Music & Arts news from Southern New Brunswick

Local 107.3 want to spread your music nationwide!

From the desk of programming director Jud Crandall:

From June 12 through 17, the staff of your community voice, Local 107.3fm, will be attending the annual National Campus/Community Radio Association conference in Kingston, Ontario, and we want to take YOU, the musicians of the Greater Saint John area!

Local 107.3fm is inviting local musicians to submit their music to us to take to Kingston to distribute to our fellow community radio delegates from across Canada. All you have to do is supply us with as many hard copy incarnations of your music as possible, and we will take care of the rest. With upwards of 50-80 NCRA member stations slated to be in attendance, you will have to cough up a lot of tunes, but you get instant national (and possibly even international) distribution.

Before end of business Friday, June 8, 2012, you must deliver to the Local 107.3fm offices, your music in any of the following formats:

~ CD
~ Cassette
~ Vinyl
~ Promo cards/flyers with download sites, codes, etc., indicated
~ Any other format feasible for broadcast airplay (i.e., don’t worry about being clever and giving us music on VHS or some such thing, because you will be hard-pressed to find a station with a VCR in their broadcast booth)

Your submissions must be delivered to our office in the TJC Student Centre on the UNBSJ campus, and they must be contained in some kind of box, bag, envelope, etc., for practical transportation. If any alternate plans need to be made, please e-mail, but we will be relying upon you to handle as much of the delivery leg-work as possible and we will take it from there to the nation.

You can also snail-mail submission to Local-fm at the following address:

100 Tucker Park Rd.
Thomas J Condon Building RM 235, UNBSJ
Saint John, NB Canada

We reserve the right to leave behind music that cannot be transported due to complications arising from any of the above factors. We will also not be responsible for delivery to specific stations or regions if you can only supply limited quantities.

We look forward to spreading the good gospel of our fine Port City musicians, so please take us up on this and fill our boots with loads of local goodness!
