team, we have created a new metric for the music industry," said Scott

relationship with Spectrio allows us to generate the in-store plays and
report the spin totals for our charts. Working with All Access ensures
the information is available to the widest possible audience in the
music industry. The association of these three companies provides
artists a great new opportunity for exposure."

What's In-Store Music charts include Currents, Re-Currents, The Dance
Environment, Year To Date, and Holiday, and the numbers are actual
programmed plays that come from Spectrio's internal programming system.

"Spectrio is excited to help independent, new and established artists as
they ramp up their careers or seek a wider audience, by providing a
unique opportunity for exposure and promotion outside of more
‘traditional' routes," said Shawn Cash, Director of Programming at
