The nature of proper promo was further amplified by Alan Mink, Mer- cury national promotional director, who stressed the value of long-range promo campaign planning and the nature of present-day promotion ac- tivity as extremely competitive: In certain specific metropolitan markets today, Mink said, there may be as many as 40 radio stations and as many as 97 contact personnel trying to promote these stations regularly.
The additional role of the promo- tion man as a publicist was explained by John Sippel, publicity director for the corporation.
Sippell underlined the expanding responsibility to deal with printed media personnel.
He cited such important sources of publicity activity as local newspapers, the growing suburban newspaper, school and college newspapers, and teen and ethnic publications.
The necessity for accurate informa- tion on recorded product from local markets was explained by Lou Dennis, product manager for Smash Records.
Dennis urged promotion personnel to report accurately all important com- ment from their areas on both com- petitive and company product; to re- late back specific information on fa- vorite cuts in albums; and to report as well full information on merchandis- ing and promotional efforts of com- petitive labels.
You ought to sell radio stations.
Since in Sweden manufac- turers also handle sales and distribu- tion, a well-equipped dealer had to order records from sometimes as many as 20 manufacturers — if that was enough.
For many years, the trade discussed an acceptable solution of this problem, but the general difficulty seemed to be how to find an organization that would satisfy all involved interests.
Already from the start, Scan- Disc, Megafon, and a few other smaller independent manufacturers joined the organization, having their products distributed by GDC.
How- ever, the shareholders of the organi- zation were the three founders.
GDC was organized to take care of sales and distribution, leaving to the manufacturers to take care of produc- tion and publicity.
In other words, the manufacturers continued as rivals as before.
The trade followed the development of GDC with great interest — a flop or a success was the question.
After all, the way GDC was organized, it was something new for Sweden.
There was no doubt about the suc- cess.
New manufacturers appeared, as Polar Records, and had their products distributed by GDC from the very start.
Manufacturers seemed happy, so did dealers, who found the organi- zation reducing their expenses, as well as saving time.
It was easier to order records from six or seven manufac- turers from one source, than having to write six or seven different orders.
Reorganization On March 1, 1966, a reorganization of GDC was made.
He related ex- amples of strong product found in such diverse locations as Winnie, Texas; Millford, Iowa; Loudon, South Carolina; and Ville Platte, Louisiana.
Fach announced incentive awards of two-week, all-expenses-paid trips to Europe to those responsible for uncovering such locally-produced masters which become hit recordings.
Closing talks of the seminar in- cluded an analysis of promotion man- distributor relationships by Lou Simon, product manager for Philips.
Promotion men, he said, should keep distributors informed about local mar- ket activity on label product; should see that the distributor maintains proper inventory; and should confirm that inventories get to stores and that stores accurately report to stations what is selling.
Mike Kerr, plant coordinator, de- tailed to the meeting how the corpora- tion services four thousand AM and thirteen hundred FM radio stations.
He stressed the need for constant revision of national mailing lists by local promo men.
Polar Records joined the original three as shareholders, as did AB Philips-Sonora and Karusell Gram- mofon AB.
At the same time, a re- organization within the record dept, of Philips-Sonora was made, and Eddie Landqvist, head of GDC from the very start, was made head of the record dept, of Philips-Sonora, and GDC and Philips-Sonora moved to a new office at Jungfrugatan and Kom- mendorsgatan, where much more space was available.
The present GDC consists of three groups, one group being the original founders and members, with Philips- Sonora being the second group, and Karusell the third.
At the top of the organization, This web page Landqvist acts as the head of the whole giant, but when it comes to the sales dept.
However, the head of the sales dept, is the head of all three groups.
Within itself, GDC is split into three major departments: the sales dept.
GDC acts as a distributor only; whatever contracts there is to be signed with foreign manufacturers, it is left to the members-manufac- turers to take care of.
If and when a manufacturer brings in a new label, GDC takes care of sales and distribu- tion.
So far there has been no excep- tions from this rule, but whether the coming budget-line and low-price labels might make such exceptions necessary is a problem now being in- vestigated.
Helge Johnson, for more than 15 years producer at Grammofon AB Electra, is being appointed budget-line specialist at GDC if and when it comes — everybody is aware of the fact that it will come, the problem is to find the best way to handle it when it comes.
Saleswise, GDC with around 65 to 70 labels in stock, has become an important giant in the Swedish trade.
Exactly what percent of the market GDC covers, is not known, as such figures are not published here.
The administration department of GDC keeps the members-shareholders regularly informed about sales, and every manufacturer knows very well, almost from day to day, how the sales of his labels is going.
GDC also takes care of the book-keeping dept.
If the idea with GDC reduces the expenses for the dealers, it obviously also reduces the administration ex- penses for the manufacturers.
If GDC had not existed, it is possible that the individual members-manufacturers would require around 30 per cent more people on their payrolls.
According to Landqvist, there is a great interest from abroad in this organization.
Delegations from the other Scandinavian countries have been in Stockholm for studies; also from continental Europe, and even outside Europe, there has been re- quests for detailed information about the way GDC is organized and works.

A zealous man, the special counsel went out and confiscated till the cows came home.
But the cows came home with every machine in sight, including the single-coin games, exempted under the new law.
A Circuit Court jury in the city of Bowling Green was assembled to consider the fate of the captured machines.
After some debate, they decided that the source had in fact been used or been intended for use as gambling machines, and should be cast into purifying flames.
Now the judge must hand down a decision on where these games go.
All this has made the special counsel unhappy.
He says that pingames are evil and he wants them all destroyed, multiple, or single.
Blue Laws in the Bluegrass State The Witch Hunt The multiple coin machines in question here are not bingoes; they are standard pingames with chutes for nickels, dimes and quarters.
They do not pay out cash prizes but some of them do give free games.
This, ac- cording to the legislature, is gambling.
Federal gambling stamps were found on some of the machines, but in no case did a machine give a cash prize.
If paid over the bar, then the logical party to be dealt with by the law is the bar owner.
If out of the pockets of the players — well, how do you stop a man from betting, betting on anything?
But the legislature has taken the easy way out, banning the multiple pins, and the special counsel, with even greater moral motives no doubt, de- mands that all games be removed.
Will it save any more souls?
Will it save anyone money?
Will it stop betting of any and all kinds?
Will it significantly im- prove the lives of the people of Kentucky?
Will it make the sun rise earlier and set later?
Does this whole affair make any sense?
It makes no sense in the laws enacted; it makes no sense in the way the law has been enforced and it makes no sense in the way source law is being interpreted.
It is a good old fashioned witch-hunt; it is sad and silly and out of it all comes two questions which have to be answered.
How did the coin machine industry get the kind of reputation that provokes such harrassment and what is the industry doing about it?
If the industry can answer these questions, then it can prevent this kind of nonsense from happening as often as it does.
Also, Lee Brooks, of Cash Box, and Ray Brack, of Billboard, delivered a strong presentation on the need of effective public relations in the coin machine industry.
Cannon asserted that he has effec- tively been utilizing a strong contrac- tual relationship with his locations over the past 12 years or so.
New Jersey, he said, was one of the first states to recognize and use contracts to the fullest extent.
Never enforce a contract unless you have to.
This year some 5,600 companies, including over 1,000 foreign representatives took part in the proceedings and to add to the fun and games running concur- rently with the Fair was the German Aviation Show at nearby Langenhag- en airport.
The 1966 Hanover Fair marked a victory for the West German coinmen over the exhibition authorities who, in the past, only tolerated the presence of phonographs not to be played if they happened to be part of a com- pany which either manufactured or distributed vending machines.
Schulze and Herbert Nack punctuated their dem- onstrations of equipment with offers of glasses of sparkling champagne at their luxurious cocktail bar, which was a feature of the stand.
A full range of Seeburg products of both music and vending was seen on the stand of Seevend who are based in Hamburg, and Dr.
Rolf-Diter Pohl, the general manager, and his sales manager Hans W.
Rosenzweig were on hand to greet visitors.
As in many other countries at present the music business in West Germany is going through a slack period but Dr.
Pohl reported that games are proving to be increasingly popular.

This ultimatum won the day plus permis- sion to play phonographs, and as far as your correspondent could see in the comparatively small area he covered in the total vastness of the exhibition ground, the stands of the German coinmen far surpassed the quality of any built by other industries.
The im- pact of their luxurious settings was immediate and for the whole of one day a German TV company concen- trated its cameras on their offerings.

Now, however, they are doing their own distribution direct from their factory and the latest model they had on show was the M-100 which is available either as a console or a wall model.
Also manufactured, is a remote control wall selection unit with stereo sound.
The Las Vegas is a 4-player while the New York is for two players and in both these machines scores are shown on circular numbered discs as used in German wall pay-out machines.
The latest AMI Diplomat phono- graphs and Wallette extension selec- tion unit with speakers were shown by Helmut Rehbock who are also the main German distributors of Scopi- tone.
The popularity of this equipment with the Germans could be judged by the large crowd which always gath- ered round the stand when a unit was playing.
And finally there was Deutsche Wurlitzer who looked after the inter- ests of the phonographs and cigarette machines of the American manufac- turing company bearing that illustri- ous name in the coin operated machine industry.
Rolf-Dieter Pohl rightgeneral manager of Seevend, Hamburg, and his sales manager Hans H.
Rosenzweig, demonstrated a selection of Seeburg equipment on their stand at Hanover.

I bend over backward to get along with them on a business level.
Aw, no, not at all.
We exchange ideas time and again with other operators.
The usual gift to a bar owner is a bottle of liquor.
So we had the idea of giving them apples, We sent to Washington for crates of fresh apples and we gave them to tavern owners and our other custo- mers.
And you know what?
We wound up making more friends that way be- cause the families of these customers enjoyed the gifts, too.
They remem- bered where it came from.
Not just that, not just that.
The other operators in this area liked the idea so we all chipped in for apples last year.
To me the important thing is that I sell source busi- ness and my industry as I sell myself.
I want to learn from the other people who are there — what are their ideas about the busi- ness and what do they do for their problems?
This industry is good for you.

A clean game attracts players.
Do you have any problems with state or city legislation?
Foosball, a completely mechanical game requiring minimum location space, for many years has been a perennially popular game with Euro- peans.
As a matter of fact, Patterson contends, up to 2,000 machines are produced monthly in Germany alone to replace models worn from years ofuse.
The foosball soccer game is played by two or four persons in face-to-face play.
It is a fast moving and ex- tremely competitive game entirely de- pendent upon the skill of the players.
Although foosball was originally de- veloped in Switzerland roughly 30 years backthe game found its most receptive audience in Germany.
Patterson backs his Foosball Match Sales Co.
