As an affiliate member of the Independent Broadcasters Association, we know the challenges independent broadcasters can face.  Because at Throwback Brands, WE are independent too.  We work with Ad Large Media to sell our national inventory, but without a major network backing our production, we know what it’s like to make it all work on our own.  So, our mission is to help you improve your programming, improve your sponsorship revenue with our programming, and improve the experience for your listeners.  Because if your listeners LOVE what they hear, they’re going to keep coming back.

If you’re a Classic Hits, Adult Hits, or Mainstream AC station, you know engaging your audience can be a challenge.  That is, until now!

Throwback Nation Radio is the new show to re-engage your station’s audience after dark!  With big, proven hits of the ‘80s and ‘90s, trivia and requests with Tony Lorino (Monday-Saturday) and Danny Hustle (Sundays), and PLENTY of energy, Throwback Nation Radio is the fastest growing choice among leading stations across the country.

And at Throwback Nation Radio, we know we’re more than just a show to your audience and your station as a whole.  We provide custom prep services that you can employ throughout the day, customized sponsorship packages, and debuting in 2021, an RSS feed to give your website CUSTOM CONTENT automatically.  After all, our listeners interact with our stations beyond JUST our airwaves; let’s keep that experience of content and integration going on the web too.

Throwback Nation Radio is five hours, and available via Mr. Master AIM Monday-Friday, Monday-Sunday, Saturday only, Sunday only, or a combination thereof.

So, you’re a contemporary station who wants a party on the weekends.  Mix shows feel like “TOO MUCH,” and ‘80s and ‘90s aren’t really “YOUR THING” anymore.

Enter Chris Cruise.

Chris Cruise and Throwback 2K are America’s FIRST weekly tribute to the hits of the early 2000s; the first songs by Britney Spears, Nelly, Fall Out Boy, Rihanna, and more.  Not only are they the Throwbacks that your 25-39 year old target loves… BUT NO ONE IS PLAYING THEM LIKE THIS… until now!

Requests, features, and special shout outs make Throwback 2K stand out on your airwaves as a positive that your audience will keep coming back for each week.  And just like with Throwback Nation Radio, Throwback 2K will offer additional RSS feed content for your station’s site in 2021.  For Hot AC or Top 40 stations, Throwback 2K IS IT.

Throwback 2K is a once-weekly 5 hours show that can air anytime Friday, Saturday, or Sunday between 5am-Midnight, delivered by Mr. Master’s AIM.
