2014 March AC Issue


Welcome to the inaugural issue of the AC Radio Informer. I am so excited to bring the Radio Informer brand to AC Radio and thank our label partners for welcoming us in a big way. The response speaks volumes about the importance of AC Radio to the labels. To grace our first cover is superstar George Michael who returns to radio with “Let Her Down Easy”. With new action at The Blend, the national profile will be instant. We are proud to have three superstar women for the format grace the sampler with Christina Perri; Celine Dion; and Mariah Carey all represented with their charting hits. The independent labels are well represented here with a group of strong tracks: Danny Griego’s “Coast Is Clear” was chart debut this week on Mediabase and Viennie V’s “How Could You” was tied with Danny in spins and was thisclose to the chart. New artists Roxana and Evie Archer are beginning to make their mark at the format. Old pro Billy Ray Cyrus offers up an important new song with an important message with “ Hope Is Just Ahead”. We hope you find the AC RI to be of value in making your music listening that much easier. We at RI feel like the physical CD is still a valuable tool for programmers and hope this becomes an important tool in your music making decisions. Since this is my first issue let me close by thanking Ben Brooks and Stan Kaneshige for adding me to the team and walking me through the process of making this sampler happen.
