KXCI Music Submission Recommendations from Music Director Duncan Hudson
Congratulations on your new release and thank you for thinking of KXCI to share your music with our community of listeners! You are invited to send links of your digital submissions to [email protected]. A cadre of volunteers have access to this email and review some of these submissions.
You can also contact the Locals Only hosts Matt Milner and Sophie Gibson-Rush at [email protected].
The Homestretch Host Hannah Levin welcomes your releases at [email protected].
When sending a 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.
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.
We are delighted to receive local music to review for possible airplay. Locals Only on Monday night is a strictly local music program but there are many other shows that feature local music as well.
KXCI typically 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. Prior to Covid-19, mailing Cds physically to the station was really the preferred way to submit music to KXCI. However, currently, we are working remotely and we are unable to safely open all of the mail and get it labeled and on the shelves. Plus, our studios are currently closed to volunteers to access CDs for their shows.

When sending a cd, 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.
Prior to Covid-19 and once it is safe to do so, 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!
