Submit Your Song For Airplay on IAC.FM - GET YOUR MUSIC PLAYED ON THE RADIO

Radio airplay is not only excellent publicity for any band or artist, but it also introduces your music to new audiences and can truly break you through to the next level. 

You must be a “Caribbean” artist.

Thank you for inquiring about how to get your music played on IAC.FM. We hand pick the artists who are part of IAC.FM. We’re always listening to new music. At IAC.FM, we endeavor to support the music of Caribbean/Island region – those artists who write, record, and promote their own music independently of major record labels. We consider it a real honor to provide an online radio stream where the music and the life stories of Caribbean Artists can be heard locally and globally. To help us further that goal, we invite Caribbean artists to submit their music for possible play on our station.

There are some criteria, and ultimately we will decide if your music fits our format and criteria closely enough to make it on the air. Please understand, though, that we do not judge your music and if you are not selected for airplay on IAC.FM, it doesn’t mean we don’t like your music – we love all music! But we do have requirments we closely follow. We will bend and work with you as best we can to get you on the air if at all possible.

**PLEASE READ CAREFULLY OR YOUR SUBMISSION MAY BE DISREGARDED** It is important for the guidelines listed below to be followed. These guidelines are designed to quickly get your music on the air and maintain accuracy, not to be a burden.

Here are the guidelines….

MOST IMPORTANT REQUIREMENT is that SUBMISSIONS NEED TO BE FORMATTED CORRECTLY 

+  MP3’s only!   No! ~ WMA, MP2, WAV, OGG, M4A, ACC 

+  Please name each audio file submitted as:  “Artist Name – Song Title”.mp3

+  Each song submitted is encoded in mp3 format at 128-kbps. (Our station streams at 128-kbps and do not require higher bitrates. Higher bitrates use valuable disk space.)

+  The song is a clean version (if possible). If the song contains vulgar language by FCC standards, then make sure to mark the song as “dirty” or “unedited.” Such songs may qualify for late-night programming. 

+  Fill out the ID3 tag on the mp3 (where you put the song name, artist name, album name, year, genre, album cover art, etc.). If you don’t know how to do this, please include the band name, album name, and track-listing for the songs, within your e-mail, or in the zip folder, or in the Dropbox folder. Also, include a high resolution .jpg of the album cover artwork.

+  When you upload your songs to our website, be sure to upload up to properly name your post as follow:

+  Please make sure that your user account contain a short bio as follow:

 

+  DO NOT SEND MUSIC VIA EMAIL.
