All musicians are encouraged to submit their music to The U: UMSL Radio. Accepted submissions will be added to our automated playlist that plays in between live shows. This playlist is curated so our listeners are exposed to only the best tunes. Getting playtime on The U offers a great chance for up and coming artists to reach a new audience. We are especially interested in submissions from local St. Louis artists and bands!
We accept music submissions in the form of CD or vinyl at:
Attn: Music Director
The U: UMSL Radio
1 University Blvd.
St. Louis, Missouri 63121-4400
MP3 submissions can be sent to with a press release in .pdf:
ALL SONGS MUST BE FCC CLEAN, in MP3 format, and the files names must be formatted: “Artist – Song Title”
If your music is selected to be played on the station it will be uploaded to our automated playlist and be randomly played when there is no live DJ. Your music will also be available to the music department for DJ use.
Please do not call to inquire on the status of your music submission. We receive a high volume of music that is difficult to keep a record. Our team decides what submissions are best fit for the library. Some factors in their selection process are the music policy.
