THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT! is closing its doors this week. Manager and Editor Dave Chaney said, "The passion for the format and music is still there but it has become increasingly difficult for us to monetize the site." Dave added, "I've valued our role as a resource for hundreds of radio stations across the country over the past 15 years. Despite the never-ending options, non-comm Triple A radio is holding its own while music discovery and the artist connection remains as vital as ever. We wish continued success to all of our many friends at Triple A radio and in the music business."

Thanks to all of our fine contributors through the years, including Mark Radway, Jim Nelson, Ken Mills, Leslie Rouffe, Jeff Clarke, the late Mike Lyons, and our recent "Tracking Triple A" columnist Jeff Penfield.

And thanks so much to all of our readers and early supporters: Dan Reed, Scott Arbough, Zeb Norris, Stacy Owen, Jeff McCord, Ira Gordon, Dana Marshall, Brad Hockmeyer, Scott Mullins, Benji McPhail, Michelle Wolf, Dave Benson, Mike Sauter, Barbara Dacey, Rita Houston, Rich Robinson, Martin Anderson, Sky Daniels, Bill Bowker, Jon Hart, Mark Abuzzahab, Jim Manion, Tom Killorin, Mark Fishman, Spider Glenn, Stasia Lanier, Diane Michaels, Keefer Fulgham, and Norm Winer, among a long list.

On the music side, big thanks to Kevin Sutter, Jenni Sperandeo, Dan Connelly, Ray Gmeiner, Paul Langton, Trina Tombrink, Jeff Cook, Adrian Moreira, Lisa Sonkin, John Butler, Tim Kolleth, Drew Murray, Julie Muncie, J.B. Brenner, Nick Attaway, Jeff Ballard, Bob Laul, Peter Hay, Ed Bunker, Jennifer Daunt, David Avery, Jenn Lanchart, Barry Lyons, Rob Gill, Jo Jo Gentry, Brian Corona, Geoff Kulawick, Lindsay Reid, Lori Kampa, Jeff Appleton, and James Evans, to name but a few.

I want to especially thank John Schoenberger at All Access for his encouragement early on. And of course, a tip of the hat to our old pal the late Art Phillips, who I nicknamed 'The Under Assistant West Coast Promo Man.' Art loved that title. (For you kids, that's an early track by the Stones.)

Please keep reading the outstanding Triple A related sites and blogs out there like John's Triple A column at AllAccess, Ken Mill's non-comm blog Spark!, Paul Marszalek's site The Top 22, or Jack Barton's Triple A column at FMQB. They've got you covered.
