If I send you an album through the mail, will you play it on air?
So, you made a record and you think it's good enough to be played on air. Well, you've come to the right place. WRFW has a long reputation of providing new and exciting music to the people of River Falls, Wisconsin, its surrounding areas, and to those who listen to us online. Every day the station receives music from all over the country from people just like you. Although we promise that we will attempt to listen to everything that comes through our door, there is no guarantee that we will play it. Those decisions are made by the music director and are based on several different factors, including the current tastes of the DJs.
How do I send WRFW my music?
Although it’s the slowest and oldest method, snail mail continues to be the best way for us to receive new music. We appreciate being able to hold a physical copy of your record and it lets us get a sense of who you are as a musician or as a band. With that said, there are a few guidelines that we recommend that you follow. It makes the whole process easier for all of us.
- To ensure that your music arrives at the station in one piece, please mail all music in a proper protective envelope.
- If you are sending a cd with a jewel case, please send the case without the plastic wrapping. If it makes you feel more comfortable during the shipping process, feel free to tape the case shut.
- Please send all music to the following address: WRFW 88.7 Music Director 306 North Hall, River Falls, WI 54022.
- Although we love when we receive band merch along with your music, this does not better your chances for airplay. Anything like that would be considered payola and that's illegal.
- Please send us all and any contact information you have. Many times our DJs will get excited about new music and want to interview artists on air. It goes without saying that this is a terrific opportunity for you to gain a bigger fanbase.
- Finally, please attach a note with which songs on the cd you are trying to push the most. On the flip side of that, also point out any song that would not be deemed acceptable by the FCC.
