United Stations To Distribute 'Organic Tracks'

UNITED STATIONS RADIO NETWORKS EVP/Programming ANDY DENMARK announced today that they will begin distributing "ORGANIC TRACKS," a new acoustic-based radio program for Hot AC and AC created and produced by ACOUSTIC STORM host JEFF PARETS.
The weekly two-hour show is hosted each week by PHOENIX-based talent ZOE MOORE on BONNEVILLE Adult Hits KPKX (98.7 THE PEAK). Recent episodes of the program have included rare, acoustic performances by JOHN MAYER, DAUGHTRY, THE FRAY, INGRID MICHAELSON, SHERYL CROW, MATCHBOX TWENTY, and JASON MRAZ, along with an exclusive library of similar hits from the '80s and '90s.
According to UNITED STATIONS EVP/Programming ANDY DENMARK, "The sound of ORGANIC TRACKS is so perfect for today’s Hot AC and AC stations that it was an easy choice for our lineup. Plus, it’s a treat for us to expand our relationship with JEFF PARETS whose ear and instincts for what audiences want has always been ahead of the curve.
Creator JEFF PARETS added, "It got to the point that [there] were so many great acoustic songs and live 'unplugged' performances that didn’t fit on Classic Hits and Classic Rock stations, it just seemed that creating an additional specialty outlet was the way to go. Of course, we’re psyched that AC, Hot AC and Adult Hits stations are telling us that the time is right for a show like ORGANIC TRACKS that provides acoustic versions to refresh and support the music libraries of those formats."
