IF MUSIC'S Top Shakers in 2008 Jukebox Listen

No point in pretending it was a bumper year for record sales but, as every before and every year forthwith, the cream will always rise to the top

No surprise that the biggest selling album across all formats is our very own Master Jerome. BBE dropped the ball with this one, It should have and could have been massive for the everyone concerned but hey, that's another example why the music industry has self imploded in the last 5 years.

The 2nd biggest selling album at IF Towers. You would be hard pushed to find a sweeter male vocalist anywhere in the world today. We still can't believe a major didn't wanna sign him, it's a crime!
