INTERVIEW with JON FLANAGAN who started RADIO & RETAIL PROMOTIONS after having worked at several Major Labels where he saw Talented Bands & Musicians get left behind without the individual attention needed to ‘break’ a new Band / Artist, especially by the Radio Team.
MUSIC CONNECTION’s Bernard Bauer:
” Jon, what stage of the process is best to contact Radio Promoters ? ”
JON FLANAGAN: ” We like to be contacted as early as possible, even before the recording & artwork are finished ! Song Intros & Images can be adjusted to increase Marketing Exposure if we all agree. I like to look over the whole project and make sure it’s as professional as possible, I know what Music Professionals need to see to take a project seriously. I offer to act as a Consultant before the launch to Radio, at No Extra Charge, It’s Included in Your Radio Campaign !
I have created a company specifically to help developing artists who need the attention my experienced staff & I can give them.
We customize each campaign based on an artist’s individual needs.
During a National or Regional Campaign or goal is not only to attract Radio Listeners and Consumers, but also the Music Industry.
The Tactics used for Well Known Bands can be the reverse of the best tactics to promote a New Artist.
We can also Test Market a Single BEFORE the music is completely finished !
Thanks Bernard ! ”
