We Appreciate Your Work!

We love independent music (and music in general) and listen to everything we receive.  With that said, due to limited volunteer hours and space within the library, we don't keep every album.  A team of volunteers are responsible for listening to the music we receive and make the decision whether it is logged into the system, and/or highlighted for immediate play.  Keep in mind that everything is done by volunteer and may take up to 2 weeks upon receipt for an album to be reviewed.


What we accept:

We do not accept singles and will only receive EP's with a minimum of 3 tracks.  We require a full tracklisting.  We appreciate a short one-sheet describing genre (ya I know, no one likes genres, but they are necessary for the database), release date, and location of the band (city you call home).  We accept all genres but give preference to Can Con (MAPL), and genres we are most likely to play.  This currently includes indie-rock, hard rock/metal, experimental, electronica, dub, folk, roots.  This changes as volunteer programmers come and go, so send it our way even if it falls outside of these genres as we may play it at a later time.

We are currently only accepting digital downloads, so please send the details to music@smithersradio.com.  If you would like to send us a physical that we can use for contests, etc. our address is:

Smithers Community Radio

Tracking requests:

We try to respond to tracking requests, but we do not keep regular hours, nor do we have the resources to respond to all.  You can leave a message at 250-847-8769 with your request or send an email to music@smithersradio.com.  We can tell you if an album has been received, if it was added to our library and if it was highlighted for immediate play.  This does not ensure play.  We track the top 30 most played albums every week at http://www.earshot-online.com/charts/cick.cfm. 


Other Suggestions:

The National Community Radio Association has created a cheatsheat on submitting music to the Campus/Community Radio Sector. Check it out https://earshot-distro.ca/?page_id=1301


Thanks for your work.  Keep it up.
