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 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.”

Contact advice after you mail

WTJU receives between 30 and 100 recordings a week that are then distributed among several music directors. Please wait a minimum of eight days (depending upon mailing method) before contacting us. Music Directors are volunteers and may be at the radio station only once a week.
