College-affiliated radio stations in the US were divided into four geographic regions and seeded based on the number of active broadcast hours on their weekly show schedule, not counting syndicated or automated programming blocks. This represents a change from last year when stations were not geographically divided and the seeding was entirely based on number of plays on Soundtap.com.
This is the second annual Soundtap Madness.
Soundtap Madness 2012 logged over 2 million listening minutes.
Can we talk about Soundtap Madness on air and rally listeners? Yes. Talking about the tournament, describing the rules, indicating where to find the tournament and how to score points for the station is all within compliance of FCC regulations. However, DJs need to remember their fundamental training. Non- commerical radio DJs should NOT issue a call to action unless the entity is a legal 501c3. That status is difficult and expensive to obtain; Soundtap has not achieved it yet. So, DJs should NOT tell listeners to use Soundtap but can say that if listeners are interested in learning more and supporting the station, the URL is soundtap.com
