Amrap CD Mailout Closure Image

Announcing the Closure of the Amrap CD Mailout Service

Joshua Cole, 11th September 2023

We would like to advise musicians and broadcasters that the CBAA is discontinuing the Amrap CD Mailout service towards the end of 2023. 

What this means: 

  • There will be no further CD mailouts after the 2023 November mailout 

  • We will take no further bookings after the October 24 deadline for the November mailout. CDs arriving after October 31 may not be distributed or returned 

In the past, the CD Mailout Service has been a great way for artists to deliver their music to community broadcasters. We are proud of its impact and grateful to everyone who has participated. 

However, as the music industry and community broadcasters are now well entrenched with the use of digital formats, there has been a reduced demand and diversity of offerings, and the service is no longer viable. 

We are exploring a new service to run alongside the Amrap platform which will deliver broadcasters targeted releases digitally. While there is no current date to launch the service, there will be an Amrap survey available soon to musicians and broadcasters to offer feedback and thoughts.  

In the meantime, if you are looking to distribute or play the latest in Australian music we encourage you to use

We would like to thank everyone who made use of the CD Mailout Service and look forward to keeping you updated about the upcoming digital service.
