Thank you for inquiring about submissions to Echoes.
SUBMITTING MUSIC TO Echoes
Echoes is a two hour, daily music show heard on over 110 public radio stations in the United States.
Artists and music are the lifeblood of Echoes and we are always seeking out new material to feed the beast. We welcome your submissions to Echoes.
We strongly encourage you to send your material on Compact Disc. If your music is only available via digital download, give us a download link, but you are much less likely to get lost in the shuffle if you send us a physical disc. Send downloads to firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not have the resources to reply to emails regarding your submission.
Keep in mind that not all music is appropriate for Echoes. You may have created a masterpiece, but it may not fit with the Echoes sound or mission. Don’t take it personally.
We receive over 2500 submissions each year; it may take awhile for us to review your submission. For an idea of what we play, check out our broadcasts, our podcasts and our playlists. We cannot reply to individual emails.
You may call about the disposition of your material. John takes tracking calls every Thursday, 12PM-4PM ET at 610-827-7040. Our daily playlists are available through our website. If your recording doesn’t appear there, chances are it is not being played or we haven’t gotten to it yet.
Echodisc, the mail-order arm of Echoes, only sells Echoes-produced Living Room Concert CDs. We direct our listeners to Amazon.com, CDBaby.com and iTunes to purchase CDs or songs heard on the program. Listing your albums with them is NOT a prerequisite for Echoes airplay, but it’s just an easy way for you to benefit from Echoes airplay by making it easier for Echoes listeners to buy your CDs.
Send one copy only of the FULL PRODUCTION RELEASE of your CD. We will accept slim packs or cardboard sleeves, but keep in mind that a full jewel box or digipak with a readable spine is less likely to get lost among the many submissions we receive. Include your contact name, address, phone, and e-mail, and send to:
P.O. Box 256
Chester Springs, PA 19425
Echoes cannot return any material that is submitted.
