Frequently Asked Questions - BRRD
Why use BRRD?
With our large database of country radio connections, we can have your material sent and have it in the hands of those who can get you airplay. More airplay equals a more broader audience reached, which potentially can turn into fans of your music. Depending on what package is purchased, a bio may also be sent out as well. We send material digitally, so a MP3 File or WAV File must be submitted before purchasing a package.
Radio is still the way most people hear new music. Here are some interesting stats from iHeart Media’s CEO Bob Pittman.
