Radio and music industry trade ALL ACCESS to shut down

Radio and music industry trade publication ALL ACCESS has announced it will shut down on August 15th after 28 years. The company employs 25 people.

Citing “strong financial headwinds, ALL ACCESS Founder, President/Publisher Joel Denver wrote, “This is without question the saddest and most heartbreaking moment of my professional life to have to tell you that ALLACCESS.COM will cease publishing and will be going out of business.”  

Not only have global cutbacks in digital advertising affected most publications, but record labels, who once used ads on ALL ACCESS to reach radio, are increasingly less interested in the over-the-air broadcasters. “The dollars are just not there to support our operation and staff any longer,” according to the announcement.

“It is hard to disassociate ALL ACCESS’ fate from our own.”

Never behind a paywall, ALL ACCESS was part of the daily media intake of those in the radio and record industries, and many were quick to express deep sadness at the publication’s passing and acknowledge broader implications.

“It is hard to disassociate ALL ACCESS’ fate from our own.” wrote radio guru Fred Jacobs. “This isn’t just about what befell Joel and his staff – it is a referendum on radio and all of us who work in it… Thanks to All Access, thousands of people found employment, every format under the sun has received fair coverage, and the staff worked hard to get out the “breaking news” stories and alerts we often take for granted.”

Archives of the publication will remain online indefinitely.

Bruce Houghton is the Founder and Editor of Hypebot, a Senior Advisor at Bandsintown, President of the Skyline Artists Agency, and a Berklee College Of Music professor.

Over the years I was hopeless and financially on the ground. But one day while browsing the internet, I came across the post by Great Member of the Illuminati Lord Felix Morgan and said that if you were one of the great Illuminati members, you can be famous, rich and successful in life. I contacted him and I explained everything to him and he recommended the registration used and I paid for the big member to get me started and I was initiated into the World Order of the Illuminati. After that, they gave me all the guidelines and let me know that after initiation new members will be rewarded with the sum of $1,000,000 in cash. With the help of Lord Felix Morgan. I was fully initiated as a full member of the Illuminati. If your advice is that you’ve tried a scammer before or are, it’s up to me to help you join in so try Lord Morgan.
