“Soon after the launch of my album “Time On My Hands” in 2017, the guys at RGO/The Smooth Guitar Place approached me with interest in my music for this boutique guitar-focused station. Clearly, guitar is their thing! With streams covering rock, jazz, and blues, the site is an often-visited favourite for many of my regular audience. This is reflected in the subsequent spins of my music and appearance on the station’s Top 20 Chart.
In late 2017, we put together a campaign to feature my work on the Artist page of RGO. It’s an easy to access reference point for my audience and a great marketing tool for folks from the music industry. Without doubt, the partnership with RGO/The Smooth Guitar Place has helped drive my music and brand to new audiences and continues to do so through RGO’s creative use of Spotify playlists.
Thank you, and here’s to our continued partnership!”

“Radio Guitar One has been a wonderful supporter of all three of my records so far. They seem to really care about the artist; every few weeks I get an email with updates of the new and improved ways they are helping to expose my music to a new audience. The artist page and online interview have been a delight to share to my social media pages. They really make a clean, classy looking page that reflected my album.
It's always a thrill to receive notifications of when my music makes their Radio Guitar One Top 20 chart, as well as see the spins reflected in other Smooth Jazz charts as well. I was more than happy to help support this station, as they have done more than I could hope for in exposing my music to a guitar driven audience!"

"When I recorded my "Stolen Cadillac" EP I was searching for a way to promote it and get noticed in a business where many are called but few are chosen. Luckily for me, I found Luke Wolk and Radio Guitar One. With his help, a great ad campaign, artist links, and RGO airplay, it did the job and got me noticed. When I released my next CD, "Everblue" it was quickly apparent that getting airplay was SO much easier thanks to my earlier success on Radio Guitar One. DJs, Radio Station Managers and listeners knew who I was or were willing to give my music a try.
"EverBlue" became a TOP 10 CD on the Roots Music Report and the single "Cigar Box Boogie" hit #1 on the Top 50 Blues Song Chart in May. The song and the album continue to chart 65 weeks after it's initial release. "Cigar Box Boogie" will be in the Top Ten RMR Blues Songs for the Year 2019 thanks in no small part to my association with Radio Guitar One. I cannot wait until 2020 and my continued support from (and for) the The Blues Guitar Place, the best place for my music. Thank you, Luke! "

"Radio Guitar One's pickup of multiple tracks from my latest two albums (These Walls, 2020, and Pass It On Down, 2019) has given my music a huge boost on countless fronts. Undoubtedly, not only has it helped me land top rankings on the Roots Music Report's Contemporary Folk and Alternative Folk Album charts (including charting #1 on the RMR!), but also to secure interviews and album/track reviews as well as broaden awareness of my name and music overall. What RGO does for indie artists—exposure, airplay and reporting to the RMR—is measured in tangible, real results.
For this independent alt-folk artist, having my music included on RGO playlists (FolkGuitarPlace and IndieGuitarPlace stations) in a mix with some of the biggest names in my genre is not only great to see, but it gives credence to my artistry. "

Radio Guitar One/The Blues Guitar Place has been instrumental in helping us get our music heard and our band recognized. Partnering with RGO/TBGP has proved invaluable on so many levels-- from airplay and spins to targeted audience exposure. It's like having a second publicist working behind the scenes. The artist page they put together for our last album was really impressive, and it proved to be a fantastic marketing tool. Without a doubt, RGO/TBGP helped us to achieve and sustain that Top-10 spot on the RMR Blues-Rock album chart. We are thrilled with the results. I'd highly recommend their services if you are serious about getting your brand and your music out there.

“Radio Guitar One and The Smooth Guitar Place have been great supporters of my record, "Midnight Daydream." I've received significant airplay and exposure from this amazing guitar based station, which has helped my record stay on the Smooth Jazz charts for 33 weeks and counting!"
- Dr. Dave of Dr. Dave and the Housecall Band
“For an independent artist like myself to be played alongside established artists is rare on internet radio and virtually unheard of on commercial terrestrial radio. Airplay on Radio Guitar One has resulted in all the benefits associated with increased exposure: more gig & touring offers, more livestreams and heightened name recognition for my brand. The bonus here is that I have been turned on to an internet-based radio station that provides convenient, accessible, enjoyable music across four guitar-centric genres 24 hours a day!"

"I would like to give a big heartful thanks to RGO and Luke Wolk for the amazing job they´re doing! Since starting to promote my latest album "Look Twice" with these guys, less than a month ago, it has been continuously on the top 20 charts - and even climbed up to number 1. I´m confident we´re reaching new audiences through having my music spin on RGO, whilst I get to work on my next album. I´ll be definitely continuing to work together with Luke and RGO, I really appreciate the atmosphere of personal contacts and the genuine enthusiasm for real music here!"

“Luke Wolk and Radio Guitar One are simply awesome! Our current album, Trippin’, was released in June 2018, and 5 ½ months later in December 2018 one of the tracks (Ride ‘em High) was still number 2 on their Smooth Cuts chart! RGO are music guys! They know good stuff and they play it. I wish all the radio stations operated like that!
- Robert Miller of Project Grand Slam

“Connecting with Luke Work and Radio Guitar One has brought my music to a new and diverse audience of people who love guitar music! The RGO team is super easy to work with and it’s been wonderful to have my music charting, in my case on RGO Folk Cuts, with the release of my album Sage. The charts are also a great way to meet and hear other guitarists. Thank you RGO for supporting indie artists like myself, I appreciate this kind of quality support. Cheers!!”

"Big thanks to Radio Guitar One and Luke Wolk in helping to promote my album and reaching out to new audiences of guitar music. It's also an honor and exciting to be on the Top 20 of the Smooth Jazz & RGO Charts. They are great supporters of small label / independent musicians as myself. I will definitely continue to be working with Radio Guitar One on my next album and any singles releases!! Keep up the great work RGO! "

Advertising on Radio Guitar One at The Smooth Guitar Place has been an invaluable marketing tool since the inception of my "Cast Your Care" project in 2018. As a guitar player, it is an extremely cost-effective way to reach listeners whose musical taste is in line with the product you are offering. The webpage allows your fans to learn more about you and purchase your music."
- Art Ruprecht
"My experience with Radio Guitar One has been very helpful. The plays & exposure have positively impacted both sales & chart activity for my latest album “Mississippi Suitcase”. It has also increased name recognition & raised my artist profile, which are highly desirable aspects, particularly for an independent artist.
Thank you Luke Wolk & Radio Guitar One!"
