Saints

RCA's John Strazza would like to send a blessing out to Portland's Mark Adams for hearing the Jacob Latimore single "Heartbreak Heard All Around The World" at the Clear Channel meetings in NY and returning to Portland put the song on the radio. Mark is letting it develop in airplay and Shazam regardless of national chart position! Thanks Mark!!

Blessing go out to Def Jam's Rodney Shealey, Bill Evans and the Urban Team as well as Noah Sheer, Scott Maness and the Rhythm Team for grabbing #1 Most Added honors at both formats for the latest from YG "Do It To Ya" featuring TeeFlii. We also shoutout Atlantic's John McMann and team who share the #1 Most Added slot at Rhythm with Wiz Khalifa's "You And Your Friends." At Pop the trumpets sound off for Dave Dyer, Josh Reich and crew claiming #1 Most Added for a S.I.N. favorite, Jason Derulo and his latest single "Trumpets."

A big shoutout goes to all the stations that opened up their airwaves during Labor Day Weekend to give their Mixshow DJs a lane to expose New Music to the stations' listening audience. The fact that Mixshow weekends are so well embraced should serve as a reminder that the DJs have the ability to bring music that's generating an early buzz in the market to the stations well as the Music Meetings. The Mixshows are where some of these songs get a shot to prove their potential early on at the stations.

Sinners

A tidal wave crashes on Programmers who choose to go MIA on the Tuesday following a Holiday Weekend. If you're on vacation or something well that's one thing however when you were MIA leading into the Holiday Weekend as well, now that's a completely different story.

Rain showers soak our Label Friends who get paranoid and go into panic mode about releases buzzin' in the marketplace that they have yet to receive clearance on and then blast out the same release less than 24 hours later starting a whole different type of fire alarm. This is almost as clich as the 'leaked' record scenario.

Lightning strikes Programmers who lack patience when it comes to the development of records they believe in for their stations and audience. When these songs don't react as fast as you like that becomes the mandatory sign you should consider bailing on the single. This is especially the case with down tempo releases that take longer to develop as most programmers are already aware of and will never react as quickly as songs with tempo. If you believe it's strong enough to give it a shot you should give it a fair amount of time to develop.
