PLEASE NOTE BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR RELEASE:
- CJSW Radio only accepts DIGITAL MUSIC SUBMISSIONS
- We accept any new album (released within the last three months) that contains three or more unique tracks for on-air consideration (please send us the full release).
- WE DO NOT ACCEPT SINGLES!
- MP3 format only
- Send albums in a .zip format
If you are a local or independent artist who needs assistance submitting digitally, please get in touch with Helen Young, Music & Performance Director, at [email protected].
Once we’ve received your submission, it will go into review rotation where CJSW volunteers and staff ensure it’s appropriate for our library and airwaves. This process is about fit, not merit, so don’t take it personally if we don’t end up doing anything with your release. CJSW aims to promote music not supported by mainstream media and we do take this into account when reviewing music.
CJSW is a freeform radio station, which means programmers are volunteers and have the freedom to choose the music they play. We don’t have rotations or playlists. Once your album has been added to our library, it’s all up to the programmers. Our job is to make music available to the programmers, not to tell them what to play.
We do our tracking via a weekly email. If you’d like to know if your release was accepted and if it made it to our charts, please sign up! You can also search for an artist name on cjsw.com to see if it’s getting spins, and check our weekly charts on EarShot and NACC.
