How do I sign up for commercial radio play?

Tony, LA

Before sending your music out, make sure that you 100% believe it’s commercial radio material. Listen to the radio stations that you want your music to be on. If you feel that your music fits in, by all means send it out. If you don’t, keep making songs until you get that commercial radio hit. Additionally, you would have to remove all and any explicit content.
