Major Blessings go out to Charlie Walk, Gary Spangler and the Republic Top 40 Squad for the explosive impact with Taylor Swift "Shake It Off" as over 100 stations jump onboard in less than 24 hrs after the single's release... a song that is clearly destined to be a #1 Pop record.

Def Jam's Rick Sackheim, Mike Chester, Nicki Farag, Keith Rothschild and team take a walk on the Saints side grabbing the baton from Noah and Maness as they bring Jeremih's #1 Rhythm single "Don't Tell 'Em" to the Top 40 airwaves with the song drawing support from over 180 stations as it heads Top 20 and is sure to be a monster at the format.

Congratulations go out to S.I.N. Award Winner Kevin Akitake and wife Lisa on the birth of their daughter Katy Kim Akitake - born July 9, 2014. Hey Kevin, needless to say if you can't make this year's event you definitely have a good excuse.

A Blessing goes out to long time S.I.N. friend Pat Monaco who kicked off the week (8/18) celebrating his Birthday and took things up a notch as he and Debra Luacrello tie the knot to close out the week (8/23).

Dark clouds loom over Programmers who display a lack of patience after jumping on a record they believe in but then second guess themselves if they don't see an immediate reaction. Hey guys have we forgotten that we've been in a flooded marketplace the entire year? Songs rarely show immediate re-action, usually needing some time to develop which is something we all should be familiar with and prepared to embrace. If you jump on a record because you believe in it for your station and audience you owe it to yourself to give enough time to see it through.

Lightning strikes the auction house as we continue to see a lot of "activity" on new records but not as much activity when it comes to actual airplay. Posting station call letters just to make it look like something is going on continues to be a practice that makes people question if a record really has potential, not to mention a waste of time.
