Hey there! Jamie from the Creator Services team here.
We wanted to make sure you knew about the AMP: Fresh Cuts Station. Fresh Cuts plays an eclectic mix of up and coming artists, who all use AMP!
If you have a new release (less than 2 months old) of any genre, and would like to get that track on Fresh Cuts, please tag the Pandora AMP socials on your release posts and we will have a listen!
We allow one track per artist at a time (and are happy to swap tracks out if needed). Tracks are removed 3 months after release day.
There's a TON of awesome music on this station, and we will often pass music on to other programmers for them to check out.
Does that mean
1) For a release less than X months old
2) Create a social media post, tag with the provided tag
3) Pandora listening crew will listen? On it.
I'd like to take you up on the offer to swap out tracks. Currently have Mango Island Sound "Dance, Dance, Maybe" on Fresh Cuts, and would like to replace it with newer release, Mango Island Sound "Calypso is Good for the Soul". I tagged AMP Pandora on a couple social media posts, but that wouldn't show my intent to replace the existing track. Checked with AMP support last week, and this morning they just got back to me saying they couldn't do anything, that I should reach out here instead. Am I in the right place?
So, did I find the right place to make this request, or not? It's been another week and there's still no evidence that the newer track ("Calypso is Good for the Soul") has replaced the previous one in Fresh Cuts. If this is NOT the place to make that request, let me know. This is where AMP support sent me.
By "release day" do you mean: 1) when the song was released to the world in general; 2) when the song was first available to premium subscribers on Pandora (which could be, in my experience, months after #1), or 3) when the song was first available for radio play on Pandora (which you might want to add a few more months buffer for that process)?
For our records, release day is usually the day we release the song to the world but in actuality it is when the song is first available on a DSP. Thank you for pointing out the distinction and suggestion.
