Submit Music

Want your music played on Radio Waterloo? Here are a few tips to help with that.

Physical Releases:

Wall-mounted racks of CD cases and sleeves
CKMS New Music Library
Send your Vinyl or CD to:

283 Duke St W, Unit 114b
Kitchener, Ontario, Canada
N2H 3X7

For a better response:

  • Check our show descriptions and label it to the attention of a show playing similar music. eg. Attn: Mano A Mano
  • If your music is local and/or Canadian let us know! We abide by the CRTC and play at least the minimum Canadian Content. We love to promote local talent.
  • A short description of your genre, style and influences also helps.
  • Have your CD in a standard case instead of a slim or paper jacket so that it can easily be seen on our shelves.

Digital Releases:

You can send an email to office@radiowaterloo.ca with links to your downloadable digital release (or with an attachment) and it will be made available for our hosts to review.

Alternatively, please check our show descriptions or the schedule and find a show that plays a similar genre, then leave a comment to contact the show hosts with your material.

Please make sure the metadata on digital files include the title, performer, composer, year, (album and track number if applicable), and, important to us, genre.

Canadian Content

Are you Canadian? Be sure to indicate if the music qualifies as Canadian Content (at least two of MAPL: Music composed by a Canadian, Artist (performer) is Canadian, Performance was in Canada, or Lyrics written by a Canadian); CanCon gets put into our regular rotation. And if you’re from Waterloo Region we’ll add it to our KWCon rotation too.
