ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
College and community radio stations are a great resource for artists looking to find champions in new markets. DJs at these stations have unprecedented freedom when it comes to choosing what they spin. How do emerging artists and industry get a shot at being added to rotation at these stations? From submitting materials and one-sheets, to follow-ups and tracking spins, this workshop will cover it all.
