, but it does mean this is an opportunity for musicians in Vancouver and the Pacific Northwest. ..

  • WHCP
    Web Site || Submission page
    Notes: One of the early station listings, I need to review submissions again and better update this review.
    A Baltimore-based community station. I don’t know if they’re only accepting music from a local artist). With how prominent the station is online, I don’t think it’s just “locals”.
    Submitting to the station is more of a process simply because you must find the proper show/deejay to submit your music to.
    Unrelated to WHCP: Community broadcast stations (NPR affiliates) are also all over the United States. Some are locals-only, some will only take CD submissions.

      Notes:  Highlighting “emerging” artists/bands who are local (Boston, Massachusetts region), “national”, or mainstream – I quote national because I see this as US-indie rockers and not indie-in-general. One song – properly tagged and current – is to be submitted through the on-page form.

    Submissions are via email – you send music links and tell them about your tunes. They do not say which services they prefer or if they want to download links. You should put your best foot forward with submissions — send a bio as well as a musical description.

    It’s a form-submission page that I saw in my brief look as more intimidating than other submission forms.

    Notes: You’ll need to do more research with this site as only contact info is pro died on their submissions page.
  • Chill Lounge Florida`
    Web Site ||
    Notes: They aertrn’t up-front on submissions except disclosing means of contact, so I dropped them a line and here’s relevant info on submissions:
    They are open to submissions from all music genre for review, with no restriction on age of the songs (it does not have to be new music) Digital submissions should be MP3s with a high bitrate. Files should have Artist – Song Name in the file title and all metadata within it.
    In my listening experience , the music is primaril yinstramental, dance/EDM, Electronica, with the occasional Jazz number and other genres sprinkled in. If you are a folk, rock, country, RnB, or even just a piano player and have a chill/easy listening instrumental in your library, that may be your best chance for airplay You’re not restricted (instrumentals only? no) but this is a tough nut to crack.

  • River Radio – 104.9 the River
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: This one caught my attention as it’s locals-only in the Columbus, Ohio area and its class of music is Adult Contemporary? You don’t see local-only going that route often.

  • DetroitRap.com

    Notes: I did not go deep through the site to see if this is locals-only or if the location-name is just for name-sake. They take more than music in submissions though., Submissions of songs, videos, photos, events or other content is done by way of a form.
  • WQRT-LP Indianapolis

    • CHIRP

      Note: While I have not submitted to the station or done a more immaculate review, it is very much worth noting this is in the Chicagoland area on a terrestrial signal as well as online.
  • 88Nine Milwaukee

    Notes: To compliment CHIRP, this station is in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. While the station takes submissions from anywhere, they also stress they’ll give at least one play an hour to local talent.
  • WORTT FM
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: While searching for stations in multiple cities and regions the past few months WORT had a habit of popping up prominently in results. Madison, Wisconsin isn’t in the Rocky Mountains, deep South, Northeast or on the Pacific coast now is it?
    The station will take digital submissions by email but they prefer CDs. Unlike other terrestrial stations taking submissions, they will accept songs that need to air after 10 PM (read: foul content/language).

  • MileHi Music
    Web Site || Submissions Page
    Notes: This Denver-area site piqued my interest even with missing context (What genres do they prefer? Locals only?). EDIT: Upon further review…this is a site aimed at the mountains/promoting musicians of Colorado.
    While the submission page lacks context on submissions, it pushes “Song of the Week”.
    A “Song of the week” is picked andf promoted…with a video produced to promote it. A video that will ge a paid advertisement for a week on Facebook. That should seem reason enough to submit music without caring about other factors, but I advise you to do some listening and better research on this than just knee-jerk, gotta-do-it reacting.

    Notes: O5egon Public Broadcast covers the state and southwest Washington state. It’s unclear if this is a locals-only station, though they do make it a note that submission emails should include whee they can see you play live. What is abundantly clear is the notion they are a digital-first station and want huge files – WAV being preferred. You can find that info on the submission page along with CD submission guidelines.

    I did not go through shows to see genres. They also didn’t make it obvious if they want Aussies and blokes down under alone (g’ day to the Tasmanians and New Zealanders out there(. It’s worth taking a shot with or at least researching more.

    PBS is Downunder in Melbourne, Australia. They’re a direct form-submission and say it — they prefer digital copies/submissions and would like to hear from local acts and the international community. You’ll need to include a press release or a bio with your submission to go along with other standard form stuff.
