How to Submit Your Music
Due to the number of CD's received,
CD's sent in for consideration CANNOT BE RETURNED.
add your music to our play list or to be scheduled for an on-air interview
on the "The Radio Cafe" show:
We want to play your music, bottom line. What
you need to know, though, is that we have LOTS of music to listen to so it
may take some time to check it out, but we really will listen to it. For
sure, no lie!
Because we receive a lot of songs, we aren't
gonna be able to provide feedback, evaluations or info as to if we
received it. If it is a song that is selected for our playlist, we will
for sure contact you enough ahead of time so that you can be sure to hear
it on the radio or online, and so that you will be able to let your family
and friends know to listen for your music, too. We may even contact you
and do an interview with you "on the air", so you can give some background
info about your music!
So, here's how to submit your music:
#1) You must be a member of
(This is so that listeners of
the show will be able to easily find more information on the artists that
they hear on the show)
2) Once you are a member of ReverbNation and the Indie Music Channel
(or if you are already a member
of both), fill out the form below
3) Email an mp3
(no other file format) of your copyrighted music
(your submission MUST be your original work)
Please, do not "snail mail" your
music unless we request it. We have enough cds laying around.
All we need in order to put your music on our show is pull it from
your mp3. Plus, we would prefer if you kept the cd and sold it and
made some money off of it
(rather than it sit in our pile of other cds).
If you must "snail mail" it, send
Metro Media Group, Inc
200 East Big Beaver Rd.
Troy, Michigan 48083
Please do not
send us any press kits. We have no use for those, either. Save those for record
labels, agents, mangers, etc.
If your music is chosen
for air play, you will be contacted via email as to the air date and station(s)
that your music will be played.
There will also be a link on this website
to your Indie Music Channel "Artist Page" for listeners to go to to get more
info on you and your music!

City & State
We don't have many other rules, just some
guidelines to save both, you and us, a lot of time and to help make sure that
your stuff gets played on the show:
- - Submitted music must be your own
original work, meaning you and/or your band wrote the song.
- - For music submitted to be played on "The Radio
Cafe" radio show, Lyrics should have NO profanity.
Period. This is still commercial radio, sorry. We may even have to
request a lyric sheet of the song you want us to play prior to us playing it
on the show. If you feel that your music is for a more "mature"
here to submit your music to "The Radio Cafe Xtreme".
- - Production value of your music is important –
don't settle for a junky mix! One of the biggest reasons that we are
unable to play some of the music that people submit is because of a rushed
mix, levels are all over the place, etc. Be sure to send us your best! Your stuff
should be of the same kind of clarity as other songs you hear on the radio.
Other than that, that's it! The
Radio Cafe' is truly here to get your music heard and to help local, independent
artists like you get radio play. Your music may
be played in other markets and on other radio stations besides a station in your
hometown. Your music may also be played as a podcast on radio station's
websites which enables your music to be heard around the world!
So submit your music and let's get it
on the air! You keep making it, and we'll keep playing it!
