Congratulations to all of the artists making this week's Mediabase Adds list. Lots of good adds this week, numbers look pretty good. This means people are paying attention to the new music and it's starting to show by these adds to reporting stations. 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.

YOU are the difference so keep those requests coming in! Keep talking about your favorite music on social media and through word of mouth. People don't know about it if you don't talk about it.
