Easy Ways to Support Us

Booking, Solicitations, and Submissions

The Podcast

We're always looking for live, in-studio guests (which later become podcasts). We mostly do bands, but if you've got a business, web site, art project, or other event with a solid connection to local music, we'd love to talk to you as well. We're currently working on a booking form, but in the meantime, you can just email us at studio -at- indyintune -dot- com.

  • Local (Indiana-based) acts with at least four original tunes (no covers) qualify and always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We broadcast live to Indy In-Tune Radio, and record the interview to be edited as a podcast on alternate Saturday afternoons. Recording times are 12:00 PM, 1:30 PM, 3:00 PM, and 4:30 PM.
  • Saturdays are generally booked at least a month in advance, sometimes more, so plan early. There are occasional cancellations, so we do have the equivalent of "flying standby."
  • The show goes out live, as it happens. It is released as a podcast at a later date. We make no guaratees on this date, but it will happen, eventually.

The Radio Station

All Indiana-based artists regardless of genre are welcome to submit tracks. We take produced tracks as well as good quality demos and live recordings. We even have openings for rebroadcasts of locally-produced podcasts as well. Hit us up about being part of "Talk Sunday."

  • We're working on an upload feature for these, but in the meantime, just email fully taggeed MP3's to submissions -at- indyintune -dot- com or send a link to where we can purchase your album (we don't mind purchasing your album one bit)
  • Send one track per email please.
  • Please indicate your relationship to the band/artist in the body of your email. (Band member, manager, label rep, etc.)
  • Please indicate that you grant Indy In-Tune a perpetual license to broadcast, stream, podcast, and use this music and/or derivates of this music for promotional music, with the understanding that Indy In-Tune will not sell or resell the music.
  • If you are PRO-affiliated (ASCAP, BMI, SEASAC, etc.) please fill out a release form, snap a picture, and attach it. This just says you understand we're not paying you, and likewise we're not making money off your music either.
  • Send one track per email please.
  • All genres are welcome, though some genres are only played on designated nights and during non-business hours. Consult our schedule, you'll get the idea.
  • Unless a DJ is on duty, all selections are completely random, so we can't guarantee when you'll hear your song.
  • We only allow a maximum of five songs per artist in rotation at any time. If you have a preference for which five, just let us know.
  • If you would like to record a spoken track intro feel free to submit it in the same manner. Say whatever you want (plug your web site or album link, etc.), just keep it under 15 seconds and be sure to add "... you're listening to Indy In-Tune Radio" at some point. Quality is unimportant, you can even record it using the voice app on your phone.

The Blog

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
