Airplay

How do I submit my music for airplay?

CDs can be sent to:

Power FM
Att: Chris
11061 Shady Trail
Dallas, TX 75229

Or you may submit an MP3 via email to chris email as long as it is under 10 MB in size (any larger and our spam filter will block your email). Please include the lyrics to the song as that will help the process go faster.

MP3, 256kBit/s – 44.100kHz, Stereo will sound decent on the air and allow about 5 minutes of audio under 10 MB.

KVRK will need to have submitted with the song:

01 – Song Title
02 – Artist/Band Name
03 – Album Name (Single Release if not applicable)
04 – Year
05 – Record Company (if applicable, Independent if not applicable)
06 – List of Composer or Composers
07 – List of Publishing Company or Companies that own the song or a list of the individual or group of individuals that own the song
08 – List of Publishing Representation (i.e. ASCAP, BMI or SESAC)
09 – ISRC # (if one has been applied for)

We put this info into our database for royalty reporting.

We’re licensed to play music represented by ASCAP, BMI and SESAC.

If the song is not represented by a music licensing company then a special license between the owner or owners of the song and KVRK will need to be created to give us legal permission to air the song.

Why isn’t Power FM playing my music?

Here are a few of the most common explanations:

Our music director hasn’t seen the song.

Songs should be sent either in physical form to the address above, or digitally to Chris’s email. We get a lot of submissions on Facebook, but Chris doesn’t see those submissions. Make sure you follow the file size guidelines as well, or our servers may block your email.

Lyrical content

We try to focus on music that communicates the love of Christ and the hope of the Gospel, though we will occasionally play songs that are not as obvious in their lyrical content. While we appreciate bands who choose to minister through means other than their lyrics, these are not the bands that are in our mission to play.

Genre

We are a Christian rock station, and while “rock” is a term that can be stretched to fit a lot of different styles, there are some songs that will just sound out of place with the rest of our playlist.

Production value

You really can tell a difference between a song that was recorded and produced professionally and one that was done on a low budget. You may have an incredibly talented band, but if your song isn’t recorded and mixed well, it will sound bad when played between professionally recorded songs. We recommend finding a couple songs that we play regularly and playing one before and after your song. It’s easier to notice a discrepancy in production value if you have something to compare your music to.
