We hand pick the artists and we’re always listening to new music. At Wild Hog Radio, we endeavor to support the music of Indie artists of the Midwest – 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 Indie Artists can be heard locally and globally. To help us further that goal, we invite Indie 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 Wild Hog Radio, it doesn’t mean we don’t like your music – we love all music! But we do have requirements we closely follow. We will bend and work with you as best we can to get you on the air if at all possible.
Here are the guidelines….
+ MP3’s only! < No! ~ WMA, MP2, WAV, OGG, M4A, ACC>
+ Absolutely no hip-hop or rap. This is a Rock n' Roll Station with a mix of County and Oldies.
+ 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 a steady 128-kbps and does 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. Also, include a high resolution .jpg or .png of the album cover artwork.
+ Please include a short bio
*Please include a band bio and link to your website(s). By submitting music for consideration to Wild Hog Radio, and in exchange for publicity and promotion, you grant Wild Hog Radio royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual right and license throughout the world to broadcast and transmit your music on all Wild Hog Radio properties; including, but not limited to Wild Hog Radio and the WildHogRadio.com internet radio station.*
**We are not obligated to place your music on our station. We are not obligated to return any correspondence. We reserve the right to reject any music not meeting our submission/editorial standards. If you feel that our submission guidelines are too stringent, you agree to not submit music to our station. You agree that you are a legally authorized representative of the band/artist’s music that you are submitting and that you have permission to submit music on behalf of the band/artist.**
