A huge thanks and congratulations go out to the Capitol Team for the amazing Sun, Fun, Food and Music gathering that brought members of their staff and some key Programmers together for an intimate event with J-Lo. Hosted by Jennifer Lopez at her Los Angeles residence guests enjoyed Jennifer and the Label's hospitality and got to preview music from her forthcoming 10th studio album! Capitol's Greg Thompson kicked off the festivities touching upon some of J-Lo's career highlights, the development of the album and the successful partnership she and radio have shared throughout the years. Thanks also go out to Dennis Reese, Franco Iemmello, Joe Rainey, Brien Terranova and the entire Capitol team that provided the Programmers in attendance with an opportunity to meet and take photos with J-Lo. For some it was even a chance to share their enthusiasm for one of the most well received songs previewed, the Pop driven "First Love." All in all it was an incredible, unforgettable event and on behalf of some of the programmers in attendance including Jimmy Steel, E-man, Big Boi, John Ivey, Frankie Vinci, Evan Harrison, Cindy Hill, Dave Shakes, Mikee Mike, Cat Thomas, DJ Buck, Greg Williams, Cousin Ed, Sharon Datur, Rob Miller, Todd Cavanah, Eric Bradley, Dylan Sprague and Pup Dawg... Vinny the SIN sends a special Thank You and Blessing to Capitol and J-Lo.

We keep the 'Luh' rolling for the Capitol family with a tip of our hat to Franco Iemmello as he continues the campaign at Rhythm for "I Luh Ya Papi" as the single debuts on BDS and soon on the Mediabase chart. A special thank you is extended to the Programmers that have given J-Lo and her single a well-deserved shot and are now beginning to see requests. SIN says, "Don't Sleep."

RCA's Jeff 'JR' Rizzo magically jumps from an X-Communication to a Blessing this week for the solid early development with the debut single from Magic! "Rude." A highlight of the single's potential and audience reach is easily seen in San Diego where "Rude" is getting played on 6 different stations - Top 40's KHTS & KEGY... Rhythm's Z90, Hot AC's KMYI and Alternative's XTRA & KBZT.

KISV/KKXX's J. Reed mans up and accepts being banished as a Sinner for letting too much time go since the last time he's gone over Music with the S.I.N. family. To quote J he's still "alive and kicking" and although we'll let time determine if that truly is the case we can't help but acknowledge the time he spent and the amount of music discussed, as seen in this week's Usual Suspects. A few more quality music talks like that and we may be taking J Reed out of our overnight weekend spike rotation and putting him on the road to S.I.N. redemption.

It's been a blast the last nine years having WLLD's Orlando as our co-host for the S.I.N. Awards. That being said Orlando may be in jeopardy in returning for the 10th Anniversary if he keeps slipping up. Hey O, in case you need a reminder, Vinny is still waiting for his first alert.

Storm clouds hang over Record Label Promotion Reps who go into station meetings to set-up new releases from A-List Artists and don't show any enthusiasm for the song let alone the Artist's current and previous successes at radio. If you're not willing to show any excitement or passion for the project what makes you think the Programmers are going to any enthusiasm?

Know The DJ...

DJ Jay Funk: has been rocking events and tearing down walls since the early 1990's. Representing Chi-Town (Chicago) all over the US and abroad, he has been known to have people in a frenzied state of fun and mass hysteria. Jay Funk's style is just that, both exciting and unlimited. He's more than your average DJ - he's a performer - creating his own sound, remixing live and creating a unique mix that seems to come naturally and organically.

Never one to stick to one style of music, his ability to mix everything and anything from rock, new wave, hip-hop, top 40, classic soul and dance music when performing, keeps the audience guessing and opens people's minds to different and fun music.

Priding himself of being a mixologist, he showcases every weekend on the #1 station in Chicago, WKSC 103.5 Kiss FM, 94.5 the Vibe in Las Vegas and Dallas, TX as well as events in Chicago, New York, Las Vegas, Miami, and Los Angles, CA.

Over the years, Jay Funk has played alongside some of the finest DJ talents and has opened for legendary acts such as The B-52's, Rob Base and DJ Easy Roc, legendary new wave group Anything Box, actor/producer/Grammy winner DJ Jazzy Jeff and was the choice DJ for Snoop Dogg's 2000 Birthday Bash in Chicago and for the premier of the huge 2008 hit movie, Sex In The City pre-party at the John Hancock Observatory.

In short, DJ Jay Funk's wide range of styles along with adapting to industry trends, allows him to stay a cut above the rest. He has been called the "Mr. President" of Chicago or better yet, DJ's favorite DJ. J-A-Y FUNK!!
