If you are a musician who is local to the West Country and you would like to get your music played on the radio, at FromeFM we are striving to support local musicians of all genres; we may have even played your music already!. Music Eye Radio is our flagship show for showcasing up and coming music from ‘Frome and beyond’, and any local music submissions will be dutifully forwarded to the presenters of that show.
We also have a number of hours each day which are not filled by specific programmes, but which feature ‘random playout’ of music tracks from our database. A certain number of hours of this random playout are now going to be attributed to local and upcoming musicians, which means your tracks can receive many more plays on air.
Introduce your own track
When you submit music to us, just include a short piece of audio anywhere between thirty seconds and a couple of minutes, introducing yourself, your band, your music or your track, and don’t forget to say how people can find out more about you: your social media etc. You can produce a ‘professional’ intro with background music if you wish, but a simple voice recording done on your phone will be fine. mp3 or .wav files are preferable but we can work with almost any format. You can send in as many submissions as you want, but we will have to limit the amount of tracks that are programmed by a single artist or band at any one time. Most importantly please make sure your introduction is radio friendly: we are Ofcom regulated.
We look forward to hearing and playing more local music!
To submit music, or ask any further questions, please email us at email@example.com.
