Quote of the Day:

People are really scared to put themselves out there cause its really scary to face rejection.

Dani Cimorelli
Cimorelli

The countdown has begun, in one month Radio Disney will pull the plug at 23 of their 24 stations. While the company is putting a positive spin on their focus towards digital distribution you can’t help but wonder what the net effect will be? Will the handlers of Taylor Swift and One Direction be able to justify sending their top tier artists to a internet streaming station? (Pictured above: The first Radio Disney Van design, 1998)

New gig! Megan & Liz will be hosting the video series This Week in the Nation. The bi-weekly segments will be featured on the My Country Nation digital channel and include they’re take on music, fashion, gossip, and maybe even cool websites (hint, hint). Check out the trailer on YouTube.

Coming off an exciting weekend at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Charli XCX drops a new video for her latest single, Break the Rules from her sophomore album, Sucker. The video accompaniment for the rebel anthem features cameos from Rose McGowan as well as gal-pal Kitten front-woman Chloe Chaidez.

TwinCities.com has a review of DigiFest at the MN State Fair. For the most part, it reflects a lot of my opinions regarding what you get in 3 hours – “a nearly nonstop stream of hairdos, skinny jeans and exposed abs parading out to sing or rap a few songs, primarily (poorly performed) cover versions of current pop hits.” One interesting aspect that stood out in this writeup was the fact that the reviewer didn’t even mention Before You Exit? It seems lately the group and it’s management has been making rather poor choices and rubbing fans, the press, publicists and concert promoters the wrong way.

Normani Hamilton wore Stella & Jamie at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards! The Fifth Harmony singer showed her style in her Versailles Long Sleeve Dress in Cool Grey.

Happy Birthday Elias, Research Director makes statement about Radio Disney station sale, Kiersey Clemons in the studio with Pharrell, Hilary Duff to perform at T.J. Martell’s 15th Annual Family Day, How To Build A Better Boy ranks #1 cable telecast

August 20th, 2014

Happy Birthday! Today Elias celebrates his 7th Birthday.

All Access Music Group has the first in-depth article on the Radio Disney station sale based on statements from Research Director, Inc. The popular radio ratings experts basically nailed it on the head by saying “Their attempt to play music on AM stations, much of which was already available on the FM dial, certainly limited their available audience.” All you have to do is look at the past and you’ll see that at one time there was something unique. For example here’s the Radio Disney Top 30 from August 28, 2005. The songs “already available on the FM dial” at that time are in bold.

1. Hilary Duff – Wake Up
2. Crazy Frog – Axel F
3. Akon – Lonely
4. Mr. C, The Slide Man – Cha Cha Slide
5. Jesse McCartney – Beautiful Soul
6. Hampton the Hamster – Hamster Dance
7. Bowling For Soup – 1985
8. Kelly Clarkson – Behind These Hazel Eyes
9. Hilary and Haylie Duff – Our Lips Are Sealed
10. Aly & AJ – Walking On Sunshine
11. Aly & AJ – Do You Believe In Magic
12. Gwen Stefani feat. Eve – Rich Girl
13. Kelly Clarkson – Breakaway
14. Kelly Clarkson – Since U Been Gone
15. The Click Five – Just The Girl
16. Hilary Duff – Come Clean
17. B5 – Dance 4 You
18. Hilary Duff – Fly
19. Cheetah Girls – I Won’t Say (I’m In Love)
20. JoJo – Leave (Get Out)
21. Kelly Clarkson – A Moment Like This
22. Weezer – Beverly Hills
23. Cheetah Girls – Cinderella
24. Rihanna – Pon De Replay
25. Aly & AJ – No One
26. Raven – Backflip
27. Bowling For Soup – Almost
28. Gwen Stefani – Cool
29. Avril Lavigne – Sk8er Boi
30. Bowling For Soup – I Melt With You

*Note many of these songs had success on the FM dial but had fallen out of Top 40 rotation, such as songs still being played that were released in 2002 – “A Moment Like This” by Kelly Clarkson and “Ska8er Boy” by Avril Lavigne.

Now this could be very interesting! Pharrell and Kiersey Clemons snap a selfie before heading into the recording studio.

Pitbull, Hilary Duff and Timeflies are coming together to perform at T.J. Martell’s 15th Annual Family Day on September 28th at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Additional guests and performers are expected to be announced shortly. Tickets are now on sale!

Family Day is one of the music industry’s signature events providing a spectacular day full of fun games, carnival activities and food to raise money for leukemia, cancer and AIDS research. Having steadily grown into one of the Martell Foundation’s most successful events, Family Day has raised over $5 million for Martell-funded research at twelve hospitals across the country

The premiere of the Disney Channel’s original movie How To Build A Better Boy on Friday night was the night’s #1 cable telecast.

7pm CST – So You Think You Can Dance: Top 6 Perform + Elimination (FOX)
The Top 6 dancers—Casey Askew, Zack Everhart Jr., Jacque LeWarne, Jessica Richens, Valerie Rockey and Ricky Ubeda—perform with All-Stars from previous seasons, but two more contestants are eliminated. Christina Applegate is the guest judge. Also: Rixton perform “Me and My Broken Heart.”

7pm CST – Young & Hungry: Young & Getting Played (ABC Family)
Yolanda’s son visits in the wake of a breakup and takes an interest in Gabi, but Yolanda prefers that he date Sofia. Elsewhere, Caroline temporarily moves in with Josh, giving him a glimpse of what their lives would be like together.

7:30pm CST – Mystery Girls: Death Rose (ABC Family)
Holly’s convict pal gets released from prison, and Holly wants to help clear her name, so she seeks assistance from a real detective.

8pm CST – America’s Got Talent: Results (NBC)

Radio Disney to go off-the-air

August 14th, 2014

Yesterday, Radio Disney announced that it will be selling 23 of their 24 radio stations on September 26th. This departure from broadest radio reflects the companies plans to move in the direction of digital distribution via the Radio Disney, ShowMobile, Slacker, Harman’s Aha Radio and TuneIn Apps. As a result, 184 people will lose their jobs in local markets.

In all honesty, I can’t begin to express how much this news bothers me. My mind is literally spinning about what I should say regarding the impact it will have on the industry as a whole and what I believe went wrong. However, at this time I’d like to take a few days to let the news sink in before any comments or criticism. What I will say is that yesterday wasn’t a good day for anybody, including Radio Disney’s General Manager, Phil Guerini who was the one who had to pull the trigger with the end result effecting all of the current local employees as well as former employees who’ve sacrificed so much for the station. At this point it feels like all has been lost. Let’s hope things can only go up from here.

6pm CST – A Cinderella Story (ABC Family)
Pop princess Hilary Duff plays against type as a neglected high-school student who meets her prince at a Halloween ball.

8pm CST – Spy Kids 2: The Island Of Lost Dreams (Disney Channel)
Brother-sister junior agents battle a pair of rival spy kids while searching for a mad scientist on an isle filled with mutated creatures. A fun, high-energy sequel with dazzling effects.

8pm CST – Step Up 3 (ABC Family)
A college freshman (Adam Sevani) from NYU teams up with a gritty, tight-knit group of street dancers in hopes of winning a potentially life-altering competition against some of the world’s best hip-hop dancers.
