Promoting your CD to radio takes a lot of organization and time management skills. Let me help organize your process. First you need to find radio stations that are willing to accept submissions from independent artists (contact names, addresses, phone and email for radio stations across the globe are listed in “The Indie Guide To Music, Marketing and Money” and The Indie Contact Guide – it’s companion book).
As previously reported the song which was released on Feb Feb or cantonese songs Feb depending on the country rocketed to No on iTunes in many countries in the song’s first day of release. Based on first-week sales, “One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)” is sure to be a Top 10 hit in several countries.
Musical notes are named by letters. The notes start out at A and end at G. The lines of the stave are identified as just after the exact same notes. The center line (The a single not penned on the paper) as you know is the observe identified as C, the area previously mentioned the line is D, the line above is E, the area previously mentioned that line is F, the line previously mentioned is G and the area above that is A and so on up the lines.
Keep them informed of any newsworthy items. Every time you succeed in getting another station to add your music, go a little further on the chart, or score a major gig, send out a press release by faxes or emails, and definitely hype it on the phone during your conversations with them. Build excitement so you keep yourself in the forefront of their minds. Keep them interested in your music. Offer to do interviews and liners. Liners are a small commercial you record for the station. For example: ‘Hi! This is Joe Smoegh and you are listening to today’s hottest mix on such and such a radio station.’ I will say it again, be persistent and pleasant.
This is one of my favorite pitches of late; the “less is more” sales strategy employed by a major radio chain. They somehow think they can convince you that selling a:30 second spot is just as good as a:60 second spot. Oh, I forgot to mention, at the same rate or at a premium rate because “you’re getting the same [or more] after all”! Then you tune in the station and you hear 12 commercials in a break instead of the old 4-6 before the new concept came into play.
Make some music. A recording via your computer, microphone, and Microsoft Outlook (or other software) is a great way to send your greetings, your favorite cantonese songs, or even your favorite story for grandma and grandpa to hear on Grandparents Day. Later, they can listen to your message again, whenever they need a little boost. Or do it the old-fashioned way. Send a cassette.
The students prepared thought provoking questions to ask during the question and answer part. When it was time to ask the questions, the local anchor asked our group where we were from and how we came to be there. The young man who was chosen to play Edward during the play, excitedly answered the questions and told their story of how they came to be there.
