CKXU is inviting you to take part in another edition of our local releases mail-out. Recently release an album? Are you about to cut an ep? Have friends who have? Then check this out and forward it on to anyone you think might be interested or have them get in touch with me. Note that our next mail-out will take place in late spring or early summer.

The mail-out will ship local releases to Canadian campus-community radio stations like ours. Our mail-out can reach up to 50 campus-community stations across Canada. We will do this at a very low cost of $1 per CD (PLEASE in a sum of either 30 or 50). That’s only $30 or $50 to get local tunes all across Canada! Doing a mail-out can possibly get your music charting on the national-campus-community-radio charts!! All payments go towards the postage and packaging costs. If interested in participating, please have the following prepared:

  • Have 30 or 50 copies of a most recent release (within the last 6 months). Burning your own copies is fine, but test them to make sure they work!
  • Highly recommended a respective 30 or 50 copies of a one-sheet. The one-sheet should include important information about the artist and the album you are sending. Search online for “one-sheet templates” if you’d like a more specific idea. If you would like us to make photocopies of this for you, please add $5 to your total.
    • Limit the following info to one piece of paper:
      • a) Artist name
      • b) Album title
      • c) Album release date
      • d) Contact info / Website / Social media links
      • e) Genre and name a few other artists that you sound like
      • f) Put a note of any songs with offensive language or content that might need a warning before playing on the radio.
      • g) Brief artist bio / Additional info about this release
      • h) *OPTIONAL* a photo of the artist and the album cover is a nice visual to add…
  • Bring $30 to send 30 copies of your album or $50 to send 50 (plus the $5 for printing costs if needed) to CKXU. Someone should be at CKXU on most weekday afternoons and evenings. Please get in touch for other arrangements.
  • Have this to CKXU by Wednesday, February 7th at the latest! We will aim to send these packs out by Friday of that week.
