Need to get Radio Spins?
Indie Artists Alliance has developed the most up to date listing of College Radio Stations in all 50 states.
It’s a fact! Without the backing of a major record label, most Indie artists will never get airplay on mainstream radio. Why? Because in the big business of music, cash (for promotion) is king and struggling performers usually don’t have much.
However, that doesn’t mean there are no other exposure opportunities out there. One avenue for Indie artists to get their tunes spun on the airwaves is college radio.
There are hundreds of these stations in the United States looking for quality music to broadcast — in all genres. That doesn’t mean they will play everything that lands on their desk, but as a rule, college radio stations are open to giving new songs a chance if they believe they will appeal to their audience.
This guide lists stations, detailed and up-to-date contact information, as well as inside information about how to submit material.
“Radio play means more CD, digital media sales and gigs,” says Phil Peretz of Indie Artists Alliance, “We are driven to create new and unique ways for Indie Artists to succeed as our growing suite of products and services and are proud to announce the release of this guide.”
Along with submission tips, every state-by-state listing in the guide includes the genre’s of each station, as well as their address, main phone number, studio phone number, email address and contact person.
It also states what type of formats they prefer songs to be submitted in, such as CD’s, CD-Rs or mp3s. This listing of radio stations is part of the Indie Artists Alliance Membership.
