A late Summer heat wave burns Radio Programmers who due to limited space on their playlists chose to go MIA when it comes to keeping in communication with their record Label counterparts. Whether you have the space or not it's important to at least connect with the Label Reps so they can do their job and report back what the actual lay of the land is. To the Reps sometimes you need to back off the hard sell and listen to the information the Programmers are trying to pass on to you.
Showers drench our Label Buddies who get caught up in the downpour of Impacting New Releases that they tend to forget to follow up on the development and progress or work the rotation on records they just recently were able to get Programmers to embrace. If you don't show concern or commitment on how your own projects are building what message do you think you're giving the Programmers?
