How do I put songs INTO the itunes store?

A friend of mine asked whether he needed to be signed to a major label to have songs placed into the itunes store. All he wants is to get his stuff out into the public, and what place is better than the itunes store?

He already does the myspace music thing and although that is garnering him some success, he wants to get itunes exposure. He's even willing to place them in the store for free. I've looked all over itunes, but unless I'm blind and/or stupid, I couldn't find anything.

And on a related note, if one were to make one's own podcast, how does he or she get it onto itunes?

thanks in advance,
