Congratulations to all of the artists making this week's Mediabase Adds list. By the low numbers this week, it looks like radio didn't do too many new adds, but that's ok, we'll keep requesting anyway! People are paying attention to the new music and it's starting to show by these adds to reporting stations in large and major markets. Let's keep that trend going!

REMEMBER: An add does NOT guarantee air play, it simply means the station has added the song to their library. Air play is based on demand and sales, so get on the phone/internet/text and start requesting your favorites now. Most major radio stations now allow you to text or email your requests so it's not just making a phone call anymore. If you don't request, don't complain when you don't hear your favorite artist on the radio, plain and simple. These guys need our help, so let's show them we support them and their hard work. Don't depend on their side to do all the promoting. If you really love an artist, jump in there and work with them to get the word out. Your voice does make a difference and it shows in these add numbers each week. Radio is listening, we just have to keep talking. Remember though, when you do request, to be nice and respectful. Kindness and courtesy always pays off in the long run. You represent your favorite artist in an unofficial capacity when you request, so don't get mad at the DJ if they can't play it. If they say they can't, it's not their choice, it comes from upper management and even higher than that. Be kind to your DJ's, especially those that do take a chance and play your favorite song, there are still some of those left out there :-)

Just a side note: Notice the number of new artist adds this week. These numbers show that radio is listening to you. Keep requesting and get these artists added nationwide! Way to go!
