OUR MUSIC MISSION
Edge Radio is committed to helping new and emerging artists in Tasmania, Australia and around the world. Edge Radio maintains a large catalogue of carefully managed and rotated music. A multitude of diverse ears with different opinions will hear your music and consider it for airplay.
WHERE SHOULD I SEND CDS TO?
Send all material to Music Department, Private Bag 41, Hobart, TAS 7001. Make sure you include a biography and contact details, including an email address on each copy you send Edge Radio.
HOW MANY COPIES SHOULD I SEND?
Please send multiple copies of your CD so we can distribute them to appropriate programs – this may increase your chances of getting some airplay. The more you send, the more widely we can distribute. Four or five CD’s is what we generally suggest.
HOW DO I DIGITALLY SUBMIT MUSIC TO EDGE RADIO?
When submitting music digitally to Edge Radio, please make sure to include the following:
- A short bio with any upcoming gig details
- A link to stream music (Soundcloud, Bandcamp etc etc…)
- A link to a high quality download (320kb/s MP3, AAC, WAV, FLAC, OGG)
Email all this to [email protected]
I’M A TASMANIAN ARTIST. SHOULD I SUBMIT MY MUSIC THE SAME WAY?
Yes please. Follow the same guidelines as outlined above. Tasmanian artists are asked to clearly mark both digital and physical submissions with, Tasmanian Music Submission. Including this in the email subject line of your digital submission means our systems will instantly pick it up making sure we don’t overlook it. If you’re a not a Tasmanian band and you do this you’ll probably get ignored.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF YOU’VE RECEIVED MY MUSIC AND IF IT WILL BE PLAYED?
All music sent to the Music Department at the above address is listened to within 2-4 weeks of posting. Mail can be slow getting to Hobart so please be patient. If we like what we hear we’ll add your CD to our playlist or pass it onto a particular program. We cannot give a huge amount of individual feedback.
CAN I TALK TO SOMEONE ABOUT MY MUSIC OR A CD I’VE POSTED?
Edge Radio understand that feedback on you music is important. You can arrange a meeting with the Music Director or Program Director at the station if you so wish. But please be aware that station staff often don’t have a huge amount of time to provide vast amounts of feedback.
HOW DO I ARRANGE AN INTERVIEW?
Email [email protected] with your request. Due to the large number of approaches we receive, please note that we may not be able to respond to every request.
HOW DO I ARRANGE A GIVEAWAY OF TICKETS / CDS?
Due to the overwhelming number of requests we receive, giveaways can only be done in two ways:
(1) on the back of an in-studio interview. You must let your Edge Radio contact know in advance if you are interested in doing a giveaway as all giveaways must be approved by the Program Director.
(2) As part of a promotional campaign. Under our broadcast licence, we are restricted to broadcasting five minutes of promotional announcements per hour, and on-air giveaways are counted in that time.
To book, contact the Sponsorship & Promotions Department on (03) 6226 7273, or email [email protected].
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO TO PROMOTE MY MUSIC?
Edge Radio offers bands & artists affordable on-air promotional campaigns. Our standard rates are based on 30-second on-air spots. Contact the Sponsorship & Promotions Department (03) 6226 7273, or email [email protected].
YOU ALREADY PLAY MY TRACKS AND PROMOTE MY GIGS – WHY TAKE OUT A PROMOTIONAL CAMPAIGN?
Edge Radio is a not-for-profit station and we rely on promoters, bands and artists buying on-air promotional campaigns in order to maintain the ongoing viability of the station, and to ensure that we’re here the next time you’d like us to plug your event. Our campaigns are effective and offer excellent value.
CAN I OFFER A DISCOUNT TO EDGE RADIO SUBSCRIBERS?
Get some additional promotion for your event by offering a discount for Edge Radio Supporters. We’ll list your dates, times, line-up info and a basic blurb (1-2 sentences) on the ‘offers‘ page of this website. You need to offer a reasonable discount – ideally at least 20% off. Email your info to [email protected].
