This past SUNDAY (10/8), the AKRON BEACON JOURNAL did a story called "Country By Way Of NE OHIO," featuring the CLEVELAND to NASHVILLE connection. Years ago STEVE POPOVICH had much success with the CLEVELAND INTERNATIONAL label, especially with the MEATLOAF blockbuster "Bat Out Of Hell." POPOVICH later went on to head the POLYGRAM NASHVILLE division for several years. Today, CLEVELAND INTERNATIONAL is the home of Country singer and AKRON native DAVID ALLAN COE.
Also mentioned in the piece is UMG Sr. VP/Promotion BILL CATINO, who is described as a "POPOVICH disciple." BILL's son JIM, who works in A&R at SONY BMG, is mentioned in the story as well, as is manager/publisher/producer CHRISTY DiNAPOLI, another CLEVELAND native. To read the whole story, click here.
