CATALOG MUSIC IS THE “NEW” MUSIC OF 2020

Posted on June 3, 2020

May was another record setting month for AirPlay Direct as global radio continues to search for and download more music than ever before.


“As new music release schedules are delayed, and continue to slow down dramatically, catalog music has become the ‘new music’ of 2020.” states Lynda Weingartz, CEO – AirPlay Direct.  “Keep in mind, that if someone has never heard a song from your catalog before, then it is a brand new release to them. The fact is, that when DJ’s don’t have access to your music, they can’t play it. Even great recordings have often fell by the wayside in the past for lack of effective global radio distribution. Now everything has changed.”


The obvious and relevant question for all artists and labels is, “Do you have a global radio strategy for 2020? If not, you may want to ask yourself… why not?

According to Alligator Records President, Bruce Iglauer, “AirPlay Direct has become an absolutely essential part of Alligator Records’ worldwide promotional efforts. AirPlay Direct allows us to deliver music by our artists to radio stations large and small around the globe. As a result of their outstanding service, we’re able to make a  much greater worldwide radio impact than ever before."



Iglauer, further states, “AirPlay Direct has proven to be ‘the solution for us’. In using APD’s service to make the Alligator Records catalog available to radio stations and programmers globally, we have saved thousands of dollars in shipping fees and increased our global radio digital footprint significantly."
