Posted on May 23, 2018

AirPlay Direct is pleased to announce that we will soon be releasing Volume 6 of our APD “Global Radio Showcase” – August, 2018.

This particular showcase will be titled “Just Folkin’ Around”, and will feature a diverse array of genres including Appalachian, Americana, Blues, Bluegrass, Celtic, Cajun, Global Roots, Indigenous, Old Time, Traditional, Singer-Songwriter, and Spoken Word.

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.

"This collection of songs will feature a variety of special deep cuts, catalog and new releases that will be great songs for any occasion when you are “Just Folkin’ Around” and enjoying life.”  ~ Lynda Weingartz, CEO - AirPlay Direct

"The AirPlay Direct Global Radio Showcase Series has been a tremendous support to our artists. Through their Bluegrass, Blues and Country showcases we have had the opportunity to promote both current and catalog artists.

We couldn’t have asked for better results, with stations from around the world downloading these songs, many entering the top 10 of the AirPlay Direct charts.

We love the broad diversity within these showcases and we are looking forward to the “Just Folkin' Around” showcase."

"In 2015 I launched a traditional radio promotion campaign for my independent release "Building a Human Being."  After mailing hundreds of CDs and several months of follow-up calls and emails I thought the project's life had reached an end.  When "No Second Coming" from that same CD was recently selected for AirPlay Direct's "Global Radio Showcase" Volume 5 - "Americana Unlimited", I felt a renewed sense of hope.  I was overjoyed when programmers at radio stations all over the world immediately began downloading literally every track from that 2015 CD.

The AirPlay Direct Eco-System levels the playing field for independent artists like myself, making it possible to track in real-time everyone who downloads my music and providing me the opportunity to build real relationships with programmers and DJs worldwide.  AirPlay Direct's "Global Radio Showcase" breathed new life into what I thought was an old CD and enabled me to build an invaluable community of support globally."
                                                               ~ Dana Cooper, Independent Artist 

The most important benefit of being on APD’s “Global Radio Showcase” is that all of the acts represented on these showcases will have a link on the Volume 5 showcase profile page that will have a direct link to each of the acts’ individual AirPlay Direct Artist Profile Release page.  This will allow the radio programmer to listen to and hopefully download a few more tracks from your whole album, or catalogue.

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; 11,000 radio station members around the world.
