Submit Your Music For Air-Play

Digital Submissions

Physical Submissions

This is the greenest and most direct way to submit music. MP3s are preferred. 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 Dora Dubber at music@citr.ca.

PLEASE do not send attachments – free services like Dropbox or WeTransfer work great!

We prefer digital submissions (unless it’s vinyl!), but you are welcome to submit your physical release with a one sheet. Please avoid excess packaging.

Address your mail to:

Dora Dubber – Music Dept.
CiTR Radio
LL500 – 6133 University Blvd.
Vancouver, BC
V6T 1Z1

Submitting to that Show You Love

Check out our programming to target specific hosts. Contact hosts through the email listed on their show page.

 

Perform Live on Air

CiTR’s station is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More information here.

After reopening, we’d love to host any touring musicians and/or local favs on 101.9FM for a live broadcast set! Email Dora Dubber at music@citr.ca and we’ll look over your request. You are welcome to contact shows directly as well. Again, the station is closed until further notice.

 

Pitch a Story for the Radio

Check out our music and spoken word programming to target specific hosts. CiTR 101.9FM does not tell our programmers what to feature, so reaching out to hosts directly is your best bet. Contact hosts directly though the email on listed their show page if you would like to discuss a particular issue or upcoming project on air.

You can also contact music@citr.ca or programming@citr.ca, and we’ll help you get in touch with the correct show host.

Want to curate your own playlist or have an idea for on-air content but don’t know where to start? Check out our Get Involved page to see how you can make radio for CiTR 101.9FM.
