ISRC stands for International Standard Recording Code and are used as a digital fingerprint in order to uniquely identify sound recordings. If you are submitting music for digital sales or airplay, you more than likely need an ISRC code.
Each code is a unique 12-digit number and codes can be obtained from 2 basic sources, directly from the RIAA or from an ISRC manager. Indie Artists Alliance (Media Media Inc.) is an official ISRC manager. – ISRC codes are $2.50 each.
College Radio Guide with contact information.
Indie Artists Alliance has developed the most up to date listing of U.S. College Radio Stations.
It’s a fact! Without the backing of a major record label, most Indie artists will never get airplay on mainstream radio. Why? Because in the big business of music, cash (for promotion) is king and struggling performers usually don’t have much.
That doesn’t mean there are no other exposure opportunities out there. One avenue for Indie artists to get their tunes spun on the airwaves is college radio. There are hundreds of these stations in the United States looking for quality music to broadcast — in all genres. That doesn’t mean they will play everything that lands on their desk, but as a rule, college radio stations are open to giving new songs a chance if they believe they will appeal to their audience.
We list stations, detailed up-to-date information, as well as submission and genre information.
Radio play means more CD, digital media sales and gigs…this guide will help you to locate radio stations looking to play YOUR music.
