    Hullo,

    What's the best way to get radio play? is it a case of sending them demos and shizzle by mail or is it more a case of knowing a DJ's sister's second-cousin's ex-partners new girlfriend kind of affair?

    cheers

    1) check the local stuff like Raw Talent (BBC) and lsrfm (Student Radio).

    2) have groovy music and a good story

    3) have a look a Tom Robinson on 6Music

    Just get a really well recorded CD of your stuff with a short professional BIO and some photos, and send it to DJs that play your kind of stuff..It's what we are doing at the moment.

    There used to be one on here before the board got updated, would be nice to get it back in the Musician Resources forum - surely someone has it saved off somewhere?

    I don't think photos will do anything except cost you money... see the Tom Robinson link in the resources forum.

    Had a song on XFM Manchester last Thursday, WCR, BBC WM, Kerrang, BBC Brighton playlisted us last summer, nothing to write home about, but then we haven't had anything strong enough to get out there yet. We should be ok with the new stuff..we'll see. Haven't sent it out yet cuz I'm still messing about trying to get stuff sorted..

    That presenter looks like ten men..ha, yeah, these small community radio things are well easy to get on. I get messages all the time off little podcasts and small online radio shows, one in Wolves has been playing loads of our stuff lately.
