Are you a Singer or a Band?

Here at The Cheese we like to help budding musicians break into the big time (well, big-ish time) with airplay on The Cheese.

If you’re a singer or in a Band, why not send us a copy of your cd and if we like it, it might just make it onto our regular playlist.

Post your CD to:

“Play my music!”

P.O Box 43214,
Wainuiomata 5014,

Note: Materials sent to us cannot be returned.  A submission of music does not guarantee airplay.
