Train, Spotset partner on radio vignettes marking show's 40 years
15, 2011) It's been the hippest trip in America since 1971. Soul Train,
the longest, continuous, first run syndicated program in television
history, is celebrating 40 years this year. Soul Train Holdings has
created original radio vignettes celebrating the musical impact of the
show and their legendary guests.
Through :30 and :60 radio vignettes on selected radio stations, Soul
Train will spotlight its long-standing relationship with generations of
musical artists and American audiences. Memphis TN-based Spotset Radio
Network is the exclusive provider of Soul Train Radio and will
distribute the show through their advertiser-customized unwired national
"We've incorporated the best sound bites, greatest musical performances,
the distinctive voice of Don Cornelius, the unforgettable Soul Train
sound signatures and they're all perfectly suited for radio," explains
Kenard Gibbs, Partner/CEO of Soul Train Holdings. Spotset Radio CEO
Howard Robertson added, "Rarely, can advertisers combine their own brand
equity with one of the most iconic and enduring brands in entertainment
history. It's a perfect storm of advertising opportunity."
Unlike traditional syndicated radio features that are exclusively placed
on one network affiliate per market, Soul Train Radio will air on
America's top Urban AC and Urban Oldies stations (two or three stations
deep in some cases) in the markets specifically tailored to sponsoring
advertisers' needs. This thorough coverage and complete flexibility is
synonymous with unwired networks that Spotset Radio has provided for
advertisers including: General Mills, Nationwide Insurance, the U.S.
Navy, the Tennessee Lottery and many others.
Soul Train Holdings was created following the acquisition of the iconic
franchise and catalog of more than 1100 hours of archival footage from
Don Cornelius Productions in June 2008 by Inter Media Partners and
Madvision Entertainment and is part of Vibe Holdings, LLC. For more
