Sending music to KBCS
At KBCS we are driven to discover new sounds and look forward to considering your project for airplay.
Music genres featured on KBCS include: Pop/rock/alternative/indie, folk, bluegrass, country, blues, soul/R&B/funk, hip-hop, worldbeat, jazz, EDM, reggae, Latin alternative, and international (Brazilian, African, East Asian, South Pacific/Hawaiian, Celtic…). Metal/hard rock, classical, soundtrack scores, punk, and industrial music recordings are less likely to be added.
- full-length CD studio recordings are preferred
- mp3 submissions, with streaming links, are accepted by email
- all submissions must contain a track list, and all tracks with lyrics that contain FCC violations need to be noted.
Submissions will not be returned.
New adds are reported weekly here, along with our weekly Top 30.
We make a sincere effort to audition everything we receive. To check on the status of the release with KBCS, review our weekly add list. If a release has not made the add list within 30 days of receipt, KBCS passed on it.
Music Department tracking hours are Thursdays from 11:30a-2:30pm PT.
KBCS reports to the following charts:
- CMJ Top 30, RPM, New World and Jazz
- Americana Music Association
