The FuMP Launches New Program for Radio Stations
The Funny Music Project today announced a new program to make it easier for radio stations to play the funny music posted on its web site. DJs, music directors, and radio producers who register with the site will be given access to high-quality downloads of radio-edited versions of the music.
The songs are posted as MP3 files encoded at 320k to ensure that they are of broadcast quality. When necessary, the songs are edited for content and sometimes length to make them radio-friendly.
"We've had quite a bit of success getting our music on the radio in the past" says Tom Rockwell, owner of FIDIM Interactive, LLC and manager of The FuMP. "We're hoping to expand that with this program."
Many songs from The FuMP have been featured on the nationally syndicated Dr. Demento Show. Dr. Demento, a registered user of The FuMP, called the site "one of the best things to happen to funny music since Al got Weird."
Several morning show DJs have also picked up on the funny songs posted there, most notably Robert Lund's "99 Words For Boobs," which received nationwide airplay in 2007.
In addition to downloading the songs from the site, DJs can subscribe to a private RSS feed which will deliver the high quality radio edits as a podcast.
DJs and other radio personnel who wish to get more information or sign up for this program can do so by visiting http://www.thefump.com or by contacting Tom Rockwell at email@example.com.
