The College radio/Music Submission Quest

Instead of blogging regularly my focus has been on researching radio stations and sites and adding them to the listing of where musicians can submit music. That listing is above 350 and the queue of sites to review/add is well over 200!

It’s work. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I’ve been fixated on stations/sites that are tied to colleges lately. This comes in part as a preparation for the fall college semester… The fact society is breaking from social distancing and more students will be on campuses makes college radio an important target for those in the music field.

There are nearly 90 US colleges listed as of this writing and plenty to come… In fact, it’s a lack of stations/sites in states that has me pushing ahead.

And when I say “lack”, I mean “I can’t find friiggin’ options” for some states.

I have 38 states with at least one college radio listing. Of the 12 lacking states, I’ve be struggled with 11 of them:

  • Alaska
  • Delaware
  • Hawaii
  • Indiana
  • Maine
  • North Dakota
  • South Carollina
  • South Dakota
  • Utah
  • West Virginia
    and
  • Wyoming

It’s not that there’s a lack of college radio in these states, it’s the lack I can’t find ones who have a public music submission process or a generalized music-director-contact option. Social media posts from years ago don’t count; things change.

I’ve spent so much time looking for options in some places that I have neglected researching/adding stations in other states… Especially the midwest and great plains states. I’ll have to do a better job and not keep pushing listings in a scant few states.

In any case, if you know college stations in the above-listed states that accept music submissions, please let me know in the comments or through other contacts. Thanks in advance.
