Radio Submission Tips

How To Get Played on The Radio [Submission Tips]
Get More (Meaningful) Spins – Radio Submission Tips

Peace – We’ve been on the air for almost 10 years now and have seen all sorts of submissions over that time. We also know that as an artist, you’d rather be making music than typing e-mails, so let’s make sure every one you send has the best chance of landing. Every situation is unique, but there’s some radio submission tips that will go a long way.

These aren’t rules for the sake of rules, there’s a human element to how songs make it to the airwaves and you want to make sure you’re going with the flow, not against it. You may know some of this already, but there’s a few things that almost everybody could improve on. And even if you’ve got it all down, I’ll bet you know another artist who could benefit from viewing.

On a related note… We’re always accepting submissions, so send us your records to get in the mix. They do not have to be clean. LFOD Radio is still FM, but we can get a bit wild now.

Questions? Comments? Drop ’em below or hit us on Twitter/Instagram.

Let’s put something together.

LFOD Radio Ep. 115 (Featuring Block to Booth)

Block To Booth is on a mission to revolutionize the studio service experience by bringing it right to your front door. We met Sensei Swagg & Umazi at MECon 2018, where they first told us about their vision. It’s been dope watching it evolve since then, growing to include a web series and promotional platform for artists as well. With Season One filming this weekend, the timing was right to bring them in for a conversation. We also learned a bit about their individual backgrounds: Sensei’s adventures as a Brooklyn kid learning to rap, Umazi’s experience as an international activist, and how their two paths brought them together. The positive energy these two radiate is contagious…

LFOD Radio Ep. 114 (Featuring REKS and Shortfyuz)

REKS & Shortfyuz are dropping Order in Chaos this Friday, September 14th. The two of them called in from Logan Airport on their way to tour Europe. This was our fourth convo with REKS, so we built off the previous ones and got a bit deeper into his mentality when it comes to moving through the music biz. We also got a preview of what’s to come on their new album, followed up on The Greatest X, and heard why they still hold Scientifik in such high regard. Catch them in a city near you this fall.

Welcome to Season V!!! Teya, Tashawn, and Sam are back to kick the season off with Du-Karan, fresh off the release of his new album, 9. The album explores new ground both sonically and emotionally so we dove into the motivations behind that shift, as well as the hazards of living with expectations. Though this is his first solo podcast, longtime listeners will remember Du-Karan from previous live appearances and for his role in launching our #ExtraBars series.
