IN THE BEGINNING:
EDM America TV was conceived in 2008 and finally launched in 2013 by AddictedToRadio.com co-founder Sal Amato.

PRESIDENT: SAL AMATO:
Sal Amato’s history starts as a club DJ in 1978 to actor in films and TV shows, voice-over work and label owner as well as A&R for some of Chicago’s first house labels including S.O.S. Records.

As a mix show DJ his mixes were heard on KKFR Phoenix and Chicago’s legendary WBMX AM & FM where his friendship with PD Lee Michaels would kindle business relationships through the years.

WBMX is where house music was brought from the clubs to masses on radio station WBMX AM & FM in Chicago. Many of today’s biggest names cite WBMX and House Music as their influences and we’re humbled at what we started here in 1981.

Amato began streaming in 1996 at Modern Tracks (sold to Promo Only). The goal was to supply music and information online to radio stations and DJS in the U.S.A. Through his relationship with Jeff McClusky & Associates, all Gavin P1 reporters were serviced music on a monthly basis as well as record pool information on a website that was the first of it’s kind. From there, Cyber Radio [the pre-cursor to Energy Radio in Chicago] streamed to over 140,000 listeners on the weekends from 92.7 FM in the Chicago area throughout the summer of 1997. It was Amato’s streaming and helping create awareness for the radio station which enabled the radio station to be valued and sold at 15 million vs. the 3 million it was worth before Cyber Radio.

It was in 1997 when Amato was tapped by IBD to handle the production of content for Cyber City [the first feature of it’s kind ever for over 3,000,00 people at the massive summertime event A Taste Of Chicago].

It was at Cyber Radio where Amato worked with Lightningcast to develop the first implementation of the first ever ‘in-stream’ audio ad insertion in 1998 as well as delivering the first ever internet radio stream to be broadcast on FM terrestrial radio at Chicago’s 105.9 FM, WCKG in Dec. of 1998.

Amato has lobbied on Capitol Hill on behalf of the internet broadcasters early on to strike a fair deal between online broadcasters and the copyright owners. Along with that battle, he and other broadcasters had to battle Mark Cuban’s nefarious plan that is considered to have had a hand in wiping out a massive chunk of the first wave of internet broadcasers. That didn’t stop Amato as he continued lobbying efforts and was instrumental in the passage of the Small Webcasters Act. His negotiations were directly related to 27 Representative signing on to the Bill.

After leaving the business for a few years, Amato came back on board to aid and retool 1CLUB.FM.

Through his extensive programming knowledge, Amato rebranded the sullied reputation of 1CLUB.FM into AddictedToRadio. The site was nominated as Best Radio Station Global for 10 years in a row at the WMC’s IDMA’s.

Amato left his company in 2013 to explore new opportunities and clubhead.tv is one of the many.

Clubhead TV is part of a family of websites that includes two Chicago legendary radio stations online, WBMX.COM and Q101.com
