  32. 32. Radio
  33. 33. Regular Radio…Still? Terrestrial radio is still very relevant for both new and established artist. Airplay is not a God-given right even for a great record but it’s still extremely important for breaking new artists. Despite the popularity of the Internet, radio stations receive hundreds of CD’s every month with few of them ever getting heard by the programmers, let alone getting any airplay. Radio promotion entails hiring specialist “indie-promoters” to solicit radio for airplay and feedback saving you the time and toil. Radio campaigns usually run 6-8 weeks. Feedback from radio is provided to you in detailed weekly reports that are pulled from our website.
