BWD Radio, or www.bwdradio.com, is an internet radio station that charges musicians/music artists for radio airplay.  We were emailed by them, and asked to submit an MP3 for radio airplay for an online show where artists are judged. 

They promoted the fact that they were going to play us to our internet fan base, and never played our song.  They claimed that their "judges" judged to 'shut it down', when the song was never played, and our fans did not have an opportunity to call in and judge.

We did not pay for airplay, we were targeted by BWD Radio, most likely because of our strong online presence.  i do not want to see any artists make a "donation" to BWD Radio, and not get their song played, when they are targeting that artists online fanbase to gain listeners and possible donations.

Be wary of any internet site that asks for money to play your song.  Obviously, BWD Radio is the worst of the worst.

This report has nothing to do with us.

AUTHOR: sb37 - ()

 We did work with BWD Radio in the past.  This report has nothing to do with us, though.  We never filed a complaint, and there's no one by the name "Randal" in this group.  I'd say that the initial report was fake, but BWD Radio sent an unprovoked threatening email directly to me, which was in reply to an email I had sent them regarding radio airplay in May.

 

I can see why they might have mistakenly emailed us, but this has nothing to do with us.  We appreciate the undeserved attention, but not the email threats.

#2 UPDATE Employee

Indie Artist Radio Stations Beware any Communications with the Band s****.>

AUTHOR: BWD Radio - ()

This is a pure example of Indie Artists going rogue on the very stations that offer many of todays DIY music artists.  Didn't do research before shooting from the hip due to running on emotions of being a sore contest loser. Here is the On-Demand Show that supposively didn't happen.  lol   http://www.blogtalkradio.com/bwdradio/2013/05/17/bwd-radio--breaking-new-artists-exclusive-interviews Music was played, not to mention horrible music and the worldwide reach of public callers voted it as a #ShutItDown versus #CrankItUp on our #TheArtistChallenge Show which provides artists radio play if they win.   

If they would of investigated as told to versus being like children and slandering us on this website, knowing nothing about all the good BWD Radio does as the "Voice of the Indies" (God's got this by the way) ; being we have 24/7 live music non-stop and live shows throughout the entire week.. so we have two players, they were told this and that they could play the show back, while slandering us via social media on twitter; which would be available on demand after shows end, to prove their allegations of not being played and voted on as false allegations versus accepting the fact that their music was horrible.  

They were also advised they were either listening to the wrong player or because they were waiting for the song to play via listening to the show's player when specifically told via email before the show to call 'into' the show to participate.  They took it upon themselves to do the opposite and sit and listen via a player and not call in. Reason for calling in to listen was due to the radio delay which it's obvious this artist knows nothing about radio.  Radio is on a delay from players to what's actually going on live. We believe they weren't even at the correct player and suggest that the next time a station responds to their emails of consideration for radio play; that they follow the directions sent and not do their own thing.  smh

We do 'allot' of free support for the Indie Artists of today, all genres, and each time there seems to be a butthead out there that has us regretting all we do, momentarily, by treating the indie bds stations like they owe them something for nothing.  Yet, it's okay that we reach into our pocket to operate the station with websites, promotion, staff, etc. They state don't pay, yet commercial radio is paid for, though not proveable, so I suppose they'll never get high radio play since they expect something for nothing.  

These ridiculously 'big headed' Alternative Rock Band from NJ, state they were targeted for a following??  lol Are you serious?!!   http://www.blogtalkradio.com/bwdradio and you will see all the good we do for artists.  Didn't deserve this nice SEARCH Engine Result we stumbled upon.  Well; glad we could return the favor.

WE FIGURED SINCE THEY CHOSE TO PUT US FALSEY OUT INTO THE SEARCH ENGINES UNDER OUR SEARCH OF BWD RADIO, IT'S ONLY RIGHT THE PUBLIC KNOW WHO THEY ARE AND THE TRUTH WITH THE FACTS AND PROOF WHICH IS PROVIDED BETWEEN THE OWNER'S LAST POST AND MINE AS AN EMPLOYER.  INDEPENDENT MUSIC STATIONS BEWARE OF SUPPORTING CERTAIN ARTISTS SUCH AS s****.>

Sore Contest Loser Of Free Contest Entry & Reports as Rip Off -- WOW Are you Serious?

AUTHOR: BWD Radio - ()

Sad thing is that this post should of never been approved to be on this site being that it is intended for people that rip others off.  This person, of which I recall exactly who they are, emailed us first with their music for consideration to be in our live artist challenge show.  Judges are the public that calls in and votes after the song is played; not a regular panel of judges nor the dj's decision.  Their music was chosen to be in the show and that if the judges voted them up then they'd stay in rotation. This show is a free show and always has from the start.  This artist was a sore loser because the 'unknown public' on the phone lines, voted their music as bad. Artist was very mad and caused a scene all over twitter social media; childish, to include his party of friends.  

This was obviously his way to get back at me for being a loser on the show and took it a step further to slander my company name. 

To approve a posting like this on this site makes no sense because they even say they spent no money.  Wow.  Clear your name?  Trying to make money then because this is not a legit ripoff report.

God's got this....  smh
