Get played on AND Radio
3 ways to get your music played on AND Radio
1: For Free on "Black on Track" new music & unsigned artist showcase show.
2: By winning a studio session for our Live Lounge (Contact Black Room Studios https://www.blackroomstudios.co.uk)
3: By being accepted for the General Playlist - see cost packages.
To be included on the General Playlist will cost the Early Bird rate of just £25 per track accepted (Rate will be reappraised for 2021.
But, as with all AND products since 2001, those that help me at the start, will continue to get a preferential rate … forever).
The cost covers the entire year or part of. Which means your track will be to be played on the General Playlist and included in other genre appropriate playlists and features until December 31 of that year. Yep … for the best value … do it now!
For a track to be entered onto the playlist, it first needs to be sent for consideration. If I think the track suits AND RADIO we’ll get back to you to start the ball rolling.
COMING SOON! In addition, play-listed artists will have access to our shop to offer paid downloads.
Why are we charging to be on the station?
We’re not. We’ll happily include original and unsigned tracks we like on the twice weekly Black On Track show.
We’re charging to be on the playlist. The choice is yours. To be on twice for free, or regularly, with The Beatles, Coldplay, Lady Gaga and Imagine Dragons etc.
AND … as most of the of the station’s cost is to allow AND RADIO to play The Beatles, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Lady Gaga and all the world’s other great artists etc, it seems only fair to ask aspiring artists that will benefit from the association … to chip in.
Don’t want to pay £25 to promote your masterpiece and think we should be biting your arm off to play it for free?
After all, you’re on free website playlists all over the world and been #1 in their local charts for the last 2 years. Then, as someone that’s been in the music business for most of my adult life, I’d question if you were making the right career choice. In fact let me help you. You’re not.
But if you are serious, there really is only one choice. You need your music to be heard regularly, so you need to get it on decent playlists.
Record labels and promoters pay a small fortune (Sometimes a large fortune. Want to see how Pitbull, Snoopdog, Joss Stone and others get on radio playlists? Click here for some free advice and costs: www.pluggers.com/costs) to get their artists on radio playlists. We’re giving you the same power as a record company for just £25!
The choice to pay or not is of course yours. I’m not going to get rich from a few dozen £25’s
But by paying just a little, it shows me you’re serious. I’m serious. I’ve stuck my neck out and my money, to create this showcase opportunity platform for you.
So I don’t think it’s unreasonable of me to expect you to show me you’re serious too.

I'm constantly amazed at how many artists get their tracks on playlists and then don't tell their fans they're there ... relying just on the playlist to promote them.
SKY Sports doesn't simply rely on being on the TV does it? No ... it advertises! So do it!
