CEO Tom Rounds
Tom Rounds is a guy that is a straight shooter and is still doing what he loves. His website, www.radioexpress.comlists all his credentials and the list is impressive. Most will certainly remember Tom from his "American Top 40" (AT40) days and it was great to hear that he had just seen Don Bustany and all is well. Casey Kasem rounded out the terrific trio of AT40 but Tom Rounds still is the syndication genius.
Tom is not living in a time warp, another era, but is firmly planted in 2013. However, he has lived in the same house since 1969 and that consistency is refreshing!
Radio Express, Inc. is the world's leading supplier of entertainment programming to radio stations outside the United States. Founded in 1985 by industry innovator and current CEO Tom Rounds , the Company was the first to introduce barter syndication to the international radio world. Since then, it has established relationships with over 5,000 radio stations in 140 countries, creating the most extensive "network" of radio stations in the world.
Drake was seeking to install his signature Boss Radio format in the Bay Area in 1964; Jacobs recommended his protégé, Tom Rounds, for the position at KFRC in San Francisco . While at KFRC, Rounds began promoting large multi-act concerts to benefit charity and gain publicity for the station and the bands it featured.
After holding the Beach Boys Summer Spectacular at the Cow Palace in 1966, Rounds and KFRC conceived of a large outdoor festival featuring a fair atmosphere similar to the popular Renaissance Pleasure Faire . The KFRC Fantasy Fair and Magic Mountain Music Festival was held in the second weekend of June 1967 at Mount Tamalpais State Park in Marin County, California, to support the Hunters Point Child Care Center. Featuring Jefferson Airplane, The 5th Dimension, The Doors and many other acts, it drew nearly 60,000 attendees. The Fantasy Fair produced by Rounds is considered the first rock festival in history, preceding the more well-known Monterey Pop Festival by one week. Rounds left KFRC in the Fall of 1967; his decision to move beyond the restrictions of AM radio was documented on the front cover of the first issue of Rolling Stone magazine, with the headline "Tom Rounds Quits KFRC" on the upper right beside a large photograph of John Lennon
In 1969 Rounds and Jacobs formed Watermark Inc., a radio production and syndication company that created a variety of programs which it then distributed to radio stations throughout North America.
In 1990, Rounds announced the introduction of American Top 40 syndicated programming into the Soviet Union, adding that country to the list of seventy where the program was heard at the time.

A fascinating part of the ongoing involvement with Radio Express has been working with Tom Rounds, who is not just the head of this company. "TR" was one of the Poi Boys at legendary KPOI in Honolulu. He was the first Program Director of KFRC in San Francisco when it became a Top 40 station in the Drake era.
