The Blast's web hosting provider is doing some upgrades to the website hosting server this weekend, and that may cause the website to go down for up to an hour at a time.
If that happens and you need a streaming address to listen to The Blast or The Blast Blender, go to www.facebook.com/theblastfm for the list of streaming addresses. It is in the Notes section.
At The Blast and The Blast Blender, we get a lof of requests for airplay from independent artists and bands from all over the world.
You'll go to the top of the consideration stack if your music and production are of high quality, your music fits our format, and if you go this route:
1. A listen link on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, etc. Pick the song you think is best for our format. Tell us what you think it is.
2. Send us a note about what your band is all about. Testimony letter, statement of beliefs, etc. A letter from your pastor would be especially helpful.
3. Send lyrics for the song you are submitting. If there is any ambiguity in your lyrics, send us an explanation of the song's meaning.
4. Send these three or four things to us at: Airplay <at> TheBlast.FM
5. A follow-up email or two from you is helpful, as our Program Director/Music Director also does a lot of other things here besides screen new music.
6. After we listen and read through your stuff…if we are interested, we will ask you to send a .wav or 320 kbps or higher MP3 download file.
