Just in time for the holidays, AirPlay Direct will award $50 gift certificates for radio promotion services to 100 IBMA members in the artist, composer, manager, public relations or recording services categories. Recipients of the gift packages will be selected at random from qualifying IBMA members on December 1, 2012.
In September, AirPlay Direct sponsored IBMA’s new Momentum Awards with prize packages for award recipients in the artist categories, and co-sponsored the Artist/DJ Reception during World of Bluegrass in Nashville. Over the past three weeks, the 23rd Annual IBMA Awards Show has been downloaded by more than 1,020 radio stations globally through AirPlayDirect.com at no charge. The show is currently #4 on APD’s Top 50 Albums Chart (all genres) for the month of October, and #2 on the Bluegrass/Folk Albums chart for the same month; see http://airplaydirect.com/charts for more information.
"We continue to be impressed with the level of artist development and interaction that the IBMA strives to achieve with their members. It is the same creative philosophy we strive to apply every day at AirPlay Direct," said Lynda Weingartz, executive VP of operations.
