Due to the high volume of music submissions, we have implemented some basic guidelines for
submissions. To submit your music for airplay at BOIR (or any other campus/community station
for that matter) just follow these simple directions.
**NOTE: This guidelines do not apply to local artists.
BOIR accepts music in the form of CD, record, cassette and high quality mp3, WAV, or FLAC files.
For physical releases, place your record in an envelope, preferably with some sort of
protective padding either around the CD or in a padded envelope itself. Having a spine on your
record with the artist name and record title clearly displayed will dramatically help the chances
of a DJ picking your record up for airplay.
All physical submissions should be addressed as follows:
Bay of Islands Radio
Grenfell Campus – Memorial University of Newfoundland
Attn: Ivan Emke / Music Director
20 University Drive
Corner Brook, NL, Canada
For digital releases, send a download link to your record, preferably archived as a ZIP file
located on an external server such as Dropbox. Attaching your track to the e-mail causes server
space issues for us. All the tracks must have proper metadata (id3 tags) for the artist, album
and track title. Tagging the release year and genre is also nice. All submissions should be sent to
firstname.lastname@example.org with “BOIR MUSIC SUBMISSION” in the subject line.
If you want, also include a one sheet in the envelope or digital archive. A one sheet is an
industry standard that includes the following information on one page: artist name, album title,
record label name, release date, album track list, a couple recommended tracks, tracks
containing obscenities, press quotes and a small bio. It is also very helpful if some of this
information is printed on a small sticker and stuck to the artwork of the CD, as this makes the
information readily available to DJs.
NOTE: MUSIC CONTAINING OBSCENITIES WILL NOT BE PLAYED. IF YOUR ALBUM CONTAINS
OBSCENE TRACKS, PLEASE MAKE NOTE.
