These Showcases are for Best of Breed songs and musical portraits. There will be “superior” songs, special deep cuts, or some of your favorite singles.

The Global Radio Showcase was created and launched at the consistent request of our members… oddly enough, both artists / labels, and radio programmer‘s kept asking for a best of “Best of Breed” showcase to present artists, and for radio programmers to discover new music they may not have been exposed to before.

An important benefit of APD’s “Global Radio Showcase” is that all of the artists represented on these showcases have a link on the APD Showcase Profile Release page that will link to each of the artist’s individual AirPlay Direct Artist Profile Release page. This allows you the “radio programmer”, to listen to more of the artists’ music and hopefully download a few more tracks from their whole album, or catalogue.

The opportunity for all AirPlay Direct members to have the chance to earn their spot to present and “showcase” their music to all of AirPlay Direct’s Global Radio Programmers; 11,000+ radio station members around the world... priceless. There is NO FEE to submit for these compilations for AirPlay Direct radio /label members. Keep in mind, these compilations are not only for new releases, but also for very cool, deep catalogue cuts as well.

Executive Producers: Robert & Lynda Weingartz

“Robert, you should be very proud of what you have created with AirPlay Direct. You not only dreamed of it, but actually created a whole new way of delivering and promoting catalog music to the global music industry that we had never seen before. No one in history has ever accomplished this, and you should be very humbled by this major achievement. More importantly, I am, and the industry as a whole should be very grateful to you for all the opportunities you have created and now made possible for all of us in the ‘New Music Industry of 2017’. Thank you my friend.” ~ Carl Jackson, 3 Time Grammy Winner
