No New Posts Composers Forum Radio

Please submit links to your MP3 tracks here for consideration to be uploaded to our Composers Forum Radio. This is an ongoing project and, due to regulations governing how frequently particular artists or tracks may be repeated, we will need to amass a minimum amount of material to launch the station.

Please submit only links to your tracks in MP3 format, and ensure that the target MP3's permissions/properties are set to downloadable.

Submission of your links here will be regarded as consent to upload those files to our internet radio station. If you have submitted tracks and wish to remove them, please contact this site's administration in order to have them deleted from this thread, and from our radio station, if applicable.
