Submit Your Music
The Radio Grotto wants to broadcast your ORIGINAL songs, but before we can do that we must walk the fine line of legality with you. Even if you're a solo artist who is unsigned and independent, you own the rights to your song. With our Broadcast License Agreement for Unsigned Artists (BLA), we protect your rights as well as ours. It makes sense.
Read the BLA below or download a PDF of the Broadcast License Agreement for Unsigned Artists. When you're ready, link to THE BROADCAST LICENSE AGREEMENT SUBMISSION FORM below.
We can download your songs from SoundCloud, YouTube, Dropbox, or you can send us an email with your songs attached.
The Radio Grotto wants to develop a good relationship with you. If you decide you don't want us to broadcast your songs after you sign the BLA, send an email to email@example.com telling us that, and we'll immediately stop playing your songs.
Also, we'll not give any of your private information to anyone, but hackers exist, and we cannot guarantee our website will not be hacked. Neither can governments, it seems. We wish you the best of luck and hope we're broadcasting your songs soon!
This is the spot on the page for the Music Submissions Form; however, music submissions have been suspended indefinitely. Thanks.
The Broadcast License Agreement for Unsigned Artists
The ARTISTS named in the Broadcast License Agreement Acceptance Submission Form (hereinafter BLAASF) do hereby consent to allow THE RADIO GROTTO to broadcast the songs listed in the BLAASF. THE RADIO GROTTO shall determine if and when the songs shall be broadcast.
The ARTISTS named in the BLAASF do hereby acknowledge to hold ALL of the rights throughout the TERRITORY, including recorded performance rights and copyright, for the songs listed in the BLAASF. The ARTISTS named in the BLAASF guarantee that they own and control all rights. The ARTISTS named in the BLAASF shall indemnify and hold THE RADIO GROTTO harmless from any and all claims, liabilities and costs, losses, damages or expenses, including attorney’s fees, arising out of any breach, allegation, claim or failure of any covenants or warranties made by the ARTISTS named in the BLAASF.
THE RADIO GROTTO shall not have exclusive rights to broadcast the songs listed by the ARTISTS named in the BLAASF. THE RADIO GROTTO shall credit on its Web site the ARTISTS or pseudonym or band name. The Broadcast License Agreement may be revoked by the ARTISTS, with or without cause, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ARTISTS may subsequently submit additional original songs to THE RADIO GROTTO without submitting a new BLAASF. By submitting the additional original songs, (1.) the ARTISTS do hereby declare they are the same ARTISTS listed in the initial BLAASF, and (2.) the ARTISTS do hereby agree to the Broadcast License Agreement for Unsigned Artists for the subsequently submitted songs.
This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original but all of which together shall constitute one and the same Agreement. The counterparts of this Agreement and all Ancillary Documents may be executed and delivered by facsimile or other electronic means such as an electronic submission form by any of the parties to any other party and the receiving party may rely on the receipt of such document so executed and delivered by facsimile or other electronic means such as an electronic submission form as if the original had been received.
The TERRITORY of this agreement is the entire universe.
The word UNSIGNED as used in this agreement means the ARTISTS named in the BLAASF have not been signed by a label or publisher and retain all rights to the submitted songs.
The word BROADCAST as used in this agreement means live and recorded broadcasts, including podcasts.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE ENTIRE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES HEREIN.
