Where is the station and what is the format?  Back in the "old days" before 
two big companies owned most of the stations, record companies were usually 
willing to put even small stations on some sort of promo service if you 
wrote on station letterhead and requested service.  It also helps if you 
report to a trade publication like Gavin or Album Network, and if you put 
out a weekly playlist, send it to the record companies so they can see 
which ones of their records you are playing.
