Introducing our new Music Curators

Written by on 4 July 2016

Here at RDU98.5FM we strive to bring the freshest and best music to our listeners. So we’ve decided to freshen up the way we source our music and make selections each week. As of 20th June 2016, we have moved to a specialist curatorial team to broaden our scope and effectiveness in play listing A-rotate.

“Why put one finger in the pie when you can put the whole fist?”  Anon.

We all agree. Smashed it.

—–> ALL MUSIC SUBMISSIONS GO TO music@rdu.org.nz <—–


CDs are nice, records are better, but email is the best way to submit. If you have a present send it to PO BOX 699, Christchurch 8140.

Check here for a guide to submitting songs to Alt Radio.

After tracks have been submitted we sort them by genre and package them up for our Music Curators so they can make their weekly selections.

Curators choices get submitted on Thursday morning, and our new weekly playlist goes to air on Mondays. There are approximately 25-30 new playlist tracks a week.

You can see our New To Playlists here, or if you would like to get our weekly Top 100/New To Playlist email on Mondays email gemma@rdu.org.nz.

We will also be starting Spotify playlists with our curators selections! They will pop up in the following weeks. In the mean time, why don’t you follow our Spotify.

If you have any queries, or want to know any more details email Gemma – gemma@rdu.org.nz.

XOXO Gemma and the RDU team.
