Centricity Update 6/3

Posted June 3, 2011 by in Uncategorized

Greetings from the third floor.

Been an exciting time around the Centricity office as everything continues to ramp up. June looks to be a wild and crazy time with 3 CD packages, two 32 page special editions, 3 concept videos, 3 epks, a photo shoot, 2 radio add dates and much, much more on our plates.

First of all, episode two of CentricityU featuring the talents of Downhere,  is now live. Go watch it by clicking HERE. Go ahead, I’ll wait. Back? Wasn’t that great. My favorite stuff is after the music. Did you watch it all the way through?

John Mays and I head out to visit some of our radio friends next week. We are going to play music share stories and take the pulse of radio. Pray for us as there will be a lot of plane flights and restaurants. This will definitely be one of our stops.

On to the updates…
