The following message is from the AKADEMIA promotions team:
Dear The Silvers,
It appears that congratulations are in order once again! We have been informed that your song ‘Running Away’ continued to receive an exceptional listener response in its latest month of heavy rotation on numerous radio stations. This is great news!
But that’s not all the good news to report. We recently had the opportunity to meet with program directors from the Star100 FM Radio Network. To be brief, they loved your song and have agreed to place ‘Running Away’ in heavy rotation on the following five stations in their network, effective February 1st:
WSTR Portland Oregon
WSTX Santiago, Chile
KSTR Taipei, Taiwan
WJST Johannesburg, South Africa
WSTN Lagos, Nigeria
This is another big break for us! Heavy rotation on five stations in these large metropolitan areas will bring significant added exposure for you as an artist. Congratulations on your continued success. We will continue to keep you updated on any news that we receive from the stations.
The Akademia Team
Note: In 2013 Janis and I took a trip to Africa and spent time in Kenya and Tanzania on safari with Abercrombie & Kent. At the end of the trip, we flew to Johannesburg the week after Nelson Mandela passed away and stayed a few nights.
From there we flew to Zimbabwe for another few nights to visit Victoria Falls before heading home. One of our stops was in Lagos, Nigeria which has a few funny (and some not so funny) stories about Janis and Mick’s adventures in the airport. Maybe another time!
