Submit Your Music For Air-Play
This is the greenest and most direct way to submit music. MP3s are preferred, but WAVs are fine too. Please include a streaming link and information about the artist. We’re most interested in local and Canadian releases but we do our best to listen to everything. Email your submissions to Jasper Sloan Yip at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE do not send attachments – free services such as Dropbox or WeTransfer work great!
We prefer digital submissions (unless it’s vinyl!), but you are welcome to submit your physical release with a onesheet. Please avoid excess packaging. Address your mail to:
Jasper Sloan Yip – Music Dept.
LL500 – 6133 University Blvd.
Submitting to that Show You Love
