Hello band with a newish release!

CJSW offers a service to mail out your record to the other campus and community radio stations across Canada, and we’d love to get your record out to the world.

A little extra information if this is your first time hearing about this service: Every couple months we do a mailout to other campus/community radio stations across Canada of local Calgary talent to help spread the word on all the great music coming out of this city. The mailout goes to the stations on the Earshot! list (http://www.earshot-online.com/stations.cfm) as well as CKUA and CBC Radio 3 and has the benefit that it is coming from a trusted source (the mighty CJSW 90.9 FM).

We are now offering a few different packages so you can choose the best one to suit your budget. The money is simply to cover postage costs, sticker printing, bubblewrap etc. Everything is packaged by a volunteer and we don’t aim to make or lose any money on this service – we just want to help get awesome Calgary music out across Canada.

Manufacturing add-on

If you only released your record digitally, we’re also offering a new service just for you. For an additional $3/disc we will print a tray card, and burn discs with printed artwork. If you want this option, on top of the package you chose above, please include the following at least a week before the mailing deadline:

  • Extra $3/disc to cover the print costs
  • Cover image 5” x 5” at 300 dpi
  • High quality audio files (no FLAC)
  • 150 word bio (to replace the 60 word bio)
  • Name 3 similar sounding bands for the sticker
  • List all potty-mouth tracks on the record
  • Clearly state the album particulars ie, Artist, Title, Label, and an email contact
  • That’s it – we’ll take care of the rest

When we mail out your record, we will provide you with a list of the stations it was mailed to so that you can followup if you would like.
