    Q: Where do I go to see if my new music is “in the system?”
    If you are a subscriber to Music Information Systems, your song will appear on the system AFTER IT RECEIVES INITIAL AIRPLAY.

    In some cases (e.g., more popular full length CDs), all songs will be entered upon arrival of CD at Mediabase offices, regardless of whether or not they have received airplay. In all cases, the song will appear after it is first detected for airplay.

    Who do I contact if I suspect there is a Discrepancy in my airplay reporting?
