Since 2009, Robb Haagsman [former music director at WDBM - Michigan State University] & Rupam Sofsky [former music director at WWVU - West Virginia University] have worked together, promoting artists at CMJ / NACC College & FMQB / Commercial Specialty Radio formats. The duo boast an unrivaled track record of breaking artists at the College & Commercial Specialty formats, jointly sharing more #1 charting CMJ 200 releases than any other radio promotion team!
A key part of Shine On's success is Spurge, who is no stranger to the radio world, previously DJing at his college station in North Carolina before numerous Music Industry jobs in New York City. He joined the team in May 2017.
In 2016, Shine On scored success at College Radio for artists like King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard [#1], Andrew Bird [#1], LVL UP [#1], Conor Oberst [#1], Hinds, of Montreal, Bjork, The Head & The Heart, Deap Vally, Yeasayer, La Sera, Explosions In The Sky, Cullen Omori, Yuck, Mothers, Eleanor Friedberger, La Sera, Kadhja Bonet, Hope Sandoval, Shearwater, The Coathangers, Audacity, Lindstrom, Diarrhea Planet, Mogwai, & more!
In 2015 - with a different radio firm, at the time - the trio spent a whopping 28 out of a possible 47 weeks at #1 on the CMJ Radio 200 Chart!!! [For context, the team in second place only boasted nine weeks out of a possible 47.]
In 2015, while at a previous firm, the trio pushed the following artists to #1 on the CMJ Radio 200 Chart: Sleater-Kinney [#1 performing CMJ release of 2015!], Beach House [5 weeks at #1, longer than any other release], The Alabama Shakes, Grimes, Father John Misty, Thee Oh Sees, Protomartyr & King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard.
Let Robb, Rupam & Spurge put their years of joint experience into bringing your release to radio success!
