There are several things we do require before we can consider your music for airplay on our station. We accept original music or cover songs. If you do provide a cover, you need to let us know the name of the original artist and publisher (copyright owner) at the time of submission.
Submission of your work does not guarantee airplay but does imply that you agree to let us air your music with no obligations on the part of BWNR as far as monetary consideration above that which is required by the U.S. Copyright Office in regards to royalties which we are required to pay monthly via our license from Sound Exchange.
BWNR assumes no publishing rights to any musician’s work by airing it, but may ask for permission to use the music on Compilation CDs which will only be used to raise funds to cover our yearly fees and modest expenses.
We’re All About You
At BWNR we are totally about the musicians and artists so we NEVER ask you to pay us to air your music. Just send us a song (or songs) to us for review. We only accept studio quality songs – no demos. Please attach it to an email or provide a link to where we can download it. (Note: if sending multiple songs, please email a link to a download location – our email service doesn’t allow multiple large files). We are a very small staff and this will decrease the amount of time it takes us to respond to your request for airplay. We also strongly encourage you to become a member of Sound Exchange for many reasons but mostly because that’s where we send your royalties each month after we play them! It’s free and all licensed internet stations like BWNR, SiriusXM, and even iHeart and Pandora do the same thing!
Because we are licensed under the rules set up by the Copyright Royalty Board and registered with Sound Exchange for the purpose of reporting the songs that we play, we must ask that each artist provide us with the following information before we can air your work.
- Artist or Band Name
- Main Contact Name
- Genre of Music
- Title of Song(s) and Album
- International Sound Recording Code(ISRC) if available ( We encourage you to research this)
- Publisher/Copyright Owner of submitted music
- Record Label name (or Unsigned/Independent)
- Website and Social Media Links (to help promote you)
- A short BIO of the band (or artist)
- WAV or MP3 file(s) of your music
- Any other information you feel you would like us to have
- Email the above information to: Cliff Broyhill-BWNR Operations.
Special Note Concerning Albums
We understand the costs to produce and create CDs, but if you would like to send a physical copy of your album to us, it helps us when we decide what albums to feature on Sunday CD Showcase. The reason is we have to have a physical is so we can play the whole album as one long audio file. We can not by regulation, play each track individually. It this is okay for you, mail it to this postal address:
- Cliff Broyhill
- Bandwagon Network Radio
- 300 N. Bentley Ave APT 23
