Sending music to KBCS

At KBCS we are driven to discover new sounds and look forward to considering your project for airplay.

Music genres featured on KBCS include: Pop/rock/alternative/indie, folk, bluegrass, country, blues, soul/R&B/funk, hip-hop, worldbeat, jazz, EDM, reggae, Latin alternative, and international (Brazilian, African, South Pacific/Hawaiian, Celtic…).

Metal/hard rock, classical, soundtrack scores, punk, and industrial music recordings are less likely to be added.

Submission guidelines:

  • full-length CD studio recordings are welcome. Note: due to the remote recording of programs please do not send multiple copies of your album to the station as it is difficult to get the physical copies to the DJs. Downloadable files are preferred.
  • downloadable files are accepted. WAV is preferred. Links to streamable files are appreciated, but please include a download option with the streaming link to keep email correspondence to a minimum.
  • all submissions must contain a track list with times, and all tracks with lyrics that contain potential FCC violations need to be noted.
  • please note: most of the DJs at KBCS are dedicated volunteers who are currently recording their programs remotely due to the pandemic. If you want your music reviewed and potentially played on a show we will need downloadable files of your music. These files may be shared with the KBCS DJs.

CDs will not be returned.
