2014 June AC Issue


Welcome to Issue #3 of the AC Radio Informer…an important issue as this sampler is now becoming an important tool for the world of AC. The ability to deliver a physical CD to make listening a one stop experience is important to busy Programmers who have so much to juggle these days. To our label partners, as always, we are grateful for your support of the sampler and AC Radio.

The cover this month is the multi-multi-multi(well, you get the idea)smash from RCA’s Magic!. “Rude” is a hit on every format it has been worked and AC is following suit. Our back cover features a trio of great artists for the format. One of my good promotion pals has been on the road with Curb’s Marie Miller and every report back from the road is what a star she is. 6’2 has been developing over the course of several months and now looks poised to be a breakout hit for both AC & HAC thanks to early support at a trio of stations on Sirius/XM. BMG returns with another great AC project with former American Idol star Danny Gokey. “ Hope In Front of Me” is already a Top 20 and growing Christian Radio hit with over 11 ½ million impressions so the foundation is set for crossover to AC.

Margo Rey is closing in on the Top 20 with her beautiful “Colours”. This will be her 5th Top 20 AC Radio hit as she develops into a core AC artist. Both Kanisha K and The Villains have had charted success at the format and with their new tracks will build on the foundation of previous success. These artists and the teams behind them represent the very best of what the Independent label has to offer…great artists with great songs for the format.  I first met Marina V many years ago playing in a book store!! She had recently come to the US from Russia and I was impressed with her music and her determination to make it here…and do it on her own. Marina is a shining example of a DIY artist who funds her own releases and all marketing and promotion costs. “You Make Me Beautiful” is one on my personal favorites of hers and we are happy to present it here. This song has been featured in The Good Wife; has been a big hit in Brazil; and won an international award from Sir Bob Geldof. Lavendine were just hitting radio as the last sampler shipped so we reprise it here as “Maybe I Might” is now making an early impact at AC.
