About Kings Of Spins.
KINGS can tell the world about your music.
First off, my personal expertise is dance radio. I have worked in dance radio for over 30 years. Two of my success stories are still on the BBC Radio 1 schedule every week now after more than 20 years, Pete Tong, whom I managed for 20 years and the Essential Mix show which I created and produced for 8 years. KINGS was the first digital online radio promotion company starting in 2003, the rest followed our example....
