Wyoming Sound Expands Music On-Air
Wyoming Public Media
is adding an all-music service, Wyoming Sound, beginning Wednesday, August 24, 2016. The new service was made possible by a grant from the Guthrie Foundation. Wyoming Sound extends the popular Wyoming Public Radio Morning Music program 24/7. Morning Music will remain on WPR's state-wide network. Listeners who prefer hearing music throughout the day and evening now have that option.

Wyoming Sounds will emphasize Singer/Songwriters and a wide variety of styles including Acoustic, Folk, Blues, Soul, Reggae, and World music. Elements of Americana along with Wyoming and regional musicians will also be included in order to serve the growing music scene happening across the state, and to collaborate with Wyoming artists, organizations and events.

The service is dedicated to helping listeners discover new music with a significant portion of the playlists reserved for up and coming artists. The programs will be hosted by current announcers Grady Kirkpatrick, Paul Montoya, and Micah Schweizer, as well as other hosts
joining the roster. The name of the Morning Music show, 9a.m. to Noon, will change to Wyoming Sounds.

Nielsen Audio Finds Los Angeles Metro Irregularities
Nielsen Audio
has informed audio clients that they have identified irregular compliance patterns in PPM homes in the Los Angeles metro area. They conducted an extensive investigation and a Nielsen spokesperson issued a statement regarding this matter. "As part of Nielsenís ongoing quality assurance program, we identified irregular patterns in select PPM homes in the Los Angeles metro area. Following an extensive investigation we have determined that Nielsenís quality standards were not followed. Out of an abundance of caution, we removed 35 installed households which collectively represented 55 average daily in-tab persons for the first two weeks of August. This accounts for 2 percent of the average daily in-tab in the LA metro area. Combined, the affected meters contributed less than 1 percent of the quarter hours of listening for these weeks." The August 2016 Week 3, Week 4 and monthly data releases will exclude these homes. The data will release as originally scheduled.
Nielsen added "We are conducting an impact analysis of 2016 data in Los Angeles to determine what, if any, actions may be required for prior months. We will be in constant communication with our Los Angeles clients to ensure they are kept updated on the results of the impact analysis and plans moving forward. We are also investigating all other PPM markets and conducting an aggressive review of protocols and will be taking a number of steps to prevent recurrence. Nielsen is committed to upholding the highest standards of data integrity and market transparency in order to provide the most effective audience measurement solutions to meet client needs."

Paul McCartney Signs Worldwide Deal With Capitol Records
Paul McCartney has signed a worldwide recording agreement with Capitol Records, it was announced today by Capitol Music Group (CMG) Chairman/CEO Steve Barnett.

"This is genuinely exciting for me," McCartney said. "Not only was Capitol my first U.S. record label, but the first record I ever bought was Gene Vincent's 'Be-Bop-A-Lula' on the Capitol label."

This historic contract encompasses McCartney's entire body of post-Beatles work, from his 1970 McCartney album, through his decade with Wings, to his dozens of solo and collaborative works.

McCartney is currently working on a new studio album, while a comprehensive plan for the artist's catalogue is being conceived by Capitol and Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) - in conjunction with the artist and his management team - and will be implemented beginning July 2017. The catalogue moves to Capitol/UMe from Concord.

Barnett commented, "Paul McCartney's association with Capitol has long defined so much of our historic legacy, and all of us here are extremely proud and honored that he has chosen to come back home. Paul's indelible contributions to our culture are second to none, and his constant evolution as an artist and performer continues to inspire and enrich the lives of countless millions of people. We are overjoyed that Paul will be creating new music for years to come, and that Capitol will be helping to present it to the world."

Lucian Grainge, Chairman/CEO of Universal Music Group, said, "It would be simply impossible to overstate what an honor it is to welcome Paul back to Capitol. It's a homecoming of one of the greatest musical artists of all time to the label that first helped bring his incredible music to the world. Paul's astonishing career has shown no limits -- in creativity, in commercial longevity, and in its impact on people and cultures in every corner of the globe. We are thrilled at both Capitol and UMG to be able to contribute to the next chapter in Paul's extraordinary career."

Michele Anthony, UMG's EVP of U.S. Recorded Music added, "Paul's vital and legendary body of work as a solo artist remains essential, relevant and so highly in demand. We're beyond thrilled at the opportunity to put the global resources of Universal Music behind Paul's forthcoming work, as well as introducing his previous iconic albums to new generations of fans around the world."
