Broadcasting has never been easier! Start your station today.
There is nothing like the feeling you get when you first get heard on the radio. It's kind of like wow, that's my song!! Radio is a good tool to get yourself promoted to many people at the same time but it doesn't always come easy. There are various stations that have shows geared towards new music but they are limited to the amount of new music they play, especially from new artists. The thing we have to remember that RADIO is a business that gets paid by advertisers. Advertisers get paid by having all these listeners from the station shop with them because they heard their ad. The Listeners tune it because it's music being played that they like or are familiar with so that brings us back to where
we started at, Radio playing the music that the people like so they can get the advertisers to pay the radio......Understand the cycle yet?
The way you break into that cycle is to either get popular, become a advertiser or pay a radio promoter. It is illegal to directly pay for play but you can buy airtime and run whatever you want in the commercial spot as long as the quality is met. With that being said, there are other ways to get played on the radio also. You can do drops for Dj's or even show intros. You can also choose stations that are smaller like college and internet stations that play your genre of music. The smaller stations are always looking for new music from the next best thing that is yet to blow.
Outside of trying whats listed above you can also start your own internet radio station so that you can control whats being played. You can be the DJ and the Music Director who makes the decision to play songs. There is a huge fanbase that is waiting for new music and they can be yours. Starting your Own station is a way to reach them. The easy way to start is by using Live365 because they make it easy for you and they even offer a free trial to help you get your station up and going at no charge. Try them out and see.
