How to apply for the Amrap CD Mailout Service

Print
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 below! 

Please note: Taking part in the Amrap CD mailout does not guarantee airplay at any station that receives your release. Amrap does its best to maintain correspondence with all stations on our mailing lists but can’t guarantee all contact information we supply to be wholly accurate at all times. We suggest follow ups from artists include phone calls to the station to see how their release was received. We don't enocurage the distribution of singles through the CD Mailout as we have found there is better reception at stations for EP's and Albums. 

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.
