the frankie m. award
“This award has no application fee's and does not represent egotism. This award represents the humble and hard working artist. ”
Discover YOU RADIO is a radio station that is not about YouTube Views, Facebook Followers, Twitter Followers, Thumbs Ups or Thumbs Downs. We are not about how popular an artist is and we are very far from rotten ego's. Our station is about those who work hard and are humble. We have been in this business for many years and have attended many conventions, venues etc. Without name dropping, we have worked with and have just generally hung out with legends in the music business. In particular there is an artist that Discover YOU RADIO has grown to appreciate so much that we have named an award after him. This award is called "The Frankie M. Award" and we are proud to have created such an award. You see this award cannot be applied for. There is no contest or voting process for this award. There are no winner announcements until the award has been delivered and confirmed. This award will show up unannounced to the artist in whom we find to be hard working and humble. This award is like non other because it doesn't go out to those who achieve popularity or a huge social media following. It doesn't go out for the biggest sales an artist makes. This award is not revenue driven so we can gain a profit from it. We don't care about that at all. This award is 100% funded by Discover YOU RADIO. In fact we simply see the coveting of social media likes and video views as a nuisance to genuine art. Quite frankly it's annoying when thumbs ups, thumbs downs, likes, dislikes views and follows are what is more important to artists instead of their art. This award goes out to show true respect to those who deserve it, the artist who creates to create and share their passion without social media compromise.
about frankie m.
There is a history to Frankie M. and Discover YOU RADIO is going to share our gratitude to this hard working humble performer. Frankie is out of the New Jersey area and frequents a place called Bahrs Landing in Highlands New Jersey. He is one of the original members of the popular group known as Harborside. Frankie is genuinely kind and humble. He makes his living playing gigs all around New York, New Jersey and the Tri State areas. Frankie's music career is one that many can learn from. Frankie is not too proud to play certain venues such as assisted living facilities either. Frankie brings joy to those who have had an era that they loved by entertaining them with the songs that were popular in their time. "When they hear something that they're familiar with their faces light up" stated Frankie several years ago. There is just something about people who are genuine and who bring genuine happiness to others. This is why Discover YOU RADIO is pleased to have an award named after one of our best friends. The Legendary Frankie M.
