KXCI Music Submission Recommendations from Music Director Duncan Hudson
KXCI receives about 200+ albums every week which must all be reviewed by our volunteers before they receive airplay to determine genre, quality, and possible FCC language violations.
Currently, mailing Cds physically to the station is really still the best way to submit music to KXCI.

When sending a cd or digital submission, it is a good idea to let us know what the musical genre is for your release and/or other artists that match your style. Also make a note of any questionable language/bad words.
You may also send links to digital submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. A cadre of volunteers have access to this email and review some of these submissions.
We are delighted to receive local music to review for possible airplay. Locals Only on Monday night is strictly local music program but there are many other shows that feature local music as well. CDs can be sent/dropped off at the address above. Mark the package attn: Locals Only and mention musical style, any upcoming gigs and any questionable language/bad words. You may also wish to share two, three or more copies if possible for different djs and a copy for the station. If the release isn’t in regular packaging, it is helpful if at least one of the cds is in a jewel case with a readable spine so that our programmers can notice it on the shelf. Remember to include your contact information and good luck!
Home Stretch host Hannah considers digital music. You can let her know about your work at Hannah@kxci.org.
Unfortunately, we currently don’t have the capacity to review or comment upon every release that we receive, nor can we integrate every submission into our collection.
You can always check to see if your song has been played by searching our playlists.
