Submitting music to Outpost Radio stations

For released albums, we prefer to work from CDs for consistency of sound, tagging, artwork, etc. To send a CD, please request our mailing address here.

We can accept electronic submissions as described below. Note that we cannot legally take music from YouTube, Spotify, etc.

We report folk/acoustic adds weekly to FolkDJ and NACC, and they are displayed on our web page. We do not send email notifications when submissions are added.

Digital Submissions

Albums:
  • We can only accept albums via Dropbox or Google Drive
  • Make a .zip file with all album tracks, artwork, and info.
  • The tracks must be .mp3, 192 kbps or higher, and tagged with title, artist, and album.
  • Place the file in Dropbox or GoogleDrive and send the link to us at
  • Release packages which include multiple formats (.wav, etc) in addition to mp3 are welcome.
Singles:
  • A single file must be mp3 as described above.
  • Send a Dropbox or GoogleDrive link to the file as described above.
  • Alternately, email to the above address with no more than one attached mp3 file.
Important points:
  • Proper mp3 tags are essential and are displayed for listeners. Untagged files are not usable.
  • Do not send any file types except .mp3 for audio tracks. MP3 256kbps CBR is the recommended format.
  • Digital releases are usually not listed on NACC charts and so are not reported.
Caution: All too often, digital files are found to be unusable during processing and must be discarded. Lack of complete and correct tags is the most common problem. We are not able to notify submitters when this happens.

Thanks.
