Tune in and turn up

Happy New Year 2012 from the staff and writers that encompass the Titel Media family.  We thank you for the strong readership and support in 2011. We hope to make 2012 an even stronger year with some changes and additions to our offerings. More on that as we roll into the new year. In the meantime, we look forward to the usual market weeks, the further integration of social into everything now, and the Euro 2012 tournament (most important).

As an end of year 2011 wrap up, we asked various friends and industry insiders to give us a view into the music they they listened to 2011. The focus was not on compiling a best music poll for 2011, but more to get a sense of the diverse musical interests of those in the community. Take a moment and read through their picks – the lists are a mixed bag of singles, albums and more.

ps: the above image from the great I Love You magazine has nothing to do with New Year’s 2012, but everything to do with my favorite magazine cover… from 2010.

Again, Happy New Year 2012 to all… click below for more…
