The station’s founder and CEO Marlon Wright is encouraging upcoming and established reggae artistes both locally and abroad to take advantage of the payola free platform.

We have over two million listeners worldwide therefore we are in a position to give artistes a lot of exposure free of cost. All they have to do is email their music firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the songs submitted meet out criteria they are added to the playlist that all our DJs use during their shows,” he said.
