1) Get shows added to the Local Music Calendar? Nope, the calendar is completely automated. The artists, who we've featured on our radio show and have profiles for, add their show information to their Bandsintown profile and our calendar pulls from there. It checks for updates each night.
Bandsintown Links For Artists:
Installing Bandsintown on your artist facebook page
Add a show/tour date on bandsintown
2) Add an artist to the show & DC Artist Database? Profiles are created each week for artists we play on the Radio Show/Podcast. The artist simply needs to fill out the Submit Music Form on this website.
3) How to get tracks added to the 96.7FM Station Library (which is separate from DC Music Rocks)? email your CLEAN LYRIC VERSION/RADIO EDIT song files as attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org. Subject should be: "Local Music Submission by Local Artist: xxxxx". Email message body should include your top 3 track names and "Recommended if you like" reference to big name artists you sound similar to.
REMEMBER! 1) Send the final released versions of the song files, like the ones people get when they purchase your music online with all ID3/MetaData filled in (artist, album, title, etc). 2) Files can be in MP3 or WAV format. 3) a good guideline is emails less than 10mb in attachments. Break it up into multiple emails if necessary. 4) They will only keep 2-3 songs by each artist. Only send your top 3 tracks. 5) Include "Recommended If You Like" reference to big name bands who you sound similar to.
We would love to hear from you! Send us a note!
