In the twenty-four years that I worked in the music industry, I listened professionally to many thousands of works of music. Of these, I discovered hundreds of truly outstanding, yet unknown recordings. In my opinion, many of these unknown recordings contain some of the best music I have ever heard.
Unfortunately, even though this body of terrific, little-known music represents thousands of innovative, well written, well performed songs, virtually all of them have disappeared from our culture, unheard by more than a relative handful of people.
There are many reasons for this situation, but by far the most significant one is that, as the number of recordings has increased dramatically over the past 25 years, the number of recordings aired on commercial radio stations has plummeted. Presently, few artists ever have their music aired on any of the country’s most popular radio stations.
