Seriously!? The first song played on the new Apple Beats 1 radio service is by an artist called Spring King!

.

The song, called "City," may have had it's first 'real' exposure in the U.S. of A. because of it. Have you ever heard of them before? I sure hadn't, but I dig it the most—it's a rocker! Might be my favorite song at the moment!

.

It's easy, you look at the playlist and go, "What's this song here, maybe I should look it up on the ol' Google?" You do and are blown away! Not sure it matters that it's the first song they played, but it might and we shall see. Hell, it made me look them up. Has it been serviced to you? Will you search it out? I'm definitely digging deeper, and I love the next track I am hearing.

.

Don't let Zane Lowe take OUR glory; we break the new music in America, ha ha. Just remember what I said last week: "Nielsen reported recently that terrestrial radio is the general public's number one access point for new music." So we can still pretend to be King, until the Emperor has no clothes. Full disclosure: I don't have an iPhone and haven't used the service, but I can look at a playlist...

Also big news in radio recently with the Entercom deal being approved with Lincoln Financial Media! So what does the future hold for all those stations? Constant transition everywhere: music biz, radio, television, cable, streaming and all of the above. Good luck to all the people employed at those stations. And, remember that not everyone has a smartphone and the world is in constant change, so you have that going for you. I was with a great friend last night who still has a flip phone and refuses to be sucked into the rabbit hole. It's refreshing, but I don't think he listens to the radio either.

.

Hope you have a great Fourth of July weekend with family and friends. FYI, the Charts will take a break next week, but we do have a little something for you on July 8th. Charts back July 15th.

Check out the video and hear the song; it's like magic: Spring King "City"
