How to submit music for playing on our stations
Our internet streaming stations only play completely Royalty Free Music which are Non-P.R.O. (ie composers/creators who produce their own music who are not registered with any Performing Rights Organisations (PRO) and/or Collective Management Organisation (CMO). Our license agreements are directly with the rightsholders (ie composer-producer) or the music library which manages the copyright on behalf of the rightsholders ie the non-PRO composer-producer. Although we welcome submissions, we must have a suitable license for broadcasting the track. We purchase your music using a worldwide non-exclusive license to broadcast it. All music tracks submitted must be free of third party rights.
If you are unsure what is non-PRO music, Shockwave-Sound has an excellent article contrasting General vs Completely Royalty Free Music.
