Radio Promotion by Art Menius


#2 FolkDJ July 2019, #3 August #1 Bluegrass Roots Music Report 7 weeks on NACC folk

I provide promotion of recordings to folk and bluegrass radio for appropriate recordings using a negotiated fee based on how much work done and by what media. Service can be filtered by budget, location, the amount of work you are willing to do, or genre to fit your goals and budget.

Art Menius Media is based on two basic concepts:

  • You can afford radio promotion or assistance
  • You can’t afford not to have radio promotion support
I can scale from $50 for two hours of consultation to $2500 for Cadillac service. Between those two ends of service and fees, I can develop different levels of hybrid professional-DIY solutions or full service. That includes assistance to artists desiring to promote their own project.
