Station Owner/Programmer & A&R Lashaun Turner answers some Frequently Asked Questions about UrbanIndieRadio.com:
#1 When will my song air?
We use a 20- 25 slot rotation. Your song is assigned a position and is played there. You will have to listen until you hear it. If we put your song in Heavy Rotation it will occupy 2 slots and therefore be heard twice every 25 songs etc. Once your paid period is over- at our discretion we keep your song in our random playlist.. because of our licensing agreements we cannot offer On Demand features.
#2 Do I get paid for Spins on your station?
You do not receive any royalty payments from us. We pay our Licensing fee’s to Ascap, Sesac, BMI, that is our commitment. We are dedicated to operating a legal station which does not TAKE from Artists. We will maintain standard agreements with the performance rights organizations.
