2013 August Hot AC Issue

Welcome to the August RadioInformer! It’s high Summer and Pink is now embarking into uncharted territory following five #1-charting Hot AC songs with what sounds like yet another #1. “True Love”, featuring British chantreuse Lily Allen, is another clever, hook-laden, Pink masterpiece. Have you heard of Boy? Swiss singer, Valeska Steiner and German bassist, Sonja Glass had their song “Little Numbers” featured on a Lufthansa advertisement in 2012 things started happening. Boy oh boy! “Little Numbers” sounds like it could get big numbers at radio by the Fall. Things have been happening for Justin Tinberlake for a long time…most recently a #1 Hot AC AND Top 40 hit, “Mirriors”. Now comes “Take Back the Night” already added at many fine radio stations throughout the country where JT is currently touring. Emeli Sande is back with a monstrously produced follow-up single (“My Kind of Love”) to her Top 5 hit, “Next To Me”.  Listen to this one a few times before you judge. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by new arrival Marie Miller. The Mumford-ish instrumentation and arrangement make “You’re Not Alone” a jaunty upbeat ditty…but with a great message. Keep listening. Bonnie Mckee’s “American Girl” sounds like a modern female “Jessie’s Girl”-type anthem. And Goo Goo Dolls are back with a haunting “Come To Me”… this one could surpass their recent Top 20, “Rebel Beat”. Back by popular demand on this Ri issue are Serena Ryder and Michael Franti with current singles “Stompa” and “I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like)” respectively. The massive groove of “Stompa” is hard to sit still to. This song deserves to be heard! And “I’m Alive” is a Summer smash. Better play it sooner than later…
