It’s a BIG world out there!
How, you ask? You read articles that give “the truth”- that say it can’t be done-Clear Channels owns the world- right?- WRONG!
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 Promotions has over 27,000 radio stations and125,000+stations with syndicated networks and station affiliates in every genre in 60 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. 98% 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 ECMA, BBC, Sirius, I-Heart and many others.
So, who is Musik Radio Promotions?
Musicians. Musicians that have toured the world extensively as members of internationally recognized artists.
We realized radio in the US is controlled by major labels known 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.
How are we doing it differently?
Musik Radio Promotions has developed a program 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 music. 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 8 weeks to a maximum of over a year for some artists.

Benefits to the Indie Artist:
- Collect 100% of airplay royalties around the world. A plus-outside the US, royalties are considerably higher.
- 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.
How does an artist get started?
Experience has proved to the team at Musik Radio Promotions what radio will play and will not play. Production of the track is “key”.
We want your music – heard AND played.
