Some Sort Of Rock Show Music Submission Process

January 9th, 2019 No comments

Do you have music you would like considered for airplay on Some Sort of Rock Show?
I have so much respect for artists who are sacrificing to produce hope-filled music and would love to hear it! Some Sort Of Rock Show plays Christian pop rock, hard rock (mostly clean vocals), roots/southern rock, modern rock, alt-rock and some hip-hop.

_____________________________________

Things to know before you submit: 

1. I only have room for about 28 songs each week, so please don’t be offended if your music is not selected. 

2. I receive many submissions and I listen to everything that is sent my way. I can’t always listen immediately, so please be patient.

3. I will get back to you if I have any questions or if I have decided to play your music. If you don’t hear back from me, I will not be playing your music. Try submitting it to other stations. 

4. When I listen to submissions, I am listening purely through the Some Sort of Rock Show grid. So it’s either a yes or a no. I am not the guy you want to get specific advice from. Please don’t ask me for an explanation of why I am not going to play your music or what changes you should make to get airplay on the show. I also do not write reviews. 

_____________________________________

To submit your music please email the following to SomeSortofRockShow@wjtl.com:

1. The song you would like to consider. (mp3 or wav file)

2. Your bio with info on where you are from, how long you’ve been doing music, album info, and the heart behind your music, etc.

3. A photo.

Thank you!
