Classic Artists Today was founded by R. K. White, a music fanatic who grew up listening to the transistor radio when AM Pop ruled. The early 60's saw the emergence of various popular music genre’s from the California Sound to Folk to the British Invasion.
The growth of FM radio opened up all new possibilities. Progressive FM stations playing “deep cuts” was where it was at, going beyond the Top 40 rotation. There's a generation that is being overlooked by todays' “popular” music…it’s time we get back the tried and true formula, White states. R.K. is a successful businessman having played active roles in major real estate and development deals totaling over $ 1 billion dollars.
Ash Gilpin, a successful entrepreneur, is the Web and E-Commerce King for C.A.T. His talents range from a wide spectrum of business enterprises. CyberSpace is his game and C.A.T. music is part of what makes the world go round...
