Promo Only MPE (http://www.promoonlympe.com) today announced the addition of 20+ year music industry veteran, Michael Becker, to its team as in-house consultant.

In addition to his role with Promo Only MPE, Becker will continue working as president of Reel Sound, Inc., a company specializing in music supervision, record promotion & marketing services.
Becker’s lengthy and illustrious career includes highly successful stints at MCA and Motown Records, ten years with Sony Music, and as Vice President of National Promotion with Capitol Records.

“Michael’s extensive knowledge of music and the music industry speaks for itself,” said Dean Ernst, Director of Promo Only MPE. “He is greatly respected by recording artists, producers, managers and record label executives. We are extremely fortunate to add such a talented and knowledgeable veteran to our team in Michael Becker and look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship moving forward.”
“I sincerely believe that digital delivery is the way of the future,” said Michael Becker. “After numerous calls to radio stations that couldn't find a CD, or calls from stations upset because someone received a CD before they did, I’m ecstatic that there is finally a way of getting broadcast quality music into the hands of radio instantaneously and simultaneously. I'm a strong believer in this service and am eager to help the staff at Promo Only MPE take it to the next level."
Promo Only MPE has consistently delivered the most tracks to radio and achieved the highest adoption rate across all formats of any digital distribution service currently available.
