Artists ... get your music played on AND RADIO:
Think you've recorded a great track that the world needs to hear? Then let's hear it!
Owned, built and produced by working musicians to showcase new artists, AND RADIO is your opportunity platform ... giving you as an artist, the same influence on the station as a record label or professional plugger!
AND RADIO ... there's nothing like it.
There are 3 ways to get your music played on AND RADIO
1: For FREE on “Black On Track” new music and unsigned artist showcase show.
2: By winning a studio session for our Live Lounge (Contact Black Room Studios https://www.blackroomstudios.co.uk)
3: By being accepted for the General Playlist - see cost packages.
To be included on the General Playlist for just £50 per track accepted (Rate will be reappraised for 2021. But, as with all AND products since 2001, those that help me at the start, will continue to get a preferential rate ... forever). The cost covers the entire year or part of. Which means your track will be to be played on the General Playlist and included in other genre appropriate playlists and features until July 31 of that year. So ... for the best value ... do it ASAP!
For a track to be entered onto the playlist, it first needs to be sent for consideration. If I think the track suits AND RADIO we'll get back to you to start the ball rolling. Get 2 or more tracks accepted and we drop the price down to just £25 per track.
COMING SOON! In addition, play-listed artists will have access to our shop to offer paid downloads.
Why are we charging to be on the station?
We're not. We'll happily include original and unsigned tracks we like on the twice weekly Black On Track show. We're charging to be on the playlist. The choice is yours. To be on twice for free, or regularly, with The Beatles, Coldplay, Lady Gaga and Imagine Dragons etc. AND ... as most of the of the station’s cost is to allow AND RADIO to play The Beatles, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Lady Gaga and all the world’s other great artists etc, it seems only fair to ask aspiring artists that will benefit from the association ... to chip in.
Don't want to pay £25 to promote your masterpiece and think we should be biting your arm off to play it for free? After all, you're on free website playlists all over the world and been #1 in their local charts for the last 2 years. Then, as someone that's been in the music business for most of my adult life, I'd question if you were making the right career choice. In fact let me help you. You're not.
But if you are serious, there really is only one choice. You need your music to be heard regularly, so you need to get it on decent playlists.
Record labels and promoters pay a small fortune (Sometimes a large fortune. Want to see how Pitbull, Snoopdog, Joss Stone and others get on radio playlists? Click here for some free advice and costs: www.pluggers.com/costs) to get their artists on radio playlists. We're giving you the same power as a record company from as little as £25!
Some straight talking ...
The choice to pay or not to pay is of course yours. I'm not going to get rich from a few dozen £25's. But by paying just a little, it shows me you're serious. It's not about the money. It's about finding talented, committed artists. I'm committed. I've stuck my neck out and my money in, to create this showcase opportunity platform for you. So I don't think its unreasonable of me to expect you to show me you're serious too. Is that fair?
UPLOAD YOUR MUSIC. What to do now?
If you’re serious, read the rest of the information on this site so you can answer the many questions that will come at you about AND RADIO. There will be enthusiasts and cynics in equal numbers. If you want to succeed in the music business ... do your homework! Then:
Decide which is your best song. Send that. Don't explain it. It needs to stand out as a track before before we can go any further.
Make sure it's radio friendly. A five minute drum solo, dramatic pauses, explicit lyrics or poor recording quality etc. will sadly see your masterpiece rejected.
Email it to email@example.com (Best quality MP3’s are best.)
If I like the track you will receive an email back and an offer to submit more if you want.
Depending on how many tracks are accepted you can then decide what Payment Package you wish to purchase and you make the purchase.
Once payment is received your song(s) will uploaded onto AND RADIO’s general playlist, plus any other relevant playlist ie: Rock, Country, Local, Soul, Jazz, Lunch etc.
Tell your Universe that you are on AND RADIO and get them to listen. I'm constantly amazed at how many artists get their tracks on playlists and then don't tell their fans they're there ... relying just on the playlist to promote them. SKY Sports doesn't simply rely on being on the TV does it? No ... it advertises! So do it!
