Benztown Debuts 'Slow Jams Pop'

February 1, 2011: Benztown Radio Networks, syndicator of the weekend Sunday Nite Slow Jams With R Dub, introduces Slow Jams Pop, also hosted and programmed by R Dub, with a more mainstream playlist for Top 40 affiliates.

"I can't tell you how many Pop PDs have showed interest in Sunday Nite Slow Jams over the years and wanted a version for their format," R Dub said. "I'm happy to say that it's here, and this new mainstream version of the show will be just as successful, if not more so, than our Rhythm show."

The original Slow Jams has more than 50 Urban and Rhythmic affiliates. The new show will also air on Sundays and include features and dedications, with such mainstream artists as Drake, Maria Carey, and Usher.
