1) I have a CD, how do I go about submitting it for airplay?
We receive literally hundreds of CDs each week from artists in many different genres. Our music director and assistant MD’s try to listen to each one, whether it’s from a major label or produced at home. There is no guarantee your CD will get airplay, but here’s the proper procedure you need to follow. Send a copy (one cd is enough) to the following address:
Mail Stop SA 119
5201 N. Maple
Fresno, CA 93740
Please indicate what genre the music is on the package, so we can direct it to the right person. Here is further contact information for KFSR’s music staff.
DISCLAIMER: Submissions to the station
KFSR accepts all solicited or unsolicited material as a public service to the community. KFSR is not obligated to play the music or performances, or arrange any personal performances or interviews at local venues or on the air. All tapes, CDs, records, press materials, or other items or media submitted to the station, including photos, are the property of KFSR and will not be returned. Artists submitting material to the station which is not registered with music publishing firms, ASCAP, SESAC, or BMI waive all rights to any royalties. While KFSR accepts all materials for consideration, the decision to air music is at the discretion of station management. By submitting music or other materials to the station, you agree to the terms above.
2) I have an event for a non-profit organization, and I’d like to get a PSA (public service announcement) – what should I do?
You can email your announcements to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax them to 559-278-6985. We unfortunately cannot honor every request for a PSA due to volume, but we run several PSAs every day on the air.
3) I’d like to listen online to KFSR – how do I do that and what do I need?
Our audio stream uses the latest in MP3 streaming technology and is compatible with a wide variety of software and media players. Platforms supported include Windows, Mac and Linux. You can use Real Audio, iTunes, Winamp, Windows Media Player and others. More information is available on our Audio Page. KFSR’s streaming audio is offered free of charge, and sometimes connections can exceed our existing bandwith. If you encounter problems, email us at email@example.com.
