Big City launches new music list

Bauer Media's Big City Network is introducing a new music list, featuring three songs from new or returning artists.

The Upfront List will be compiled centrally and sent to 17 Big City stations across the UK, but work alongside each station's local A and B list.

Ric Blaxill, Head of Music for the Big City Network, explains: “We want to add greater variety to our established playlists and introducing new releases from new or returning artists will help us to do this. It will also provide each of the artists or groups with vital support and backing, and most importantly, the chance to get their music heard by 4.4 million listeners across the UK.”

The Upfront List will be reviewed on an on-going basis by Blaxill and a Station Programmer where new songs will be chosen for inclusion.

“We firmly believe in local stations compiling their own playlists so that they can really feel the music running through their stations and cities.

The first three songs to be included in the Upfront List and launched across the Big City Network will be: I’d Rather Be With You by Josh Radin, a new American singer and songwriter; Once by previous X Factor contestant, Diana Vickers; and Paris Nights / New York Mornings by Corinne Bailey Rae.
