In order to submit your music to the South African radio stations, you need to do the following:

1) Make a list of all the stations whose format suits your style of music.

Radio is not a free for all. Stations have specific formats – a catch all term for ‘genres and styles of music played’ – they adhere to.

Establish which stations your songs are appropriate for, which radio hosts your songs may resonate with, and make a list of them.

2) Establish the station’s submission procedure

Every major station will have specific instructions for music submission. This will include submission addresses, file formats they accept, submission deadlines, and when to expect feedback (if at all). This info is usually a Google search away. Most SABC radio stations have a FAQ page with this info.

You’ll find the info, but here are some links to the main ones:
