ABOUT SUBMITTING MUSIC FOR AIRPLAY ON BLACK GOSPEL RADIO
We are always looking for GREAT GOSPEL MUSIC for airplay on our station as we like to keep our vast gospel library fresh. A majority of the music we receive each day comes to us from various national radio promoters that deal with sending out music to radio stations. We do also receive dozens of emails weekly from independent artists and here are a few tips we’ve accumulated for submission.
Check our playlist and charts to see if you really think your music would fit on a station like ours. We do play only gospel music but specialize only in a few sub-genres — traditional, contemporary and quartet. We do not have holy hip-hop, gospel jazz, instrumental gospel or rap gospel in our regular rotation. Please do not take this personally, but your music may not fit our format.
Music submitted must be well produced with the highest caliber broadcast quality, fully mixed and mastered. We do not accept demos. We also ask that your radio edit be less than four (4) minutes, thirty (30) seconds in length.
HOW TO SUBMIT
We only we receive independent music submissions through the form below. All email submissions are ignored and deleted. We do have strict submission guidelines and because of the sheer volume of submissions, we must insure that all of the information we need is gathered. Your single music be registered with Neilson BDS and must be available on the major digital platforms in order for us to consider your submission. If your song is already in the Billboard Gospel TOP 50 we’ve probably already received it from a radio promoter. If your song is not in the Billboard Gospel TOP 30 yet and you’d like to increase your chance of airplay, you may submit your song below.
We listen to as much of the music we get in as possible, however, because of the large influx of music we receive it takes us a while to get through our queue.
We do not do verbal or email tracking of music because we are monitored by Neilson BDS and by Digital Radio Tracker. Please receive your your spin information from those sources. We also tag many artists via Twitter the songs we play.
Please understand that due to the volume of submissions you will only get a response from Black Gospel Radio if there is interest in or questions regarding your song submission.
