CKXU is organizing another mail-out of new local artist releases to NCRA member radio stations across Canada. If you or any of your friends are about to or just recently cut a fine EP or LP of original tunes, forward them this email or have them get in touch with me too! Note that our next mail-out will take place this summer.

Are you interested in having your album shipped out by us along with some other great local music? We will do this for you at a very low cost of $1 per CD (PLEASE in a sum of either 30 or 50) you wish to send. That’s only $30 or $50 to get your tunes all across Canada?!?!? This cost will go towards the postage and packaging costs. Please have the following prepared:

  • Have 30 or 50 copies (burning your own copies is fine, but test them to make sure they work!) of your upcoming or most recent release (from within the past 6 months or so ideally to ensure other stations will play them)
  • Have a respective 30 or 50 copies of a one-sheet (click to read more if you’re unsure what I’m saying), with important information about the album you are sending. Search online for one-sheet templates if you’d like a better 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 bands that you sound like
      • f) Put a note that lists any songs with dirty words or content that others might need warning about before playing on radio
      • g) Brief band 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 if needed) by CKXU. There is usually someone around most business hours of the day, but please get in touch if you need to come at a wonky hour.
  • Please have all this to CKXU by Wednesday, April 19th at the latest! We will aim to send these packs out by April 21st.
