Goood morning everybody!  I remember the first time that Mike Jacobs played me the new Offspring track,  I said to both David and Mike Jacobs that this is a #1 record, and this record holds up with any of the older Offspring hits…and today…”Coming For You” moves 2 to 1* in its 10th week on the chart.  The project kicked off at the Radiocontraband convention in January.  This was a team effort across the board.  Moving up a notch from 3 to 2*, Pretty Reckless “Follow Me Down,” up 41 spins and 68 spins from #1. This would give the band their 3rd #1 single in a row from “Going to Hell.”  Moving up from 6 to 4*, The Zac Brown Band, “Heavy is the Head” f/Chris Cornell.”  With power rotation love from the Cumulus Rock stations, the track is up a whopping 362 spins.  Watch for the track to make it’s move for #1 in the next couple weeks.  There’s no question that is where it’s going to land.   Continue Reading »
