Initially, that radio database that our interns created provided information for about 300 college and community radio stations all across the country. After a little digging, we settled on submitting Stephanie’s current EP The Way Things Go to 160 college stations in physical CD format as per request from those stations. Later, we will submit her music to the remaining stations in digital format.
Earlier this week on December 14, 2015, 3300+Climbing teamed up with the Music Retail and Promotions class to put Stephanie’s CD together. Typically, our meetings start at one in the afternoon however most interns and students from the Music Retail and Promotions class showed up thirty minutes early to get our task finished. We created a pretty awesome assembly line. First, we cut out and insert CD covers. While a few did that, about four people were including social media contact information stickers to the back of the CD as our faculty advisors oversaw the burning of Stephanie’s music onto discs. Once all 160 CDs were burned, 3300+Climbing members Cassi and Cody applied a designed sticker to the disc. And finally, after we packaged Stephanie’s album with a one sheet into envelopes, we applied stations’ addresses. At the moment, we are currently waiting on a really awesome sticker from Full Sail graduate and graphic design artist Brenna Chapman. Her sticker will be included in the package for college radio DJs to use and show off as they play Stephanie’s music.
In January, we will mail Stephanie’s CD to college radio stations all over the nation as well as send an EPK to those that would rather have a digital copy of Stephanie’s album. And then throughout February and March and between Stephanie’s appearance at Full Sail’s 2016 Hall of Fame, 3300+Climbing interns will take feedback from college radio programmers, talk to bloggers, and track the overall success of her album.
