Most will certainly remember Tom

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
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
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.
