With the formation of Backstage Entertainment’s cutting edge technology, the Spins Tracking System (STS) has already impacted thousands of radio stations since the beginning of 2005. New Music Weekly has also been honored as “Magazine of the Year” award at the Los Angeles Music Awards. The leading music trade magazine is the #1 chart breaking publication for new music and artists who score top honors during its annual New Music Awards event held in Hollywood, California. The magazine, founded in 1999, boasts over 1500 reporting radio stations in the genres of Top40, Adult Contemporary, Country, College, Jazz and Alternative/Rock. New Music Weekly has also found success with its Future Hits compilation CDs. This multi-format music sampler enables recording artists to get their music in the hands of radio station program directors which support new artists regardless of label affiliation. In addition, New Music Weekly operates the New Music Radio Network which services its syndicated radio specials to thousands of Country and Mainstream radio stations.
NMW is proud to be the first and only award show not weighted down with the politics and corruption of the corporate world, but an award show showing the true talent which exists in the music industry today. NMW’s motivation for providing the most updated and fairly tracked radio airplay information is owed to the philosophy of radio pioneer and legend Bill Gavin, who started Gavin as a weekly tip-sheet for radio programmers in the 1950s. It wasn’t until the early 1990’s that Gavin’s philosophy was finally archived with the bureaucracy of major label politics. .thus the founding of New Music Weekly magazine.
