We love getting new music in the mail. Especially good new music. So if you have some good new music, please send it our way. Just mail it to the following address:
102 Tate Student Center
Athens, GA 30602
If you are an artist from Georgia, be sure to address the package to the Local Music Director. We currently accept EPs and LPs on cassette, CD or vinyl.
We do not accept electronic submissions at this time for airplay OR review, nor do we accept singles or samplers of any type. However, feel free to contact the Local Music Director about your Bandcamp or online recordings.
For everyone else, please direct the package to the Music Directors’ attention (as opposed to, say, the programming director’s, which you might do if you were sending your music in to another station). If you want to submit something, mail it in to the address above. We hardly have enough time to listen to the CDs which get mailed to us, so we will delete any MP3s you e-mail to us.
Here are some general submission guidelines
Take a good, honest look at the kind of music we play before submitting — our top 30 charts and playlists are on the website. We don’t want your low-budget attempt at sounding like you’re on a major label — we want strong, creative voices that will be in conversation with the other voices we present. With that said, we don’t shy away from any genres/conventions/traditions/formats/etc — it’s just that if you have no awareness of any of the music we spin, you’re not likely to make music that will find a home here.
Please don’t call us to let us know that you’d like to send us an album — just go ahead and put it in the mail, and send us an email in a few weeks and we’ll let you know what we did with it.
99.99% of the time, we do not play samplers from upcoming full-lengths — we want the entire album! The only time we make exceptions is when you’re sending us a sampler for a huge boxset.
Sometimes a little sheet of info is nice, but we don’t really need any ten page bios, pocket folders, or glossy 8×10s — in fact, we generally assume that albums that come with those sorts of unnecessary materials suck. Save postage, save trees, save our time.
Give us a solid three weeks before trying to track a record. A quick email will suffice — we definitely prefer it to a phone call.
If you do decide to call, be sure not to call the DJ booth or any other station phone number. The music office can be reached at 706-542-8466. If you call our DJs, they will hang up on you.
If you’re sending us your music because you’re coming through Athens and would like to promote your show, send your album in AT LEAST a month beforehand so that we’ll have time to give it a fair listen and decide if it’s something we’re interested in playing. Just because you’re playing in Athens does not mean that your music is for WUOG.
If you have any other questions, please contact the Music Director.
