Last Sunday at 18.00 GMT, AJK Radio launched a new feature.
Artist on the Hour – every hour, for a whole week.
Meet Tom Solomon, pictured, he approached the station via Twitter to see if we were interested in playing a few songs. He sent over four.
Alex, Founder of AJK Radio was so chuffed someone had enquired accepted, but told Tom 4 songs over one 24 hour period would turn 6 times. AS good as the songs were, Alex didn’t want the sation to sound like any other station playing the same 5 tunes over and over.
Tom, said we were in luck, they were part of an album, a DOUBLE album no less of 28 top classical crossovers with his unique take on each one.
It was set, the whole album, set for the week on the hour. Tom was our first Artist of the Hour.
What has unfolded over the last 7 days, had me (and Tom) on the edge of our seats.
Using the power of social media, we both set about spreading the word, Tom was on the radio.
So how did he do?
Friday New Charts released – Tom #1 iTunes Classical Chart
And at time of writing this #4 iTunes Vocal Album Chart.
Tom, thank you for allowing AJK Radio on the journey, (it’s only just started)
You can continue to hear Tom’s New Album “Beautiful Day” on AJK Radio “Classical Comforts” show on Sunday Mornings.
