JUDY LIBOW, an industry professional for over 30 years, began her career in the music business at WQIV, a progressive rock radio station in New York City. Judy’s radio experience and strong industry contacts brought her to Atlantic Records, an association that she enjoyed for 16 years. Rising to a senior executive position as Vice President of Radio Promotion, Judy helped launch and develop the careers of internationally renowned, multi-platinum artists such as AC/DC, Foreigner, INXS, Phil Collins and The Blues Brothers! In addition, she’s credited with helping further the careers of The Rolling Stones, Genesis, Yes, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Stevie Nicks, Crosby Stills & Nash and Led Zeppelin (including Robert Plant as a solo artist). Following her tenure at Atlantic Records, Judy established Libow Unlimited Inc., a national music promotion and artist development company whose clients have included Bon Jovi, Julian Lennon, Midnight Oil, Def Leppard, Styx, and REO Speedwagon.
Classics Du Jour the newest division of Libow Unlimited is the culmination of years of rock music appreciation and simply being a fan.
PAUL RAPPAPORT was Senior VP at Columbia Records where he enjoyed a 33 year career in radio promotion and marketing. He is recognized as being instrumental in the careers of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Santana, Journey, Elvis Costello, Judas Priest, Alice in Chains, and many more. He is also noted as the Co-Creator and Executive Producer of the Emmy Award winning series, A&E’s Live by Request, producing 40 live prime-time television music specials featuring a diverse array of artists from Tony Bennett and Eurythmics, to Elton John and David Bowie. He also created the Columbia Records Radio Hour, a very successful live performance radio series, which broadcast for 8 years and produced 2 “Best Of” CD’s. A personal highlight came in 1989, when Paul was invited by Pink Floyd to play a song with them on stage at the London Arena as a thank you for all the work he had done with the band!
Paul continues to produce media events and award-winning radio specials with his company Tres Hombres. He is excited to be a part of Classics Du Jour.
