Top 7 Radio Stations That Will Actually Play Independent Artists

radio stations that play independent artists

Here's an honest look at some places for indie artists to get radio promotion. Without the support of a label, an extremely connected A&R, or a heavyweight radio promoter on your side it would be difficult to get a massive radio campaign going.

I don't want you to be confused. This list is not going to places you can get 1,000,000,000 listeners for $5 (If you find that place please let me know). However, I've searched the depths of the internet to find some quality opportunities for artists to get radio play.

There should be opportunities for artists here regardless of genre. Hip-Hop, Rock, Pop, Smooth, R&B, EDM, Funk, etc. are all welcome!

Commercial radio is usually an arena where you do have to either have a load of cash or do some back handed things to get in, but these days you don't need commercial radio to make a big impact. There's more power in the artists hands now than ever before! Spend your money wisely and you could be doing some big things in music.

If you're an artist out there who makes quality music and wants to add radio promotion into your music marketing efforts, then this is for you!

1. KISS INTERNATIONAL 107.7 FM

Kiss will guarantee your airplay on a national and international level. PLEASE remember that in order to be on the radio your song needs to be PROFESSIONAL. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. Mixed and mastered engineering and professional instrumentals.

The station spins also pay royalties to the artists, so make sure you are signed up with a PRO (BMI, ASCAP, SESAC). If you don't know what those are you are not ready for international radio play yet and should submit to podcasts instead for the moment.

A PRO is a performance rights organization. Every time your music is played on radio or television you get a royalty. You can find out more information on their websites.
