How to apply for the Amrap's Monthly CD Mailout Service


Many of the community radio network's 450-plus stations still favour CD as their preferred format to broadcast music. Finding the right stations for your music is something Amrap can help you with through our monthly CD mailout! 

Amrap can distribute your CD albums or EPs to stations nationwide where they reach presenters who love getting them. Cost is minimal - essentially postage and admin - and we'll target the best station and do the labour for you. We'll give you a report on who got your music and you can follow up to chase more airplay and other opportunities.

Our CD mailout happens usually around the start of each month, so have a look at the dates and details and submit your music! 

Please note: Releases comprising of more than 50% cover versions are ineligible to take part.


Mailout Fee

This is the only service that Amrap charges a fee for. This is to subsidise packaging and postage costs. Amrap applies a small administrative fee of $65.00 for all clients, plus a charge of $2.20 per disc you have distributed inclusive of GST. So for example the cost of distributing… 50 discs is $175.00 ($65.00 admin fee plus $2.20 x 50)

Support Material

Amrap can distribute support material (biographies/media releases etc) for no extra charge if they are:

  • Printed on A4 paper, folded and enclosed within each CD cover, OR
  • Printed on 12 x 12 cm sheet /card and slipped into each CD cover.


Amrap - Request For CD Mailout Service 

Please submit this form for your release to be considered for possible distribution through our Mailout service. We will preview your release digitally and let you know if it's eligible for distribution to community radio stations for potential airplay.


- We distribute CDs of full albums, EPs or compilations only. If you wish to distribute a single, please apply via the AirIt Content Application Form

- We distribute CDs that have been released within 12 months of your application to this service.

- We only send one copy of your CD to each station. This enables us to spread your music to as many stations as possible and allows you to send more copies direct to them if the station wants more.

Best of luck with your application!
