How to have your tracks considered for airplay
Thank you for your interest in submitting your music work to the Mondello Radio Group.
Please spend a couple of minutes to carefully read the information on this page before proceeding.
If you think your music would fit nicely on one or more of our channels please send it to us.
The Mondello Radio Group (MRG.fm) is a Zero-Revenue and Listener-Supported group of radio stations that provides free radio streams for its listeners, as a way to promote interest in non-commercial music as well as provide exposure for non-commercial unsigned and independent music artists, regardless of fame. We want to help good music to reach listeners.
It is impossible for us to play all music we receive, thus we are forced to choose which music will receive airplay and which will not. We base our music selection criteria solely on how and if it matches the format of our radio stations, the quality of the music and of the recording, our own subjective impressions of the music as well as the available airtime.
Please note that because of this we cannot guarantee that every track submitted will receive airplay. We receive many new albums to consider every week, therefore, it is impossible to estimate how long it will take for us to review a particular track or how long it will be until it sees airplay.
We can guarantee, though, that we will eventually listen to every track submitted.
If we do not play a particular track or tracks on our station, please do not be discouraged;
it could simply be that it didn't match the format of our station or that there simply wasn't room enough for all the tracks we wanted to play.
However, please do bear in mind that all decisions regarding what tracks we will play are in our sole discretion and are final.
We regret that we cannot respond to each one individually.
You will only hear back from us if your submission request is considered a good fit by a channel director.
