We are similar to our press department, many stations in the radio industry rely upon our independent promoters to present them with new music and provide them with the band’s “story”. In the commercial radio world this would include other stations that have added the music.
At the college and noncommercial radio level, as independent promoter we forge our personal relationships with our music directors and DJs, with the goal of convincing these gatekeepers to spin the records we are working.
We are focused on maintaining our relationships with our college radio stations for the fact that the staff is continually rotating due to graduations.
Reasons others have hired us as their independent promoter because we definitely have access and relationships with specialty show hosts in markets that labels and independent artists do not. We have years of relationships with our stations, and we work hard to present your music and your story in the best possible light.
Our dedication, station relationships and good track record can definitely help you get wider exposure. We work college radio, noncommercial radio, Triple A, Americana and more. Our relationships with stations, who expect that we will bring them quality music with a good story. We will NOT take on your music IF we FEEL it will DIMINISH our relationships with companies, people, or stations we work with.
Of course, in the same way that publicists cannot guarantee print visibility, legit radio indies CANNOT GUARANTEE SPINS. Our job is to get the stations to hear the music, understand the band background story, and help them to make an informed decision about whether the station should add the record into rotation.
