Promoters or Agents

If you want your Artist played on Radiodowntown.ca this is a must read.

  1. Its very simple, you can send any artist song to new@radiodowntown.ca however it must again have in the meta the song title and artist.
  2. We will NOT be contacting the promoter that the songs have been selected for airplay, but will contact the artist by email, they in turn can contact the promoter. It takes us well over 15 hours per week to listen to the songs sent in as we get well over 220 entires per week.
  3. If an email or contact information for the artist is not supplied it will not be played.

Note: Our past experience is that the Promoter or Agent can be quite busy and may not be letting the artist know that their songs are being played on our station, so we do that for you, all you have to do is send us in their contact information and I am sure they will contact you to say thank you. This is a Win-Win for all. We do all this at no cost to the artist or the promoter, we just want to help.
