Or you can do it yourself - take a bunch of press packs complete with copies of your CD and go visiting. There's still no guarantee of airplay
I might have the timings wrong on this bit, but I'm sure the PRS/ MCPS collect royalties from the stations every six months based on submitted playlist returns, work out what's due to everybody and pay it across - it's not a speedy process.

I don't remember, but I think the station got wind and asked if we could play in the studio and be interviewed.
college radio is a great way to get exposure.
there is a good chance he called the station and asked. he was a pretty aggressive promoter.
I have no idea about college stations but my guess is that would be easier.
It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll!

I worked for Clear Channel for a number of years, and found that they had alot of Local talent nights where they would play submitted music from Local Artists...now it was overnight mind you, but they would do it, and they would even have the people in at those hours to talk about their music.
It's not much, but it's a start anyway.
