The Gospel Radio Information System

As you are aware, independent record companies and recording artists must service radio stations with their gospel recording projects.Air-play on radio stations plays a major role in exposing a project to the public, CD sales, and performance royalties.

However, as most independents have experienced, there is some key information you must have when attempting to get radio airplay. You must know the radio stations that play gospel music, and to whom at the station to send your recording project. You need to know the Program Director, Music Director,  On-air Personalities, Addresses and Phone numbers at a minimum. Email addresses and web site addresses will also be helpful in communicating with the station.  It is also important to have the ability to keep your information current. Radio station addresses, phone numbers, and on-air personalities change frequently. Sending out CD’s to wrong addresses
can be costly.

It takes a significant effort to service radio stations. To service a station you need to package your product professionally, inserting a CD and cover letter. You also need to address the package. Addressing packages and/or letters by hand can be very tedious, cumbersome, and time consuming,  particularly when you consider that you will need to send out several hundred CD’s for each product release to get national exposure and air-play.  In addition, to  follow-up with stations will require that you maintain records of stations serviced for tracking purposes.

You as an independent artist/record label can hire someone to do all of the above for you, or you have the option of doing it yourself.  Many independents attempt to do this themselves by referencing certain magazines  or web sites to obtain radio station information. However, often times the information is limited and/or not current. Even if current, it’s not available in a system where it can easily be used for mailing purposes. Also, to hire a servicing/tracking company
can often exceed the budget of independents.

To help independents, we developed the Christian Radio Information System. This system was specifically designed to assist independent record companies, recording artists, and magazine publishers with the task of servicing gospel radio stations with their products. As we are also an independent record label, we are familiar with all of the above tasks, and decided to develop this system to simplify the task, and reduce the cost of servicing radio stations.
