I get a lot of submissions for the station. And that’s a good problem to have. One drawback, however, is a small percentage of those submissions are not our format, not recorded well or just plain suck. It’s the last one that kind of bothers me. Music is music. Why somebody would record three minutes of just noise is almost offensive. Especially to those that work hard to perfect their craft. I wonder what goes thru the heads of people who record this stuff. I get the experimental portion of it but submitting for airplay? They either received bad advice or grew up without knowing what radio is.
Here is a sample of a submission that fall into the suck category. Names have been withheld to protect feelings of the offending “artist”.
