Maybe Jim will "fix" PO, but I have no reason to change.

So... I'm not going to put the specifics on blast publicly here out of professional courtesy, but I just had an email exchange with Jim, and they are offering very generous discounts for those moving from PrimeCuts to PO. Good enough that I'm willing to deal with their clunky downloader app. If anyone else is interested -- [email protected] . (Not sure if he'll offer you a discount if you didn't have a recent PrimeCuts subscription).

Looks like Jim might be bailing on the "Hits Now" ....

PRESS RELEASE

Promo Only Welcomes Jim Weisz to its Sales & Marketing Team
PrimeCuts Regional Manager joins Promo Only
They ran into some issues with licensing and weren't going to be able to resolve them quickly. From what I'm told, the offer from Promo Only came quickly, and let's be honest... you can't blame Jim for not entertaining it.

I agree .. and it will probably be a better longer term solution since the foundation is in place and he can work the processes.

Indeed. I spoke with Jim this morning and he and PO are both working diligently to make things happen quickly and smoothly for PrimeCuts subscribers who'd like to switch. Although he's pushing their Audio Silver package as the most similar to what we got with PrimeCuts, I signed on for the Pool Platinum service which includes audio and video ($990/year, prepaid). I'm excited to now be getting some of the formats that PrimeCuts wasn't great at (Tropical Latin and Dance, as examples).

Gents - Merry Christmas! I'm taking a break in my office from the madness of all the company in my house.

I have an iDJPool question: do they have explicit versions of songs as well as clean/radio on the full sub?

Separate question: does the CountryDJPool subscription include Billboard Hot 100 / Top 40 stuff, or just STRICTLY country? It appears from the site that regular Pop/Rock is included in addition to country... just curious as I've always had a "backup" subscription in the rare event a song gets missed... used to have PrimeCuts weekly with "Top 40 only" Promo Only as a backup. Now that I have full Promo Only, the $10/month (1-year prepay) CountryDJPool looks like a good backup option. (Not as worried about missing an Urban or Club track).

Thanks!

1. Yes on the explicit songs (if there is one) and conversely, almost every explicit has a counterpoint clean or radio edit.

For example, here is Mo Bamba ...

2. Not sure on the Country version, but I would think you would NOT get Hot 100/Top 40 that were under Urban, Latin or Dance .. just those in Country, Pop or Rock

So since PrimeCuts closed I moved to Promo Only... found out you do not get the new releases as fast. A lot of time I would have songs before they became mainstream hits... Not Anymore...
Are you downloading weekly Express Audio or just monthly releases?

I def don't like it as much as I did Prime Cuts. It was so simple just to go in every Wednesday and download one folder with everything in it that I needed. I wish I knew if there was a way to do that, or which listing to click on that would give me something similar in their downloader program.

What song(s) did you not get as soon as you would've liked?
