Goooood morning everybody! Welcome to the last week of July. We have a brand-new #1 this week, Shinedown “Cut the Cord.” The track moves from #4 to #1, up a whopping 215 spins— this is a nice accomplishment in only 4 weeks. The band is killing it on tour and for you motorcycle enthusiasts, see them at Sturgis, Aug fourth at Buffalo Chip. Also catch them at the Louder than Life festival in Ducktober and Aftershock. Here’s the video for the track. “Cut The Cord” had another great sales week, close to 8,000 more downloads approaching 55,000 total.  Moving #3 to #2* this week, Disturbed, “The Vengeful One” up 108 spins. The track is holding some strong sales too- over 4600 downloads this week, approaching 38,000 to date. There are only 62 spins that separate #1 and #2. Pop Evil “Footsteps” moves up a notch to #4* and the track is up 100 spins this week. Single sales this week are close to 3500, over 25,000 to date.  Watch for the band to make a move for another #1 track in the next few weeks.   Continue Reading »

Talking Radio with Scot Fox

face shotAccording to my ‘late’ Grandmother, I started imitating radio jocks when I was about 4 years old riding in the back seat of the car. I have no recollection of doing that but, as far back as I can remember, I told everyone I wanted to be on the radio. While I was in High School, I worked at the local skating rink and would always get on the mic and imitate the New Orleans radio announcers (Weerd Wayne, Pal Al, Jack Da Whack, Terry Young)

So, after High School and a very promising career in Auto Parts Retail Management (kidding), I decided to go for my dream in radio. I was living in New Orleans and picked up the phone book (remember those?) and called every radio station in the book until someone called me back. It was Terry Hickman at WTIX and he offered me a job board-opping the overnight shift for 5 bucks an hour. We had satellite jocks but the music had to be played locally. It was awesome! After I got comfortable there, I would take the satellite jock off the air, use his name (Shotgun Mark Kelly…sorry dude), and I’d do the breaks live LOL I was horrible but never got caught thankfully.

So, from that first job at WTIX, I just worked my way up through the ranks. Continue Reading »

Guitarist DJ Ashba Exits Guns N’ Roses

sixx-am-1430For a few years now, guitarist DJ Ashba has balanced his time in Guns N’ Roses and Sixx: A.M., but the rocker has just revealed that he’s decided to exit Guns N’ Roses.

In a heartfelt letter, Ashba details how he first got the call to audition for Guns N’ Roses and reflects on his time in the band with Axl Rose positively. But as many are aware, in the early stages of Sixx: A.M. they were primarily a studio band who rarely played shows, which made it more easy for him to balance his time with Guns N’ Roses. However, beginning with 2014′s Modern Vintage album, Sixx: A.M. decided to stage their first extended touring, and Ashba says Sixx: A.M. allows him to pursue his “passion for creating music.” Check out his posting in full below: Continue Reading »
