Opry North is pleased to announce that we have formed an alliance with Mr. Shane Wilder, Program Director for the Trans-American Broadcasting Corporation based in the United States.Mr. Wilder
has developed a 4 hour daily radio program broadcast over 78 radio stations in all parts of the U.S. called "The Best of CanCountry", featuring all Canadian country artists.We have agreed to contact the artists and inform them of this very receptive market and of the details involved in submitting their material directly to Mr. Wilder
for consideration.In addition to this program Mr. Wilder
has another, " The Best of Country", which features both Canadian and American artists so any submitted material will be eligible for both programs.
These programs are very popular with their listeners, who have been requesting more from Canada's country artists.Mr. Wilder
has affirmed that 99% of material submitted does receive airplay on one or both programs and upon receipt and acceptance of any Canadian material the artists are notified immediately.Mr. Wilder
has been in the broadcasting business for 42 years and has realized that the country talent found in Canada is incredible and largely untapped until now.
