About HotWax Radio

We Are Music People

We are music people. Just like you. This radio is a mirror of our souls. Our mission is to search out and expose great new music to people who otherwise may never encounter it. So please enjoy our vibes, cause our music never ends.

Our Program Director/DJ, Patrick Rule, has 4 decades of music industry experience, including 8 years as a Broadcast DJ, 6 years as a Club DJ, and 12 years operating this station. From promoting Tracy Chapman’s debut record to Number One on College Radio, to tour managing Big Mountain and Robin Trower, “DJ Trick” has done just about everything in the music biz. He has an ear for talent and is always searching for Hit Indie Music.

how our rotations work

We add new music Twice Monthy on our LIVE DJ SHOW, which airs alternating Fridays from 4-6 pm Eastern/1-3 pm Pacific. As we review your songs, we’ll reach out to you and connect via Facebook and/or Twitter.

Once we’ve decided when your music will be added, we will notify you via the e-mail address you’ve provided to let you know when your music will debut on our Live Show.

Once your music is selected, it will be featured in one of our New Music rotations for about a month or so. New Music tracks generally receive between 4 to 6 spins per day during their stay in New. Once your music has “run its course”, it will reside in one of our specific Genre rotations, where it will receive 3 to 5 spins per week moving forward.

As you will hear in our rotations, we have several artists that have submitted several tracks, and even several albums worth of music over the years. Many of these artists send us new tracks every month. This way, they have a New Song playing on HotWaxRadio.com all the time!
