  • Top 40 Station Adds Unsigned track.
    Top myspace artist One Less Reason’s new track “If You Want Me” has been added to Jackson’s, MS top 40 station Y101. The Program Director Nate West heard the buzz on the band and after listening to the song he decided to add the track, which is not an easy feat today. His instincts are correct, “If You Want Me” is reacting and is a top requested song. For more information email the management.

UPDATE: One Less Reason just SOLD OUT the 800 capacity venue Hals N Mals in Jackson, MS. Now if it works in this market, by theory, it should translate in most markets.

Analysts said even acceptance by EMI could lead to regulatory difficulties.

Warner’s approach comes as EMI is battling against sliding sales of compact discs in the United States. EMI last week said it expected revenue at its recorded music business — EMI Music — to show a decline of about 15 percent in the year to March 31 compared with the previous 12-month period.Â

KOAR posted weeks ago that it looked like MTV was going to cancel TRL since kids are no longer tuning in. According to sources MTV execs have officially canned TRL and fired the people responsible for its production.

MTV just canned 250 employees and the bloodbath isn’t over yet. MTV is facing the challenges of a changing society and the new frontier of the digital age.

Recent data from Nielsen media peg TRL’s viewership at 393,000, down from almost 600,000 in 2001.

Update – When MTV heard the press leak of TRL being canned, the CEO immediately responded with an open letter stating that TRL will air ‘as always’. Meaning TRL will air until they find a replacement.
