Music Submission Policy

KRXQ / 98 Rock Policy Regarding Music Submissions and Programmer Access

1.  Programming decisions and music selections are made on a non-discriminatory basis.

2.  a.  Materials for general airplay should be sent to the attention of Pat Martin or Jim Fox, 5345 Madison Ave., Sacramento, CA  95841.

      b   Materials for airplay during Local Licks should be sent to the attention of Andy Hawk, host, Local Licks, 5345 Madison Ave., Sacramento, CA  95841.


3.  KRXQ accepts new music submissions via CD, mp3 or link to download WAV files.   Other forms of electronic media may also be accepted.   Considerations such as email server space, virus scanning software, and hardware limitations may negatively impact our ability to accept music submissions through these alternative means.  Accordingly, KRXQ suggests submission of music via CD when possible.

4.  Music submitted must be of broadcast quality.

5.  Music submitted must be properly edited for broadcast, including the exclusion of defamatory, profane, indecent or obscene material.

6.  Music submitted will not be returned.

7.  KRXQ does not sell or barter access to its programmers.

8.  Pat Martin has established specific days and times for accepting phone calls from artists and labels:  Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays between 3:00 PM & 5:00 PM PST.  Artists and labels are encouraged to respect this window.  Please be aware that our programmers have many competing demands on their time and thus may not be able to return all calls or respond to all correspondence, particularly within time periods artists or labels might desire.

NOTE:  With regard to musical work performance rights, KRXQ holds non-dramatic public performance licenses with ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC only.  By submitting music for consideration, submitting entities and individuals represent and warrant that submitted music has been registered with one of these three performing rights organizations.  Alternatively, if you are not a member of these organizations, you represent and warrant that you hold these rights personally and grant KRXQ the right to broadcast your material.  In addition, because we stream KRXQ over the internet, by submitting music for consideration, submitting entities and individuals represent and warrant that submitted music has been registered with SoundExchange.  Alternatively, if you are not a member of SoundExchange, you represent and warrant that you hold these rights personally and grant KRXQ the right to stream your material on a non-interactive, non-subscription basis.
