NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — AirPlay Direct is pleased to announce the launch of their new digital distribution platform and Global Radio Charting System. A pioneer in the field of digital delivery of music and content, AirPlay Direct has, to date, delivered over 3.7 million digital packages on behalf of their members to radio stations and industry professionals around the world.
With the rollout of the new platform, AirPlay Direct has a superior look, feel and layout.
