How to submit music to WTJU
Whether you’re promoting a major-label recording or you’ve recorded a CD in your home please read this before submitting your recording.
95% of programming at WTJU is music! WTJU has eclectic music programming: so eclectic that we actually need to have music directors for each major genre plus a subgenre or two! This is our quirk, not yours, so the following information is here to make it easy for you to get your material on-air at WTJU!
Airplay Tracking Contact Information
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 434-924-0885 if you have additional questions before sending your recording(s).
Contact advice before you mail: Please provide ample information about your recording
Right sample request:
“Hi, my group plays an eclectic blend of jazz and salsa… though we are unique we have been compared to _________. If you would like to learn more about us check out our website. May we send you our CD? What is your address?”
Wrong sample requests:
“Hi, do you accept music CDs?”
“Hi, are you interested in my CD? Here’s my website.”
