FROM THE PUBLISHER It is hard to believe that it has been 9 years since I launched AirPlay Direct! What an amazing experience filled with memories both good and bad… such is the life of an entrepreneur. As I turn 50 yrs. old this month, I reflect upon the positive impact AirPlay Direct has had on the global independent music community and I am pleased with our successes and accomplishments. AirPlay Direct’s presence and brand in the global marketplace is growing at an extremely high rate. We are very proud that AirPlay Direct continues to deliver more Bluegrass, Folk, Americana and Blues music to radio globally than any other company in the world. AirPlay Direct currently has over 37,000 artist / label members and over 8,800 radio station members in 90+ countries globally. The March edition of the Direct Buzz will be the 24th issue of our publication. It is truly amazing to see the effect it has had, and how it has impacted so many artists’ careers…in small ways. I look forward with great anticipation to each of the issues being published. The Direct Buzz cover for March features Bloodshot Records recording artist Lydia Loveless. Lydia is an artist that “Lives on the Bleeding Edge” of music and life…certainly not your average girl next door. Put on your seat belt and take a listen… you won’t be disappointed. AirPlay Direct is pleased to announce the appointment of Lynda Weingartz to the post of CEO of AirPlay Direct. Lynda has an incredible background as a strong, professional woman in the music business, and has had a tremendous impact on the growth and direction of AirPlay Direct. As always I would like to thank the APD Executive team and all of our partners for their dedication, professionalism and on-going support. With fine regards and respect, Robert Weingartz Chairman & Founder - AirPlay Direct Publisher - the Direct Buzz Executive Director - Collective Evolution
