Earthworks Entertainment's CEO Steven Humphries and Hit Parade Radio's President John Rook commented on the up coming launch.

Steven Humphries said, "It's been months in the making and we're about ready to launch the most exciting oldies radio format in the USA. With super talent like Larry Lujack and Wink Martindale plus the music you don't hear anywhere else, the format will be a major attraction to radio stations as they continue to downsize and cut back on programming cost."

Hit Parade Radio's President John Rook commented, "In all my years of programming, this is the most exciting project I've ever worked on. The first class talent and the incredible library of music that you won't hear on other 'oldies' stations make for a huge winning combination. I'm pleased to be once again working with Larry Lujack and Wink Martindale, as they truly enhance the music programming we are offering."

Humphries added, "With all the projects that we have in Earthworks, Hit Parade will be one of the first to generate revenue as we move into the first quarter of next year. We expect to generate in excess of $2.0M in advertising sales for the network in 2010."
