More About New Music Weekly Awards
New Music Weekly’s motivation for providing the most updated and fairly tracked radio airplay information is owed to the philosophy of radio pioneer and legend Bill Gavin, who started Gavin as a weekly tip-sheet for radio programmers in the 1950s. It wasn’t until the early 1990’s that Gavin’s philosophy was finally achieved with the bureaucracy of major label politics, thus the founding of New Music Weekly magazine.
New Music Awards administered an “open ballot” by which subscribers, music industry executives, radio programmers, and music fans have the opportunity to vote for their favorites. NMW is proud to be the first and only award show not weighted down with the politics of the music business, but an award show showing the true talent which exists in the music industry today.
