Yesterday the BMI (Broadcast Music Inc) celebrated and paid tribute to the top UK songwriters and composers. As part of this virtual awards ceremony, special Million-Air Awards were presented to recognise iconic songs that have reached a million or more broadcast performances in the USA by UK and European songwriters and publishers.
Receiving the award for five million plays of ‘True’ Spandau Ballet songwriter and Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets singer & guitarist Gary Kemp commented “I wrote True when I was 22 years old, I never thought I would be standing here nearly forty years later. We're living in a time when we see a billion YouTube views, but nothing is quite like a DJ putting your record on, on a radio”.
