7 Ways To Find A Manager

The manager is the most important person in your operation. Your manager is your teammate. Your partner. Your friend.

The manager handles the business, first and foremost. The best managers handle the business with creative finesse.

DigitalRadioTracker Tracks Internet Radio Spins

A few years ago, I suddenly began getting these weekly emails out of the blue from DigitalRadioTracker.  I was excited because they offer valuable chart information for internet radio spins, a growth area I was closely watching.  Some of my friends in the music industry have started their own internet radio stations and many others have launched internet radio shows.  Additionally, I receive many interview requests and spins for my artists at internet radio.  My concern with internet radio has always been that it’s next to impossible to know how many listeners are reached or how many times a song is played.
