For you to take your music career to the next level, one of the things you need to do is to ensure that your songs get played frequently on public radio stations. The moment your songs start enjoying such airplay on public radio stations, people will start regarding you as a ‘popular musician’. And once that happens, your music career will almost certainly advance to the next level. But as many people in the music industry will aver, getting your songs to be frequently played on public radio stations is not so easy. There are, however, some simple measures you can take, to greatly increase the chances of your songs getting played frequently on the public radio stations.
Firstly, if you want the public radio stations to be playing your songs frequently, you need to ensure that your lyrics are not too controversial.
Secondly, if you want the public radio stations to be playing your songs frequently, you need to ensure that the songs are based on truly catchy tunes.
Thirdly, if you want the public radio stations to be playing your songs frequently, you need to ensure that you record your songs in good quality studios. Nowadays, pretty much anyone with a computer and a microphone can go to Sunbiz.org and register a company specializing in music recordings. The music recording company registered on the Sunbiz website would be as good as any other, legally speaking. But in the absence of proper recording equipment, the recordings coming from such a studio would tend to be of a low quality – which the public radio stations may be reluctant to play.
It helps too, if you try to make connections with the people who control the music industry. These are actually the folks who (behind the scenes, and often in under-hand ways) determine the playlists for the public radio stations. The moment you get into their good books, you will start enjoying lots of airplay. And for you to get connected to these ‘movers and shakers’ of the music industry, it may be necessary for you to ensure that you work with the top producers.
