Music Submission

Music Submission Policy

Star 99.1 receives many inquiries from local and regional independent artists asking us to play their music. Since we have a limited number of slots available on our playlists, selecting music is done according to established criteria.

Star 99.1 Submission Policy

  1. Programming decisions and music selections for Star 99.1 are made on a non-discriminatory basis.
  2. Music submitted for consideration should be sent to the following address:
    Rick Hall
    Program Director
    P.O. Box 9058
    Zarephath, NJ 08890-9058
  3. Star 99.1 accepts new music submissions via audio CD only.
  4. Music submitted must be of broadcast quality and meet the following criteria:
    High-quality creative content (well-written music; lyrics that reflect a Christian worldview)
    High performance quality (the caliber of playing and singing)
    Standard recording quality (the sonic and technical quality of the tracks and mix)
  5. Due to volume of submissions, song review and evaluation services are not available. Please visit the Gospel Music Association website for resources on song and artist development. If a submission is selected, a representative of Star 99.1 will contact you. All submitted music should be accompanied by bio and contact information, including a valid email address, information on the song and copyright and performance rights information.
  6. With regard to musical performance rights, Star 99.1 holds licenses with ASCAP, BMI and SESAC only. By submitting music for consideration, you represent that the submitted music has been registered with one of these three performing rights organizations. Alternatively, if you are not a member of these organizations, you represent and warrant that you hold these rights personally and grant Star 99.1 the right to broadcast your material. In addition, because we stream music over the internet, by submitting music for consideration you represent that the submitted music has been registered with SoundExchange. Alternatively, if you are not a member of SoundExchange, you represent and warrant that you hold these rights personally and grant Star 99.1 the right to stream your material on a non-interactive, non-subscription basis.
