At Cactus Radio, we are always interested
in hearing new music. If you have suggestions, (legal) MP3s, or
promotional CDs, we'd love to give them a listen.
Will we play your song? Well, it
depends on if we like it! The staff of Cactus Radio don't pretend to be
music experts, but we know what we like and we know what our listeners
enjoy. So, send it in and we'll see...
For artist or song recommendations, simply
make a request. If it is an unknown band or obscure songs and there are
legal MP3s available, please tell us where we can find them.
If you'd like to send us a CD of your
band's songs, please send it to:
411 West Buena Vista Drive
Tempe, AZ 85284-5221
Before you send in your material, though,
maybe you should check our top 10 list below. We do play some
artists' songs that break these "rules", but not very many...
