AirPlay Direct is pleased to announce that we will soon be releasing Volume 2 of our APD “Global Radio Showcase” – Bluegrass on November 1st, 2016.

“Due to the excellent response to Volume 1, and at the request of both our global radio programmer members and our artist / label members, AirPlay Direct is excited to now create and release Volume 2 of the APD “Global Radio Showcase” Series, this time in the genre of Bluegrass.

If you have something very special, a ‘Best of Breed’ song that can compete with the best, this is a phenomenal opportunity for you to share your music worldwide.

Everyone around the globe that supports bluegrass will be able to enjoy special deep cuts, catalog and new releases they may have never heard of before,” says Lynda Weingartz, CEO - AirPlay Direct.

Volume 1 of APD’s “Global Radio Showcase” Series – Americana was released last month and is doing extremely well. AirPlay Direct’s 10,000 global radio members loved it… and are anxiously awaiting Volume 2 – Bluegrass.

AirPlay Direct is pleased to now open submissions for Volume 2 of our APD “Global Radio Showcase” Series – Bluegrass.

"This program 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 Breed” compilation to present artists, and for radio programmers to discover new music they may not have been exposed to before," explains Robert Weingartz, AirPlay Direct / Collective Evolution. “We are very excited about our new APD “Global Radio Compilation” Series. This creates an entirely new compilation distribution method that allows the artists to not just present a single, but their album or entire catalogue to APD’s Global Radio Members.”

The most important benefit of being on APD’s “Global Radio Showcase” is that all of the acts represented on these compilations will have a link on the Volume 2 compilation profile page that will have a direct link to each of the acts’ individual AirPlay Direct artist profile page. This will allow the radio programmer to listen to and hopefully download a few more tracks from your whole album, or catalogue.

Live showcases can be “very” advantageous, depending upon who is setting up the showcase, where it is, the cost, and most importantly who shows up. We regularly present our client’s in live showcase venues, when it makes sense. This is a totally different strategy and approach to “showcasing” in the global business of music in 2016.

This is a FREE opportunity for all AirPlay Direct members to have the chance to earn the opportunity to present and “showcase” their music to all of AirPlay Direct’s Global Radio Programmers; 10,000+ radio station members around the world. There is NO FEE TO SUBMIT for these compilations for AirPlay Direct members. Keep in mind, these compilations are not only for new releases / songs, but also for cool, deep catalogue cuts.

APD’s “Global Radio Showcase” Volume 3 will be Blues. We will be announcing the new submission dates very soon!

This series was developed and will be managed by AirPlay Direct’s, Collective Evolution.
