January  19, 2016

Hey Everyone,

Happy New Year! I trust everyone is off to a rocking (if sad) start. We can't believe the amazing musicians we've lost already. There are so many memories of the great music that was made. (dancing to "Fashion" " turn to the left"...). I associate the Eagles with cruising, as in driving without a clear destination and no need to be anywhere else. On a positive note, Happy Birthday, Dolly who is 70.

We have a new enhancement to our retail services that we want to share, as well as some new stores...

NEW BROADTIME TOUR SUPPORT 

As we look to creative ways, to drive more attention to artists and releases at retail, we contemplated the markets where we have website and kiosk customers and the map gives us some really good (and growing) coverage of the country. 

See Map below and interactively on our Tour Support page. 

So, in addition to our tagging and display of videos, banners, and digital signage, we can create concert calendar events in the markets, and create additional signage and banners, and event tagging.

An individual Event for each show will be created and placed on the calendar of each Record Store within the touring market invoking an EVENT tag to be placed on each release of the artist. The tour dates will also be highlighted on The Home Page and Artist Page of each applicable site an Kiosk. (as well as New Release, and feature item pages)

Broadtime will (optionally) create and provide an individual animated Kiosk screen saver sign and banners for each Record Store located within the touring market calling out the specific local date and venue. These will rotate when station is idle - More Info: BROADTIME TOUR SUPPORT 

We will add in Tour support on our proposals by default for a modest increase, to cover the cost of the dozen or so banners, signage, and event creation we will undertake. It's optional of course, for some titles it may make more sense to run as we do today.

However, the impact and improved exposure in the touring markets will pull in more and more fans to stores and shows.

THE SHRINE - Rare Breed

THE SHRINE - Rare BreedTHE SHRINE - Rare Breed - Century MediaTHE SHRINE - Rare Breed
Venice Beach, California's purveyors of Psychedelic Violence, The Shrine release their Century Media Records debut, Rare Breed. Oozing with old-school flair, punk aggression and unbridled rock 'n' roll fury; The album was produced by Dave Jerden (the venerated knobsman behind such classics as Alice In Chains' Dirt, Jane's Addition's Nothing's Shocking, Social Distortion's self-titled, The Offspring's Ixnay On The Hombre and Eno/Byrne's My Life In The Bush of Ghosts) and recorded through the very amp that Greg Ginn recorded Black Flag's Damaged on, Rare Breed exists in a space that once was bleeding with razor sharp lines separating punks, metal heads and hippies, where a violent clash in the parking lot of the Cuckoo's nest was inevitable.
