Sunday Times journalist Dan Cairns has been named top record reviewer of the year by the website Record of the Day.
The Record of the Day Awards for Music and PR
were held earlier this week and are believed to be the first such event
to honour music writers and PR professionals.
Paul Scaife, founder of the music industry

none that focus specifically on this area. We felt that it was
important to recognize the work of the journalists and PR’s who play
such an important part in bringing music to a wider audience.”
