    Radio play is full of so much bullshit politics, With the exception of certain smaller scale stations and University stations, DJ's onli play what has been established as good or what they've been payed off to play. If u can link up with a cool DJ, asking him personally is one of the best ways to do it. Get out there and network. Peace

    dont expect to EVER have your song in any type of rotaion on any type of commercial radio without MAJOR financial backing...

    songs are like ad's nowadays....record labels pump buku bucks into stations to have there songs in rotation...

    a program director WILL NOT play you if you dont have proper representation...

    and dont bother asking the djs to play it...cuz 99% of the time they have NO CONTROL AT ALL over what gets played...even though they may make it seem like they do


    dont hold ur breath is all im saying..no matter how good ur quality is

    yeah...everyone quit dreamin

    lead is right

    u think its a co-incidence that only the same 20 or so songs play nonstop on the same stations every day for like 2 months?

    radio shows are exactly like tv shows...just no picture..if u want a commercial or tv program to air...u gotta throw down sum loot

    its like like the radio is sum ultimate destination, and just if, just if, sumone herd u, theyll play ur song, and then, bam ur a star, and u get signed. no. maybe that's wat growing up watching too much disney channel has you believing, but the truth is, u ain gettin on the radio unless you call in on the phone, win a contest, or ur on a label. if u wanna be on the radio, make a demo and send it out. and pray to god u get signed.

    u have to register whatever songs you want played with a publishing company otherwise as far as a radio station's concerned...they're not gonna play it. and yeah, there are a lot of stations now that have like a "local" night...u can try and get through those channels. There are a million options in gettin your shit heard, even if it isn't necessarily on teh radio. U make yourself heard the radio won't have a choice but to play you.
