FOR CONSIDERATION OF AIRPLAY
Thank you in advance for your interest in submitting for airplay on KGUP FM Emerge Radio and KGUP PRESENTS.
All CD and email submissions become the physical property of the radio station.
There is no guarantee made of receiving airplay or approval to appear on KGUP PRESENTS. Acknowledgement of your paid submission is guaranteed within 14 days of receipt.
NUMBER OF PLAYS PER DAY
If selected for radio rotation on KGUP FM Emerge Radio, we will play your song at least 8-12 times per day. Songs selected for streaming platforms like Spotfiy and
Google Play Music will appear on our curator playlists.
Each new artist that is added to rotation is promoted on our Instagram page. This is done to promote awareness that KGUP is playing your music. We simply ask that you "Like", "Regram", and "ReTweet". If you want us to promote an upcoming performance, just tag us at @KGUPFM and we will repost your message.
We charge $7 per song to submit for rotation consideration only. There is NO guaranteed airplay. The fee is to place your song to our review panel ahead of the standard free submission que and it helps us continue to help support local artists.

WHY THE F*** IS THERE A SUBMISSION FEE?
KGUP FM Emerge Radio is non-commercial, privately owned, operated, and self-funded radio station. We are anti-establishment. That means we do not have large corporate sponsors and we don't work for major labels, so they can't tell us who we should or should not play. Each dollar we receive becomes a vital part of our existence, so each submission fee we collect helps to keep KGUP on the air. Due to the continued support from local artists and listeners, KGUP has grown exponentially and continues to grow on a daily basis.
We'd like to keep it that way!
