Has anyone tried reaching out to labels requesting music? Are they receptive or do they blow you off? Being that this station is primarily 70’s music, where could I go to request song “original” music?
We just started a new station/stream within the last week. We are still in the tweaking mode. Unfortunately, a lot of my files are old and I have been trying to get higher quality song files. I’ve been lucky that I was able to rip about 35% of the music into 320kbps mp3 files, but that leaves a good chunk that doesn’t sound good/right to my ears (they are 128kbps mp3 files that have been edited, saved and re-saved many times over for many years).
For the music I want to replace, I can probably purchase them (which I have no issue doing), but trying to find the original recording is a challenge. Most of these re-recordings from the original artist 30-40 years later really aren’t as good as what the originals were. I was just wondering if anyone had success getting music from record labels.
