    • DMDS allows me to upload wav and mp3 files. Which type is best?
      Radio holds very high standards for the quality of audio they play on-air. Wav is the standard uncompressed digital file format suitable for radio.

Distributing a less than pristine audio file will limit your chances of gaining airplay, especially with satellite and HD broadcasters. […]

If there is […]
