Happy Fall!  Football season is in full effect and the World Series is just around the corner, Count Chocula cereal is available for purchase and we start to think of what we’re going to for Halloween.

A BIG slew of Hot AC radio releases makes September a highlight so far this year starting with the follow up to Sam Smith‘s multi-format #1 hit “Stay With Me”. Check out “I’m Not The Only One” and tell me I’m wrong when I say it’s another HIT for Mr. Smith. Making it’s way up […]

AAA201408-BoyBear-Nettwerk-512

2014 August Triple A Issue

Following up their Top #5 smash “Southern Sun” is Boy & Bear’s Three Headed Woman.  It’s not the typical song of girl done boy wrong but this time it’s boy imagines girl done boy wrong because he’s the one that’s done wrong.  It’s a unique take and musically it’s another wonderful turn from this Aussie […]

As the Summer heats up, so the Hot AC radio releases! Looks like another hit brewing for Capitol with Good Charlotte’s Madden Brothers, caught in the act of reinventing their sound and image with the colorful, familiar, yet fresh-sounding “We Are Done”.
