    Where do you purchase your music from?

    I have always wondered where the best place is to purchase music from for radio broadcasters. DRM free, high quality and easily accessible.

    What service do you use? Amazon? iTunes? CD's?

    My latest purchases have mostly been from Amazon, iTunes, and my local record store.

    Promo agents and bands themselves as we play a lot of unsigned rock and blues.

    I use to purchase from eMusic, they have/had a monthly fee you paid, but it has been so long since Ive been a member there, they may have changed. You can also buy by the Album or individual songs as well. Theres a "free daily download" too. Other than eMusic, have also purchased from Amazon and iTunes. Any more though, just a CD now and again.

    If you get your music from record/MP3 pools. They should all be DRM Free. As the labels are all looking for high quality promotion of their artists. Of course this is not meant as a source to get "free music" (general public). You must be a DJ or a Radio station to get access, with certain verififcations to be allowed access. Most record pools charge a monthly fee to remain a member. Monthly fees can range from $10.00-$85.00.
    There are some other reputable sources that do not charge for access. Again, in order to get in, you have to be verified as a Radio station of some sort.
    If you're looking to find a pool that fits your station, Google is your friend. For some, 2 pool subscriptions are common to meet their musical tastes.

    Find a online digital record pool where you can download they type of music you play. The record pool might give you a 30 or 60 trial if you tell them you run a online radio station and have a website and Facebook page for you station.
