 Burton Cummings, the Former Lead Singer, Songwriter and Voice of 'The Guess Who' and Renowned Solo Artist Whose Songs Include "American Woman," "These Eyes," "No Time," "Share The Land" and "Stand Tall," Partners With the Y Combinator Startup bop.fm to Launch Burton Cummings Radio, a Monthly Music Playlist

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 3, 2014) - Burton Cummings (www.BurtonCummings.com) announced today that he will curate a monthly playlist for music service aggregator bop.fm, starting with his second playlist titled "Journey For a Memorable Friday Evening." Fans can stream the "Journey For a Memorable Friday Evening" starting today at http://bop.fm/p/OPEG.

"Playlists are a very familiar part of my life. I always have access to dozens and dozens of playlists in my car on the iPods," says Burton Cummings.

Each month, Cummings will take fans on a musical journey that spans generations and introduces fans to artists and music that they might have never listened to before.

"My playlists will always be all over the musical map, whether it be instrumental music, soundtrack goodies, classic rock, progressive and golden age jazz, or anything else that's interesting or even mildly compelling in some way," says Cummings.

"With Burton Cummings Radio, my goal is to explore and present many varied styles and genres of music, but they will all be done well. I love any music that draws me in," Burton Cummings goes on to say.

"By partnering with the Y Combinator backed bop.fm we are simultaneously creating a wonderful experience for music fans to discover new music while exposing Burton Cummings' music and musical insight to a whole new generation of fans," says Innovation Consultant Grayson Brulte of Brulte & Company.

"When Burton reached out to us to collaborate, we were deeply honored and, frankly, surprised," says Shehzad Daredia, CEO of bop.fm. "There's not a lot of musicians from his generation who understand and embrace streaming as well as innovative ways to interact with their fans. Then we checked out his slick website and realized just how far ahead of his peers Burton is when it comes to digital strategy. Plus, he makes some pretty eclectic playlists."
