Policy Regarding Music Submissions And Programmer Access

 

  1. Programming decisions and music selections for Entercom stations are made on a non-discriminatory basis.

  2. 94.7 The Link accept new music submissions only digital due to covid. Submit your track/s to submissions@947thelink.com with the subject “Artist Music Submission – Artist Name” in the subject line, where “Artist Name” is your artist name.

    Example Subject Line: Artist Music Submission – John Doe
    Music must be submitted in constant 320 Kbps, .mp3 format with the following metadata tagged to the tracks:

    Artist/Band Name
    Song Title (Song Version) i.e. Clean, Explicit, Instrumental, Acapella, etc
    Album/Single Artwork
    Social Media information

  3. Music submitted must be of broadcast quality.

  4. Music submitted must be properly edited for broadcast. Please note, if any profanity is found in the music, the track will not air until after midnight if 94.7 The Link accepts it.

  5. Music submitted will not be returned.

  6. Radio edits are mandatory.  You may submit other versions of your work, such as Explicit, Instrumental, and Acapella version as well, for distribution to our network of DJs, remixers, and producers, but each submitted work MUST be accompanied by a radio edit.

    All music streamed on 94.7 The Link will be monitored and reported by Digital Radio Tracker, Mediabase, Bmi, Ascap, Sesac, Sound Exchange and Bds. This entitles all artists played on our platform, digital performance royalties. It would be in the artists' best interest to make sure they register their music so that they are able to receive their royalties.

  7. 94.7 The Link is reported to all the major US-based performing rights organizations such as BMI, ASCAP, and SESAC .We are a fully licensed radio station.

Submissions are reviewed weekly for inclusion into our programming by our management team. Although you may submit your music, this DOES NOT GUARANTEE your placement onto our programming. We reserve the right to make final decisions regarding inclusion and/or placement.

If selected for inclusion into our programming or a feature, you will be contacted by one of our team members via email. If we choose to feature your music, it is expected that you will promote yourself, the program, and 94.7 The Link.

NOTE:  With regard to musical work performance rights for our stations, Accurate Advertising Radio/TV holds non-dramatic public performance licenses with ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC via Streamlicensing.com only.  By submitting music for consideration, submitting entities and individuals represent and warrant that submitted music has been registered with one of these three performing rights organizations.  Alternatively, if you are not a member of these organizations, you represent and warrant that you hold these rights personally and grant Accurate Advertising Radio/TV the right to broadcast your material.  In addition, because we stream most of our stations over the internet, by submitting music for consideration, submitting entities and individuals represent and warrant that submitted music has been registered with Streamlicensing.  Alternatively, if you are not a member of Streamlicensing, you represent and warrant that you hold these rights personally and grant Accurate Advertising Radio/TV the right to stream your material on a non-interactive, non-subscription basis.
