Hello from Starfleet Music Pool,

Welcome to our bi-weekly newsletter where we bring you up to date with our latest charts & musical info through our systems. This is a couple of days late. Please take a minute to read through this entire newsletter.

New York Yankees win 27th World Series

Now that this news is out, we request your help in getting us more of your artist’s pictures & drops for our site. I’ll be happy to send you the scripts, rather than placing them here, upon request via phone or e-mail. As far as the pictures go, we need higher quality versions, not from website thumbnails or the like. If & when we should use the pictures we’d like them to look great, not grainy. We’re working on going to the next level of information & more interaction with our website, so your help will be most appreciated.

ALSO, we’re still working hard copies, too, be it vinyl & or CDs. We could use up to 20 copies when available. MP3s must be 320 kbps mastered! See guidelines below..

*A quick note to some of the people e-mail blasting, PLEASE use bcc or blind carbon copy when sending e-mail to groups of addresses! We may not want all of the people you e-mail to have our addresses. Both of my main addresses have tripled in spam & junk mail just within the past several of months. Thanks for your help with this issue.*

We report to the Urban Buzz <Did you know?>

Here’s what is listed in this newsletter, 1. links to our latest charts, 2. links to our new music reviews, 3. links to our featured artist, 4. link to submitting digital music, 5. link to information about advertising on Starfleet’s website & in this newsletter. 6. links to some of the Newsflashes on our website.

*You may notice a change in the look of our charts. We are switching from all capital letters to capital letters for the start of each word ie, STARFLEET to Starfleet. This will take a couple of months to faze out, but we feel it will improve the look & function of our website.*

4. Guidelines for submitting digital music to Starfleet

Digital Music – Guidelines for submitting to Starfleet Music Pool

Please make sure to take a minute to “review these guidelines for submitting mp3s to us”. Every record pool is overwhelmed with the glut of mp3s sent to us daily & the majority of the music is either poor bit rated, not tagged properly & the files names are not setup right either. If you follow these guidelines you’ll be saving us time & the extra effort that we have to do to make sure our DJs have the best quality music. (Remember, time is money & if we have to fix your music, then there is a small setup fee to do so)

P.S. please keep in mind that we do still work vinyl & or CDs, too… We could use up to 20 copies…
