BENZTOWN’s internationally syndicated SUNDAY NIGHT SLOW JAMS and WEEKNIGHT SLOW JAMS show has signed its 102nd affiliate. The three stations that affiliated the show concurrently and tied for the distinction of 100th Slow Jams affiliate are KKST/ALEXANDRIA, LA, KCLD/ST. CLOUD, MN and KAJM/PHOENIX.
Dozens of industry executives and Slow Jams artists joined SUNDAY NIGHT SLOW JAMS Host/Creator, R DUB! at SLOW JAMS’ headquarters in SAN DIEGO last THURSDAY for a blowout celebration party -- complete with a taco truck, a live performance from AL B. SURE, a ribbon-cutting for SLOW JAMS’ new studio, and champagne toast.
R DUB! said, “I can’t tell you how humbling it was to be in the company of so many amazing programmers, record execs, syndication professionals and artists last THURSDAY night. This was above all a ‘thank you party,’ to show gratitude to all of the great people who helped Slow Jams get to 100. Not a day goes by that I don’t stop and appreciate all the folks who contribute to the success of Slow Jams, especially our amazing affiliate Program Directors.”
R DUB! continued, “One of the best feelings in the world is to watch a new affiliate put SLOW JAMS on and instantly see measurable growth, both in numbers and sheer listener passion for the station and the product. I don’t care if you’re in market 1 or market 301 --we’re going to work together and win together. Both SUNDAY NIGHT SLOW JAMS and the weeknight version are products that create real listener loyalty, high passion, and measurable tune-in occasions. How many radio programs today can really be classified as ‘can’t miss’ programming? This is one of them. Week after week, night after night, females make it a point to tune into SLOW JAMS, not as a ‘convenience’, but as a necessity, and the numbers show that.”
FUSION RADIO NETWORKS VP/Affiliate Sales MARK WILSON added, "SUNDAY NIGHT SLOW JAMS is an undeniably effective brand. Our shows are delivered in multiple formats and in weekend or weekday dayparts. This strategy opens the lane for diversity among our affiliates. The continued distribution growth of Slow Jams reflects that diversity and R DUB's ability to form a lasting connection with the listeners."
