Have you ever had your music played on College or FM Radio?
We have been played on FM and College radio. KJEE in Santa Barbara, California Localize it Pick Of The Week twice. and KCSB the college radio station for UCSB.. we have played live in studio and multiple times on air.
What things did your band try in order to get on the radio and did they work?
The only thing i have ever done was walk straight to the studio. and handed it to the receptionist. no one has ever told me why my music would not be selected. i just assume when they don’t email back. also don’t think that radio station played alot of local music and played alot of Rock n Roll. So picking the right station is very important. Classic rock stations won’t play your new music. KJEE in Santa Barbara is a modern rock station which is a perfect platform for us.
