And I pose questions – 17 of them, in fact – every content creator and media executive should ask before greenlighting new media products. This is an interative process.

How and where do consumers discover new music today and does radio still play a role in that process? Today’s #TBT post is a journey back to 2021, not so long ago in real time, but for radio and records, it may seem like a much longer trip back into the past.
