We’ve come a long way over the years says David Wiltsher, Founder and CEO of Radio Pluggers. We knew when we began, that what we were creating was unique and very special and we also knew, that there was a massive whole in the market and after several bad experiences with pluggers myself, we decided to create and build real contacts with real people at real radio stations and media outlets worldwide.
Nowadays it’s great we achieved that, though is was and will always continue to be a lot of hard work but it’s well worth it! We have built and continue to build incredible contacts and friendships with so many stations and media outlets worldwide from Miguel at Kiss Fm in Portugal to iHeart in the USA, as well as loads of BBC contacts worldwide and others stations as far a field as Thailand, Australia, Russia and the Caribbean.
Our team has grown too. I’m so proud of our Country Managers like PJ in the USA. He’s such a great asset to our team a cool guy who loves his music. To Wladimir Marotschkin in Russia, a guitarist and fantastic part of our team and Udo in Germany who are like myself and my Studio Manager, adamant to provide and continue to build the best and most powerful radio promotion service on the planet. It feels great we are worldwide and we love that! We’ve grown, our team has grown, but more importantly the service we offer has grown! Who’d have thought we’d have over 24,000 contacts today exciting times here at Radio Pluggers and still growing.
It’s lovely to think back to the days at the very start, along side my Co-Founder, when we embarked on this journey, that we have created one of the coolest companies on the planet, we love that and we love what we do! And, we are very good at it!
We are so lucky we have the most incredible artists and brands on our roster. Over time, we’ve built so many relationships with so many great musicians from Romina Johnson who went to No. 2 in the UK charts with the Artful dodger remix of Moving Too Fast, to American Rappers like 7 Tha Great, to Kelley Deal of The Breeders and Carl at Mosa Records in Spain – a true friend! I feel very humbled to think of where we came from to where we are now and to think of where we are going but way more importantly than that what we are able to do for musicians, even brands all around the world. That’s why we get love and that feels good! I still get a massive buzz from hearing one of our records being played on the radio, and that, like radio pluggers, is here to stay 🙂
