College and Public Radio
There are 500 stations that report to the CMJ CHART (the charts which are read by the music industry to find the next up & coming bands)
The major labels usually mail to all 500, but this is not cost efficient for us independents, so we deal with CMJ’s HIGHEST RATED STATIONS which have 3 TIMES MORE LISTENERS & CHARTING WEIGHT THAN THE REST. (You can choose to mail to anywhere from 100 to 300 stations (we can advise you after we hear your music).
We have had relations for years with these stations so we know which stations are into what genres of music (ALT., ROCK, TECHNO, AAA, Singer-songwriter, etc.)
