Jacobs Media Celebrates 40 Years Of 'Stairway To Heaven'
November 7, 2011 at 12:33 PM (PT)
TOMORROW, NOVEMBER 8th is the 40th anniversary of "Stairway to Heaven," and as a company that's committed to Rock Radio, JACOBS MEDIA decided to have a good time with this major milestone.
Pres. FRED JACOBS told ALL ACCESS, "It starts with a 3:38 mashup of the song that blends together 24 different versions of 'Stairway,' from DOLLY PARTON to TINY TIM. (Yes, the ZEPPELIN original starts and finishes our mashup.) BILL JACOBS pulled the segments and production guy extraordinaire, BOB MALATESTA, produced it."
JACOBS also produced a video of the song that features the names of the artists in the mashup -- although they couldn't identify three of them! It was produced by TIM DAVIS.
JACOBS adds, "RALPH CIPOLLA built an incredible infographic that stations can use on their websites and FACEBOOK pages. It tells the 'Stairway' story." You can check that out here.
"All these assets have gone or will go to our clients and FOF's (Friends of Fred)," noted JACOBS. "We're hoping to hear good stuff on the radio tomorrow.
If non-JACOBS stations are interested, they can contact Bill@JacobsMedia.com and see if it's available in their market.
