Info for people who would like to submit music for broadcast consideration

As well as broadcasting a wide range of musical styles, Radio New Zealand maintains a music library which is a significant cultural depository and a resource for programme makers. Radio New Zealand National is interested in receiving at least two copies of all music made by New Zealanders, or released in New Zealand. We prefer to receive music on CD or vinyl.

We ask for at least two copies of a work so that we can lodge one copy in our music library for safe keeping, and use the other/s for programming. You may want to send more than two copies if you want a specific programme to consider your music for inclusion.

If you are sending an album, recommend the one or two songs you think would best suit our station.
