#4 - Network. Find out if someone you know (or someone they know) has connections to music stations. Remember six degrees of separation - you’re only six people away from knowing anyone on planet and yes that includes station managers, concert promoters and record execs. The trick is it takes a great deal of work and time, but if you’re serious, it’s well worth it.
#5 - Go local, state, national. Don’t think you’re going to skip your local and state stations and be next Matchbox Twenty. It doesn’t work that way. Start small and then get big.
