Pay In UK Radio

UK Radio Rajar Results

Here’s one for the MDs and the marketing teams. You’re missing a trick if you just quote the figures. Remember, the agencies get everyone’s press release not just yours so they know how the game is played. To them, RAJAR results all too often mean finding…

Ride Me All Day For £3
