Getting your music ready for radio

There are a few things you should do to have your music radio ready.
First of all when you record your album you should always choose a lead single that you want to send to radio. Do not send program directors and Deejays you whole album whether by mail or email. Radio personnel and Disc Jockeys are busy people and they just want your hottest song.
Whatever song you choose make sure you have a dirty version, a clean version and an instrumental that you will give them. Whether it is all burned on CD and mailed to program directors or you can zip it all in a file and email the mp3 files to Deejays. Never have your lead single be over 3 minutes and 50 seconds long. Most radio stations are not gonna play a 5 minute song so keep it short and sweet. As mention before either you will send a CD to program directors or you will mail an mp3 to internet radio Deejays. Sending a CD is usually for traditional radio so spend some money and get printing on the CD so it looks professional. Those will be CD's strictly for sending to radio with the "lead single" clean and dirty versions and the instrumental. Include a 8 by 10 picture and a short bio. When sending an mp3 to internet radio stations or Deejays you should also include a jpeg of you or your band and a short bio in the email. Follow these basic rules and you will be viewed more as a pro.
