I cannot remember if I wrote about Mediaguide in the BoMuse News, but I do know that I told many of my musician friends with CDs about the importance of sending their work to Mediaguide. It was an automated monitoring service that kept track of airplay of individual tracks on a great majority of radio stations – an important service for those of us who have worked hard to get our music out there. For the time being the Mediaguide Web site is still up as if nothing went wrong and you can view it here to get a better idea of what they were all about.
Unfortunately, as of March 1, they will cease monitoring, and you can read a brief article about that at Radio-Info.com. I will keep readers up to date with developments regarding the replacement of this service as I receive news of them.
I am so close to having the new sit finished that I just had to replace the old one. It has most of the key information, and will be complete very soon, probably by the end of this month (February).
I attended this year’s Jazz Education Network (JEN) Conference, and was glad that I did. When the International Association for Jazz Education (IAJE) collapsed the president Mary Jo Papich pulled together several other educators to organize a new organization to support Jazz Education. You can read my posts from the conference in the Newsletter section of the Massachusetts Associationn for Jazz Education (MAJE) Web-site.
