Wind In Your Hair” b/w “Crazy River” makes NACC Top Folk Adds! Great news from North American College and Community radio!

We wanted to share the great news that Steve Louw’s single grabbed a coveted spot on the NACC Top 5 Folk Adds Chart this week, tying for #2!

This is a great accomplishment, because there are dozens upon dozens of releases going for adds every week (and only 5 spots!). This is also great, because making the charts is harder for singles, as many stations prefer to save those spots for full albums/eps, so even singles by established artists or on big labels are fighting for a spot.

Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He served in the military for five years, then spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He was the Content Editor for Rhythm Online, South Africa's first online music store, from 2006 to 2012. He ran Mabu Vinyl, the iconic music store seen in the Oscar-winning "Searching For Sugar Man" film from 2013 to 2019. His voice could be heard on the streaming radio station All Jazz Radio where he hosted the Vagabond Show from 2012 to 2019. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including www.rock.co.za which he founded in 1999.
