WDKK Radio is a privately owned and funded radio station dedicated to playing music and spoken word by independent artists and spoken word artists.
WDKK Radio receives several CDs daily from local, regional and global artists. With that being said, it is impossible to add every CD received to the station’s playlist. In order to ensure that your music is reviewed, please adhere to the following guidelines.
- CD submissions must have a PG rating. With that said, all submissions must be suitable for young children.
- Mail CD to WDKK Radio, 174 Baltimore St, Dayton, OH 45404, Attention: D.A. Williams. Cassette tapes and/or other media will not be accepted.

- The CD must be of professional quality and be commercially available
- A CD submitted for review will not be returned unless accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope. Postage must be sufficient to return CD to you.
- We are under no obligation to listen to everything that is submitted to us. With that said, please do not organize an email or calling campaign. This will have no bearing on if your music or spoken word is played on our station.
