Submit Music

Here are some tips to getting your music noticed to be considered for playlist on RDU 98.5FM:

Research – listen to our station. Does your music fit with our programming? If so, where?

Have a plan. If your song is on Soundcloud. then it should be serviced to the radio (or even slightly before you make it available to stream online.)

Email all the stations that the song is suitable for at the same time.

In the email:

Use the subject: NZ Artist (insert artist name here). The more information you can supply in the subject line the better. Programmers get sent a lot of music and this will help them prioritise

Be personal – introduce yourself and leave your contact details (including a phone number). Let them know where you are from and if you have any connections to other artists/bands.

Ensure you include a link to download your track (minimum quality 320 mp3) – it needs to be named and tagged correctly (there are too many Track 01s in the world!)

It’s a good idea to include a list of ‘focus songs’ – singles you are releasing and ideal timeframes of when you would like them to be played.

Attach one page with more information and links to your social media and website.
