Your music on the show?
UPDATE: Please be aware that while the weekly Suffolk ‘n’ Cool show is on hiatus I won’t be playing any submitted tracks (or any others for that matter!) However, you are welcome to continue to submit but please don’t expect an immediate response.
I use a few really good and trusted sources of podsafe music but I’m always interested to hear from artists who don’t have arrangements with publicists or albums on Jamendo and the like.
If you have a track that you’d like to submit to the show, I’ll be pleased to have a listen, but “Hold on there youngster”
Of course, try as I may, I simply can’t fit all the great music I’d like to play each week into the 45 minute Suffolk ‘n Cool show so there is no way I can guarantee that I’ll play your submission.
In fact I can’t even promise to send you feedback on your track because I simply don’t have time. However, if I think it might be better suited to a different podcast, I’ll forward it to them, if that’s OK.
Please complete the submission form below before and upload your track. This is essential so that I know what I have, from whom and where I can contact you. The bottom line is: No form, no play – guaranteed!
By submitting a track you are stating that:
- You own the copyright on the track or are using the provisions of a Creative Commons License associated with the track
- Works submitted contain no recordings, lyrics, copyrights, or other elements that are the copyright of any other artist, except under the limited provisions of the Creative Commons License Agreement
- Despite any recording contracts with RIAA, ASCAP, or BMI, or other recording industry entity, the artist or agent submitting retains ownership of the works, and is free to distribute, broadcast, license or sell these works at their discretion.
- You agree to its being used in Suffolk ‘n’ Cool under the terms of our Creative Commons licence * (not for profit, attribution will be given and we won’t mess with it).
Phew! That’s about it really.
In essence, you are granting Suffolk’n’Cool a licence, or permission, to play your track(s), but you still own the work.
What’s more, the rights to use your music granted to Suffolk’n’Cool are non-exclusive which means that you can continue to use your work as you like including the ability to also allow others to use it.
We sometimes find opportunities to promote your music through other reputable podcasts that have achieved membership of the Association of Music Podcasting (AMP). If you don’t want us to offer this service, please let us know.
Once a show is recorded, it is very difficult and costly to re-edit it to remove specific tracks. Please be aware that by uploading a track, you have given permission for us to play it and that permission cannot be revoked, the episodes containing your track will remain permanently available to listeners.
In all this please remember that our purpose is to promote and help you sell your music. Full attribution is given in the show and in the associated shownotes which include live web-links to your site.
Only a small proportion of submitted music gets a play on Suffolk’n’Cool and, trust me, if you get through the selection process, you can be sure we really want you to succeed and will do what we can to help you by getting listeners to your site.
There, that’s the terms and conditions taken care of. If you have any queries please get in touch.
It would be really helpful. No, more than that, it’s essential, that you title your track. It is really, really helpful if you complete all the relevant ID3 tags on your MP3 file so that I know, at a glance, what it is and who it is from.
HINT: You can do all that in iTunes if you select the track and click File>Get info. In Windows, right click on the file and select “Properties”. There’s a very helpful blog post on MP3 tags at Sentric
ANOTHER HINT: If you’ve got an audio comment or a station ID for me – you can send it as an MP3 via the same process.
We take musician’s rights very seriously so we need to know that you own the copyright or have the right to submit your music to the show.
In look forward to hearing your work and hope that I’ll be able to help you promote it.
