CJSR plays the most eclectic music in all of Edmonton. We want to play your band/rap group/folktronica act/didgeridoo orchestra. We just need your music.
To submit your music to CJSR, mail or drop off your CD, vinyl, cassette, etc. to:
Attn: Music Department
CJSR World Domination Headquarters
Room 0-09 SUB University of Alberta
Edmonton, AB T6G 2J7
If you are sending a CD from outside of Canada, be sure to mark “commercial sample” on the customs form.
You can send your digital album or EP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don’t send links to your Spotify/Tidal/other paid streaming service (Bandcamp is fine though.)
Here are some tips to help get your music played:
- Make sure your CD clearly has the name of your band, album, and tracks. You’d be surprised how many discs we get without track listings.
- We don’t accept single tracks—albums or EPs only please.
- Include some info about your band, namely where you are from, and identify any focus tracks from your release. Don’t bother with extra press photos and the like when a one-sheet will do.
- Include track lengths.
- Include a language warning for any tracks with nasty language.
New albums go on our Gnu Wax shelf, and they are easier for DJs to see if they have a spine. Thin cases are obviously cheaper to mail, but sometimes they slip through the cracks.
CJSR also runs a special deal for bands and musicians that want to advertise a new album: the Rock ’n’ Roll Special. For $100 you get two ads each day on CJSR, for two weeks leading up to your album release. That’s only $3.50 per ad! For more info on the Rock ’n’ Roll Special, see our Advertising page.
