Musik Radio Promotions has over 75,000 radio stations and 250,000 stations with syndicated networks and station affiliates in every genre in 80 countries. We literally have just about every radio station in the US, UK, Australasia, Ireland, Scotland, and thousands of stations in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. 93% of our stations are FM stations. We cover most Billboard, Cashbox and many other reporting stations and charts around the world. We promote to most major networks including BBC, Sirius, I-Heart and many others. We have charted artists in the top 10 in many charts around the world.
So, who is Musik and Film?
Most of the principals and associates at Musik and Film and Musik Radio Promotions are musicians and have toured the world extensively as members of internationally recognized artists.
We realized that radio in the US is controlled by major labels as “Gatekeepers” , meaning Major US radio corporations that positioned themselves as the “Gatekeepers” . They control almost 75% of the US radio market. This left 25% of possible stations within the US that would consider playing an Indie artist’s music. It’s a big world out there and we found out if you can get enough airplay outside of the US, it follows that the US market is then forced to listen and be receptive to playing your music.
Radio Promotion was done for decades regionally. Meaning radio promotion companies charged a fee usually starting at $2500 USD and up to mail your music to a few hundred radio stations in a specific genre and then call them to urge them to play you. But it’s no longer a regional market – it’s a World Market.
As such, we started calling radio programmers around the world. We promised them that we would never send more than 4 artists in any one genre in any one week. We also promised them that we would be selective and only send the best artists and not send them anything that would not stand up to any other major artist. Radio in turn promised us they would listen.
So, what does this mean for you – the artist?
Radio outside of the US works differently. The rest of the world for the most part does not have a top 30 that they play over and over. They have what they call “Radio Presenters” . These presenters each develop their own play lists based on what the audience wants to hear. And most stations outside the US are not one specific genre. Most stations play a variety of music and have shows that feature 2 to 4 hours of rock, then pop, then country and every other genre.
Musik Radio has developed its own software that will deliver a high quality DPK to radio PDs. The DPK includes the artist’s promo picture, press quotes, web and social links, bios and of course their music. The DPK is created by us and then approved by the artist. Once approved, we send the DPK to radio programmers all over the world. Radio can stream and listen and then decide if they want to download it for airplay. We provide weekly reporting to every artist for the life of the single, which has ranged from a minimum of 6 weeks to a maximum of over a year for some artists.
Benefits to the Indie Artist:
- Collect 100% of airplay royalties around the world.
- Touring, it is impossible to successfully tour unless people know who you are. Use the radio airplay and charts to successfully tour any geographical area.
Costs? We design packages for the artist based on a single or multiple tracks. We can also add old fashioned radio calls to radio programmers urging them to listen and play your music. All packages include a world press release and promotion.
